In my opinion it's time for ST to come back to the original company mission: technology innovation. I do not see any vision in Bozzoti's speeches. The management is playing with creative finance: breakups and carve outs. Time is up: next wrong step and ST will follow Nokia in its decline.
After the acquisition of NXP wireless and Ericsson mobile units, they do no know how to manage them. It shall be interesting to see if Samsung is interested to buy this money losing unit, some additional cuts will occur.
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.
