Yeah I want to see the Jobs movie too, but I doubt my wife will want to see it, she's more into crafty stuff. Soldering DIP's reminds me of my first Z80 based computer, a Sinclair knock-off. I upgraded the RAM to 2k by piggy-backing an additional 1k. What a lot of RAM that was back then.
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.
