I think the conventional wisdom is that "normal" growth in global GDP of a few percent should produce semiconductor market growth of between 5 and 10 percent.
So it would seem that Bruce Diesen is not predicting a boost but a return to normal.
Perhaps he thinks the U.S. and European debt crises will be less stultifying by then. I dont think they will have gone away, but perhaps the global economy will be more used to them.
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.
