When I saw the photo of the two models looking intently at strange 20th Century devices wrapped around their wrists, I thought it might be more strategic for QuickLogic to target 21st Century applications. What's next, using a disco ball to mount a whole-room scanner?
@betajet: I rarely see a young person wearing a wrist-watch any more.
That's because they use their phones as watches.
I never liked wearing a watch. My wife boiught be one as an engagement gift. I wore it for about a year, then put it away forever. That was long before I had a phone. If you don;t carry a timekeeper, you develop an acute sense of time. Plus, I had a clock in my car and since I was usually driving when time mattered, I had a timekeeper then.
@Sanjib "Wow!! :) This is an excellent "portable" timepiece. ;)"
Are you kidding? It measures voltage and time. It's a projector, a light source, and wilth some modification, it can be a musician's metronome. Just get the trace pulsing as the right time. For that matter, it can be a disco strobe light.
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.
