To take measurements; it would depend on the customer's research needs; use an oscilloscope for time domain signaling or optical modulation analyzer for frequency or I&Q signaling to calibrate expected performance from the AWG; then; if it's an active device; compare expected response from the calibrated source to the device's output. If it's a passive device; send the calibrated source through the device and evaluate against the source itself.
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.
