So the teardown is only important to the next company that will make the next solid state media player/displayer to compete with the iPad? So Apple's products are made in China with a quality and longevity to match. And with totally controlled content also from Apple. Sounds more like monopoly and less like innovation. The manufacturing Tech in the iPad has been around for years. So Apple's revenue stream is more about gizmodoland and very little about innovation.
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.
