So what kind of touchscreen does out have? Saw mention of the Elan components for a resistive touchscreen. Is this really a resistive screen with the life limitations and only single touch? Capacitive touch is certainly the expected norm in phones and tablets.
The price of looks very attractive for a tab with a quad core processor, 1GB DDR3 and other features. This is going to be a big hit!
Did I miss the BOM cost? Is there an estimate of BOM cost available? I think the margin should be very low like the same for Amazon's Kindle Fire...and it is mostly targeted to eat Apple's share by selling more of Google's Apps.
Allan : Could you pl. confirm the type of DRAM on board the Nexus 7. Is it really DDR3 per your comment above or are they still using LP DDR 2 like other Tablets ? Perhaps you can provide the Part No. as well, Thx.
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.
