Interesting to see that Hynix has taken flight after coming under the wing of SK. Likely it has a lot to do with a general uptick in pricing for DRAM, which has been going steady for several months (see DRAM Prices Improving Rapidly). Hynix and the other memory chip vendors better enjoy it while it lasts, because we all know how these things go.
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.
