that is very true @reneCardenas...which is probably why we have Xilinx-Altera duo-poly...Atmel has a small niche and others like Tabula are trying but chances are small that they will join the big 2 because of teh sheer size of the investment required
But doesn't the sheer size and time required to establish a good tool ecosystem prevent others to join in the viable system solutions.
I wish other well, but see their chances very grim to raise to the level require to present any challenge.
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.
