These cheap phone and tablet announcements for huge Indian market come and go...after you scrub the surface you find out that they are cheaper but less reliable with lower performance hence typically not leading to anything meaningful...Kris
Wow wow MIPS wins another scrub account. Obviously they can't afford an ARM license so they go cheap. All I ever see is cheap wins for MIPS. Snore. Yawn.
What happened to MIPS being sold? Who is the buyer?
I guess the goal of the $100 computer might become a reality in that part of the world. I wonder what this means for MIPS though - the volumes of these tablets have to be in the less than 1% range - does it even matter from a business point of view?
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.
