A friend that has been through a patent dispute tell me filing for a patent is just an invitation to spend a half-million in Federal court. He just keeps trade secrets now and moves faster than his competition.
Here's the pseudo-code for patent
infringement transactions for semi industry.
If(Somebody sue you)
publicly deny infringement;
If (you have similar patents)
Counter sue the guy;
Buy similar patents from Trolls
And counter sue the guy;
Wait (until the guy turn up for negotiations)
Settle out of court. & kickout the lawyers.
Hug each other & do cross licensing deal
If(person suing=(university+ a crazy jury ard)
throw and few $$ for univ research grant
run for life;
get ready with 1.2B$ for 2 silly patents.
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.
