lazy designers? it is easy to take shots at Intel designers when you aren't one of them. in fact that is probably human nature -to disparage others rather than consider them as equals. certainly as a designer you are much much better than anyone who works at Intel. designed anything on 10nm recently?
Hennessy hasn't made any contributions to the field in the last 20 years nor has he kept current with the latest trends in microrachitecture, circuits and process technology.
As a University president, Hennessy is twice the salesman that Otellini is.
Dirk Meyer would be a very good choice as an external candidate. Or Bob Colwell.
Intel's main problem is ethnic, national and racial balkanization. Too many cliques premised not on technical interests but ethnic or national interests.
This is results in the promotion of unqualified candidates to positions of technical leadership and since this "leadership" can't debate the technical merits of its decisions it becomes authoritarian and reactionary.
Joining Intel at the top from outside is the ultimate sign of having low intelligence.
Share holders of a Stalinist organization needs to find a new Stalin in Lavrentiy Beria, not a Gorby. Otherwise, your 401K goes the way of Berlin Wall.
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.
