Two carbon based flexible ink-jet printer circuit solutions in a month! "Graphene printed via ink-jet, ups mobility" (Peter Clarke) on 11/28/2011 in EETimes and now this news. Interesting how related parallel solutions to a problem can appear in such close proximity. I can't wait to see all the applications. I wonder when the first ink jet printer cartridges will be available for us to fabricate our own circuits on our home printers.
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.
