Really great News! We need more gvt support! Maybe we will see a scenario like we saw at SC300 (first 300mm fab in the world; JV between Infineon and Motorola). However, this may all there will be: nothing more but R&D or pilot in Europe. Just can't see 450mm volume in Europe. Way too expensive there even with gvt support.
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.
