The much awaited announcement is out now. Although a bit late, but better late than never. What remains to be seen is how many people will actually transfer to Broadcom given that many are under the notice period. Employment laws in several countries require that employees need to be re-hired. I have a feeling there might still be job losses from RMC's side
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.
