Will this new technology helps Apple be ahead of competitions? Although many people focus on the performance difference between iOS and Android, a higher performance hardware surely helps to pull the distance further. Apple, being a whole company playing both hardware and software, surely see this advantage.
Very interesting. This looks like it could be a good addition to their semiconductor efforts. It will be very interesting to see what comes of this downstream, especially in another year or so in flash intensive devices.
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.
