Is it just me, or does it seem like there is a renewed emphasis on real risk-taking and innovation in the PC architecture space? I could make a case that the recent downturn has shaken the complacency of some companies in the space. I can only hope that Microsoft is among them and finds a way out of the Win 8 malaise.
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.
