Analyst Bruce Diesen of Carnegie now reckons the 2012 chip market will be flat compared with 2011 and will show a 7 percent rise in 2013.
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. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
