@Max: Good to learn that one integrated platform of tools will take care of the PCB design-to-manufacturing process flow. One question I had is would it also do the job of component lifecycle management? When ever a component is declared to be moved to EOL by its manufacturer, does Valor tool have a feature that would notify the engineering team about EOL status? Sometimes an NPI cycle of a complex board takes 12-16 months. By the time the design is completed and moved to manufacturing, it is found that there are some EOL notices for some components from the manufacturer (especially memory parts).
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. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
