I like the direction that Microchip is taking with adding more wireless options. I would love to try the MiWi wireless system (just like the name) and wonder what the latency and if there are multiple channels possible. I can see now that I will need to go look it up on Microchip's website. Does anyone have experience using the MiWi?
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.
