As Flash capacity grows to satisfy the new demand for SSDs in large deployments expect the usual price crash to follow in a few months. Prices below $1 per Gbyte will be here sooner than later. Anyone want to make a prediction on the date for $1 per Gbyte availability?
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.
