TSMC's nearly 30% net profitability is impressive these days in the hardware industry! I am not at all surprised to see 65-nanometer accounting for 26 percent... not all the products need advanced tech nodes. Further, I would suspect the older technology nodes are also the ones with higher profit margins with better yields.
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.
