How about Dadi, I use to work under him. He is a man who could turn things around... need to look at the entire cellphone in holistic manner (platform...). someone needs to make a difference rather than saying moore law in ever IDF (do not take me worng I have high respect for Gordon Moore).
I hear this is a results of Intel's mobile designs (Atom) are not competitive with the latest Cortex A15 (Snapdragon S4, A6X, Samsung Exynos and soon Nvidia Tegra 4). Asia OEMs have seen Atom 32 and 22nm roadmap and it is very uncompetitive. Intel sales team was saying it results from poor Power/Performance/Area metrics of Intel 22nm node. Now we are hearing Intel 14nm not going well and mobile parts pushed to 2H/14.
This is why Intel needs new leadership. Head hunter search by Intel is looking for someone from outside with mobile phone experience.
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.
