When so many so-called "tech" stories the media outlets write about are consumer products, their focus has often been the mega-pixel battle among different smartphones. It was truly refreshing to talk to ON Semi about image sensors that go into unlikely places and sensors that can capture images at such high speed.
I hope to know more about the company's image sensor strategy, once it completes the acquisition of Truesense.
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.
