Good to see that the market demand for the UPS products to provide uninterrupted power to the datacenters for "mission critical applications" would have a good growth. As the cloud computing is adopted by the healthcare, infrastructure verticals and there would be an increasing trend of dependency on cloud servers in the other verticals in the industry soon, I expect to see even a better growth rate of UPS for "mission critical" datacenters. Acually I expected that the growth rate of the UPS for datacenters would more or less follow the growth rate of the datacenters, which might be in double digit number.
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.
