In my opinion, OmniVision (OVTI) should definitely be on the Top25 fabless list. It had more than $920M revenue for 4 quarters ended in Jan 2012.
Also, when did the old HP Semi group (aka Avago) become a Singapore company? On its own web site, it is happy to state "Avago Technologies Named One of America's Most Trustworthy Companies by Forbes." Does that mean for tax (or tax evasion)reason, it is registered in Singapore, but for business reason, it still likes to claim itself a US company?
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.
