Always the same information is missing. Market shares given
-- revenues or units
-- BBs - standalone BBs or also BBs integrated with application processors -- and this could also be silicon integrated and/or co-packaged in a multi-chip package
Also feature phone BBs and smartphone BBs are world appart -- apples and oranges in unit prices and features/complexity
Strategy Analytics should of course be able to make profit selling its services. But there should also be a minimum clarity requirement from EETimes. Otherwise this is just noise and waste of time for your readers -- no information. One person opinion.
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.
