This really doesn't surprise me. With the Internet of Things coming on strong, I suspect that this trend will continue for quite a while.
However, as more things get connected, more things will have computing capability added in. As the computing capability in those devices grows, are the chips still considered communications? Or do they end up being classified as computers?
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.
