As always the expectation will be of cost effectiveness and the power trendiness, as per the announcement on the Altair website it is said to be ultralow power consuming device. It is nice for those devices who are already using Altair 3800 series for implementing LTE, they will be able to support Category 6 throughputs (up to 300Mbps).
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.
