1 month ago, EE-Times publishes a contrasting report:
" TSMC sales fall steeply, as predicted "
Almost every article and opinion is nonsense. Are there any good alternatives too EE Times?
@supersonic I don't understand your complaint. December sales were lower than November and January sales went back up. TSMC predicted a decrease in their Q4 sales months earlier, hence the bit about the prediction.
"2 articles on TSMC that imply or suggest problems or booms in trade based on very short term / macro revenue figures."
Maybe this was not implied. For eg, in the last article Peter says annual sales were good. A
I think juicy titles are given without real meaning. There is no relevance in marginal differences of revenue from December to January.
Frustration derives from that most articles on EE times do this. Perhaps deliberate to entice opinion and reaction?
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.
