AMD havent even taken a shot at the mobile market! Their current strategy is to reduce the cost anyhow..layoff people, ditch fab.. will work for a while, But without new products I am not sure If AMD can survive for long..
I always liked AMD so I wish them well. I am looking forward to being able to buy their embedded/low power products, similarly to how one can buy a SoC-based ARM solution or an Intel Atom and VIA motherboard. I wonder if they'll make boards themselves or have someone else do it, especially considering that Intel just announced that they'll stop making boards.
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.
