As daleste said DRAM is gonna very tough since flash is taking over it.. but ELPIDA shd come out of these bad times with some smart strategies.. since other DRAM vendors are still doing better,, i hope they will come out of these soon..
I don't know how people make a living in the DRAM business. I recently heard that a Gartner analyst said that in the history of DRAM, more money has actually been lost than made and that only a couple of companies (Samsung is one) are in the black in their entire history of producing and selling DRAM.
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.
