IBM has been working long and hard to define the next generation of semiconductors--such as carbon based nanotube- and graphene-transistors. Nanowires made from III-V materials like GaAs, InGaAs and InAs however, may turn out to be easier to integrate into the CMOS design flow than carbon-based materials. What do you think?
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.
