What is the difference of this wireless charging from the existing solution out there? How small it can achieve? It is good to have wireless charging but with the slim case that all people are chasing after, small size surely is a very important advantage. Whether such technology helps the sales of gadget very much depends on how small this inductive loop and related circuits occupy.
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.
