Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the lab
Nothing was stirring, the weather was drab
Peter and Bob sat up late and lamented
That test gear budget cuts should be prevented
When all of a sudden Saint Nick he appeared
At the window and said “Well you both should be cheered!
I’ve brought you for Christmas some Tek MDO’s
And they should get rid of your test gear woes!”
(Sorry, shameless plug, you'll gather I'm a Tektronix fan... :-)
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.
