Finally ST is able to win a design and compete with quallcom, TI and Nvidia. ST should be happy bcos at least now they are able to get into this because the smart phone market is set for bigger and bigger growth in the next three years.
The NovaThor is actually a Nova A9500 combination with the Thor M6718 Modem A9500 in a single die, so called NovaThor, so actually the core hardware components are from ST-Ericsson, lets hope that ST-Ericsson with again come in the technology race with this NovaThor adaption by mobile market.
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.
