It is very encouraging to know that the Indian semiconductor market is estimated to grow to 100 billion in 2020. I think the semiconductor market in India was $6.5 billion in 2010 and is estimated to grow to $9.8 billion by 2012 (~50%). With this same growth rate, it might reach $50 billion by 2020. Is $100 billion not too optimistic?
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.
