I agree Daleste. While the same may have slowed from June, a one-month change isn't really reflective of y-o-y growth. Still there are forecasts from the industry's sales to fall by 40-50% by a year from now. I'm not seeing the foundation of those forecasts with reports like this.
This really isn't much of a surprise. As previously reported by EET's Peter Clarke, TSMC announced last month that "third-quarter sales are set to be up between 3.3 and 5.2 percent from Q2." So month one was down from June. I suspect we'll see slightly stronger numbers for August and September
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.
