It actually makes a fair amount of sense that a chip design company could benefit from the end of the era of packing as many transistors as possible onto the chip, given that that necessarily means more innovation in other areas are chip design. Of course, he has an interest in saying that Broadcomm is going to come out on top of the situation regardless.
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.
