It is quite surprising that there is absolutely no mention of products Intersil inherited via Quellan acquisition (http://ubm.io/OHUzEo). Has Intersil written that off?
Reading the article gives me an impression that Intersil is only interested in its core competency of power management. Digital power management that is one of emphasized topics above may be an opportunity but I think Intersil has a lot catchup with other players.
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.
