Rather unfortunate that this is what it is coming to: the hollowing out of stalwart Japanese companies. Don't they see that another decade or so and they will be completely 'out'-foxed by the foundries.
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.
