I wonder why this is only finally coming about: Dual core/dual threaded technology taking so long to be produced at this level is because of management decisions, certainly not technological barriers. Both Intel and AMD have missed out, at least until soon, it seems. Perhaps this will cause Apple to re-think the glaring and annoying limitations placed on the otherwise incredible iPad if they want to retain top-dog status in this area. It may be too late. If the quality is there (a very big if), I will run over my iPad and upgrade to a more functional tablet
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.
