Looks like Samsung Foundry business nearly doubled in 2012. This can't all be due to Apple. Are we sure these figures do not include Samsung's own chips ( e,g the Exynos ) ? Does Samsung have any 32 nm ( or maybe even 28 nm ) logic Fabs other than the one in Austin ?
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.
