That's true. But that is where they build the processors for Apple.
I've heard in the past that Apple insisted that Samsung build a fab in the U.S. to make its processors. That doesn't make a lot of sense to me since the processor are shipped to Asia, where the products are assembled.
Last week it came out that Apple bought 300 acres of land in Austin to expand its facility there. Apple plans to hire another 3,600 employees there.
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.
