This is a fitting tribute to the 50th DAC; that is, having a most respectful and courteous professional being general chair. His indefatigable and relentless pursuit to better the world of design and test has earned him the EDA industry's full honor. I wish Yervant Zorian the best in making the half century mark of the premiere design automation conference a truly unforgettable occasion. God job "??? ??" (pronounced: love em)!
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.
