Qualcomm's Snapdragon 410 will pack a multimode LTE baseband, good to see the family growing! I wonder how the performance will be improved with the new features. Will video be more accessable on the new phones? Not that I use the phone for more than email, web page checking, texting and oh yeah phone calls. It is nice to see new features, one thing that I really would be excited about is better signals in the places I live and travel to.
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.
