Thanks for the coverage Brian! Just dropping by to let you know we just launched a new website, so some of the old links are broken. The new link for the report is: http://semico.com/content/mobile-healthcare-new-technology-healthy-lifestyle
In a medical implantable device, the battery is sensitive to peak current demands of the electronics, as noted in two recent industry articles (one co-authored by Energizer and an app note from TI). You can obtain about 50% increased battery life by reducing repetitive peak current demands. Here is a technology that helps reduce IC peak current, InnovaClockControl, http://www.innovaclockcontrol.com/low_power_vlsi_design.html
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. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
