I was reading this and wondering if Dnote is a new and improved D class amplifier technology. The multi-coil speakers sound interesting, I wonder about the cost and manufacturing aspects though. Given this novel approach, it would seem to make a non-compatible audio system; will this be received well or face resistance due to the non-standard speakers?
Cool stuff! Not only save components but also evolve the speaker technology to a new high level! Intel is so smart in funding such technology and of course enjoy including such technology to the computer chipset without building anything analog!
A new and novel concept. Dnote do not use a D/A converter and amplifier. The digital signals are processed in a DSP chip and drives multiple coil loud speaker.The loud speaker itself works as a D/A converter. The prototype loud speaker has 8 coils.

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.
