Basics, yes but I was hoping for something just a bit ahead of physics 101; how does the base board contact the heat sink; types of thermal compound vs insulating washers; variable speed fans; liquid cooling, etc. Maybe next article.
Thanks for the feedback. This is a new series so we were trying to judge the right level and wanted it to be accessible for all. Feedback is appreciated and we will keep this in mind for the next Back to Basics article. It's a quarterly series and the next one should appear in a few months time.
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.
