The rise of a substantial MEMS pure play foundry infrastructure will allow fabless and fab-lite companies to participate. In number of projects, the startups still outpace the established companies, though the established companies have the resources to support the development, qual, and market launch process.
I believe MEMS growth is just in its initial stages. We will have many revolutionary MEMS prodcuts available in the maket in coming days. And this will help semiconductor growth to stay in positive territory.
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.
