It is good to see NXP is now more focus and wont' waste energy in non-core technologies. NFC is a good example that NXP has made use of its strength and be able to keep competitions out. Automotive bus interface is also a good business for NXP and they're doing very well. Hope one day when people talk about NXP, they can immediately say "Oh NXP, the leader in bababa....." rather than say "Oh NXP, the supermarket of semiconductor and you can buy all kind of junk out there!"
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.
