I'm impressed with the positive trends of this company. According to one source it is now California's Orange County’s "third-biggest chip maker by sales and reported about $520 million in revenue for the 12 months through October," of last year. Analysts have it pegged to reach $1 billion in annual sales thru more acquisitions. Security both in civilian and military apps is a growing field, ans Microsemi seems to be in the thick of it.
Wow, there is a sudden wave of acquisition among companies. Is it a sign of industrial consolidation? BTW, Microsemi is aggressively widening its product portfolio and it is interesting to see how it grow and manage so many different areas of applications.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
