I think the idea was to bring the STM approach to the company with focus being on DWINs and new revenue, while Delfassy was acting as a change manager. Unfortunately for him, the change saw the company lose revenue and burnt a hole in the pockets of it's parents. Lamouche has recently joined STM as COO but he has a good history with IBM semiconductor. If I am not wrong, he managed the creation of Altis Semi. venture between IBM and Infineon.
I wonder what sort of shift will the company see as a result of this new appointment? I would like to have seen a little more background on the new guy in charge. Did he lead a cost cutting or restructuring effort in his previous position? What is the motivation / driving force behind this selection other than the last guy was leading when losses were mounting?
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.
