In DRAM, Hynix has 23 nm and Samsung has 21 nm. Elpida went belly up before really starting 25 nm. Whoever takes over Elpida really does not gain an advantage over the South Korean DRAM competitors, in fact, only increases their own burden to support while attempting to catch up.
Accepting bids from their competitors for the opportunity to "invest" doesn't seem appropriate in this case, unless they just want to take their technology then shut down their fabs. I don't see any other scenario for a possible profit (or loss reduction) for the "investors".
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.
