I am really excited about tomorrows chat. I have been an analog engineer for 42 years and have seen the "evolution" of the analog designer morph into something quite different than the 60s pioneers or the 70s designers (me). It will be fun and interesting to hear the other engineer's inputs and experiences on this controversial topic.
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.
