Largely, AMD virtually disappeared in 2011. It was already weakening in 2010. Have to wait and see if this branching out into new markets and platforms will work for them or not. Historically, a good fraction of them will bust. But this time, they may not be able to comfortably rely on the core PC sector as before.
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. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
