I find the purchase interesting in that it is in the wireless arena, but I was wondering how this fits into the bigger picture. What is the intel on Unigroup and their product line? I was wondering how this acquisition fits into their product offerings or plans. Does anyone have the background on the company to add?
I am surprised to see that Spreadtrum has quite a good profit margin. Was thinking they are running on super thin margins by driving the costs downhill. Seems like there's not much competition at the low end these days.
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.
