MEMS is having the best time it can. As mobile continues to penetrate, expect MEMS impact to continue to move forward. There are many more areas for MEMS to see growth besides the auto and mobile industries. Medical is the next opportunity and we are just starting.
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.
