Well said, Maheen. It is good to hear that there was a good vibe at DVCon. EDA depends on a constant bubbling up of small companies that bring innovation to the table. The dearth of investment is troubling, but it's heartening to know that entrepreneurs such as yourself are still living the dream.
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.
