Worthless Biased Article.
Almost every "pundit" considered the most important industry trend to be the field their
company HAPPENS to be working in.Surprise, Surprise. So now they can logically claim they are working at the forefront of stuff important for the industry.
While I agree that many are self serving, I was also surprised by some that were not. I made no claim for this to be an independent assessment, rather statements provided by those companies that chose to respond to my call. Please feel free to add your contribution.
Brian, I think that you stated up front more than enough caveats for the article. Thank you for the quick survey I appreciate the insights that were given. While I agree that many were self-serving in their assessments I also feel that the insight was worthwhile thank you again.
There appears to be nothing too innovative that is happening on the design/verification or implementation side other than move to Finfets and sub 20nm geometries. Maybe the electronics world can still survive on the technology available for couple of more years before it starts getting pinched.
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.
