But will that be enough?
I must say I was quite surprised by this news. It's interesting to me that the first phase of the project involves 450-mm, while the second is EUV. EUV is already running late, why not start with that? Gartner analyst Bob Johnson just said widespread deployment of 450-mm is unlikely to occur before 2019 or 2020.
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.
