It was a surprise to me that so much of transistor performance improvement can be attributed directly to improvements in materials. Another example of how chip makers are going to enormous length to squeeze out every drop of performance.
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.
