I think, generally speaking, many Japanese companies are undervalued these days. Usually, that means that it's time to invest.
But the problem is that nobody seems to have enough confidence that these Japanese companies -- including Elpida -- can get back to be profitable. And that may as well be true.
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.
