It's really interesting that some of the biggest customers also may be funding ARM competitors. It's also interesting on the effect this customization will have on the shape of Intel going forward, assuming those large customers stay with it -- I'm guessing: smaller margins, perhaps tied to more competitive (read: lower) pricing.
Is that what others see in the crystal ball for Intel?
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.
