Dylan,there was an event here in the bay area years ago honoring Mr. Lidow. I missed it unfortunately.
Soon after Alex Lidow was involved with GaN-on-silicon technology, Efficient Power Conversion Corporation (EPC), we invited him to speak at IEEE Power Electronics society:
Is it the End of the Road for Silicon in Power Management? “How Big Things” Happen In America.
This was a great man I can say on reading this article. And what he said about modern teens is 100% true. It bothers me too. Ignoring this issue now may influence our future greatly! backpackers travel insurance
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.
