Every OEM does it a little differently, but the license files contain descriptions and related attributes of the software and hardware feature entitlements that you own. These used to be dedicated to a given tester, but now they can reside on a license server and be allocated to a network of testers as needed. Third-party software license management tools are used to manage license delivery, activation, and renewal. These licenses are critical in determining the capability of your test capacity, and can have significant value.
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.
