But what's not to like about it?
They can help SMIC do a better job and, under the pressure of GloFo, Samsung and Intel joining the foundry ranks, SMIC needs some help.
And is not more a case of Sean Maloney, having retired from Intel, just looking for something to maintain his interest and fit in between his retirement hobbies.
Not altogether sure I like the sound of this... when you combine Maloney and Tan, they add up to a ton of influence with, and insight into, how cutting-edge designs go together.
Very smart long-term strategery! (another way of saying the US is allowing the export (or co-opting) of more shortcuts to advanced technology.)
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.
