Its a good move by Sandisk. It will make it more strong. Sometimes acquisitions are also for killing the competition. How are they handling the human resource of Fusion-io. Its always difficult for the people but in this cut throat competitive world there is absolutely no other choice. Actually its very good for the customers of both the companies.
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.
