I was a young associate engineer when EE Times first came out. Over the years it provided me many useful ideas and always provided a load of information which eventually led to other useful ideas.
So I congratulate everyone who helped keep EE Times alive over the years.
Thank you EREBUS. I had the same experience, except I tried out for a technical editor's job there once, then went on to other pubs and came back to this bellwether. Things have changed over 40 years in both our professions, but the connection continues.
First at all; EE Times Congratulations!!! I recall reading this magazine since I was a fresh man asking to the Gods to run the time faster in order to finish my career; Now looking back I recall reading a lot of state-of-art discovers on Engineering that any kid now see it like they always has been here. My only disagreement with you guys is: a 40th Anniversary app only for Apple???? Do you forget that We're are Engineers??? We don't usually expend on fancy items!!! and as Engineers We mostly carry android devices where you can own/make a lot stuff instead of use a nice and fancy tablet. Sorry apple followers but the difference between marketing and Engineering is the use of the items; So speaking by a lot of Engineers, would you please to take it in mind and release something for Engineers using Android devices??? Beside that, keep going and let's celebrate another 40's!!!. Congrats to the whole team.
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.
