Nice to see an industry growing! It should not surprise anyone though, given the widespread proliferation of tablets, smart phones, etc that employ MEMs. I was wondering what was the differentiator for ST vs the rest of the competition? Is it price, performance, volume, particular design wins, does anyone know?
Missing from the article -increase in %market capture of fabless vs. IDM MEMS companies. It seems that the big MEMS are in the IDM camp but encouraging trends like that of InvenSense bodes well for fabless.
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.
