It is something we have speculated upon in the past.
But right now Intel is going to be short a CEO as of May and East does not become free until July 1.
East would appear to have all the right credentials. But he did tell us in a conference call that he would like to do a bit less traveling and that he would be interested in doing something "complementary to ARM" and perhaps in the U.K.
We shall see
I like Warren a lot. Not met him personally, but he talks good in his interviews which i had seen in youtube. I think it is a bit early to go down considering the situation that ARM is now on top of the world and growing.
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.
