Yes, that's why EETimes gave it the 2012 Startup of the Year award. They have already sold 60 million units, but kept a low profile by selling only to China and Taiwan. With this latest infusion of capital mCube will try to start landing design wins in the U.S., Europe and whereever smartphones are sold.
What a Design it is! MEMS and ASIC all together in single chip. Reducing the Size and Increasing performance. At the same time it is more precise with 14bit accuracy. Not even that this confirms lower price as compared to presently available bare sensors. Really remarkable indeed.
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.
