TI's Silicon Valley Labs has incorporated much of the former National Semiconductor NS Labs. Projects there are a continuation of some NS projects prior to TI's acquisition as well as new focus driven by TI.
Speaking from personal experience, both the NS Labs activities and now the total TI Silicon Valley Labs environment will result in disruptive solutions to customer problems in the near future.
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.
