Surely most of the companies are driven by a single person with a vision. On the other hand there is few conglomerates, have become people independent but any time it needs right people to take care.

We already have a generation of engineers who think HP has alweays been a computer company and Agilent has always been the test and measurement company. Now we'll have a generation of enginers who will think the company to be named later will have always been there making test equipment.

Some time ago I did an article in praise of HP test equipment here

http://www.eetimes.com/author.asp?section_id=28&doc_id=1285836

Contains one notable inaccuracy (my bad for not researching properly) but judging by the comments a lot of people feel this way about HP test gear, and the HP name.  I guess the company is going in new directions now but for a time without Bill and Dave at the helm they lost their way a bit.  One can see similar things with Apple and Steve Jobs.  All these guys were a rare breed who had one thing - Vision - that has been lacking in some of their successors.

>HP test equipment, and then laser printers

I have an HP 34401A DMM that's 21+ years old, and an HP LaserJet 4P that's 19 years old. The printer is going to outlast the supply of toner, which you can't get from HP anymore. There are third parties that still sell it. I just bought three HP toner cartridges.

There are plenty of test instruments still us use with the HP name on them.

@David Ashton, hear, hear!

I think many of us have soft spots for what used to be was HP. And of course, we always want good guys to win!

@Junko - that was my main point - HP test equipment, and then laser printers - were legendary.  I'd have kept the HP name for the Test equipment, and renamed the PC line.     And I'd have leveraged off the name... "xxxxx - a division of HP".  

But the bean counters always have other ideas.  But I do hope that the new vernture succeeds - knowing the roots in Bill & Dave's garage, it would be nice to see HP - or what it's become -  regain its former glory.

@David Ashton, I totally agree your point here. Why a storied division of T&M fame needs to get renamed so many times?

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. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
