re: More DRAM leftovers unless players cooperate

Hi,You make a good point, but I don't think the analyst was suggesting any kind of price fixing. I think what they meant was that the vendors need to try to be smart about serving the market and not just flooding it with inventory. Still, it is rather a fine line, I agree. The problem is that starving out a competitor with high volume/low cost might short-term give consumers an advantageous price, but long-term cuts the level of competition and ultimately makes consumers prisoners of a limited number of suppliers.

Good analogy...table food and DRAMs. Table food is a just a commodity unless some the supplier or distributor do something unique (locally grown, organic, great display/service in the grocery store, etc.). Otherwise just the price of the commodity. DRAMs...just a commodity for now.

As long as the price fixing is done in the form of uncoordinated public announcements, it's all legit.

This "necessary" cooperation might be labelled "price fixing" by the trade commissions. It seems to be a dangerously fine line to walk.

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.
