Increased adoption will always be based on fundamental shifts in the SSD value proposition and not short term market abnormalities such as those caused by the terrible floods in Thailand. Given the much smaller market size of SSDs to HDDs, the impact to the SSD market of seemingly small upsides when compared to HDD volumes may be very interesting to watch as they will likely be impactful.
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.
