anyone from the company would be interested in giving a talk on this topic at CMOS emerging technology sympsoium in Grenoble? preliminary program at www.cmosetr.com, if interested pls contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Indeed - a telling point is that Rob Beat doesn't want to talk about what the cell structure is yet (whether its 4T or 5T is not the best way to talk about it, he says). Patents have been applied for in the UK but are in process for the rest of the world, hence the reluctance. But removing the sense amps give you more room for optimization. An interesting story to watch.
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.
