another fab in the sky dream for GF. They are loosing about 30 million a quarter, most of their 8 inch fabs are half or not full. Nobody is buying into the 28nm gate first process. ATIC wants out of this asap, pushing them to go IPO in 2014. So now they are building two fabs worth 12 billion??? Must be the new math.
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.
