Quintic continues to show innovation in the low power wearable sub-sector. Yet, I think this company will be acquired within months with this new product line. Intel, TI and even Qualcomm are my major suspects. As Samsung works to activate the smart watch market with Gear, they will know that only Apple has the magic to wake up a new business like that. As soon as Apple comes in, the demand for these chipsets will be huge. Anyone that gets Quintic will have a great laugh at the end
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.
