But I would also like to point out that while many of us tend to think all those WiFi IPs are dime a dozen, the fact that RivieraWaves was the first in the market to offer Wi-Fi 802.11ac IP for smartphones and tablets might tell something about the entineering team.
Further for other wireless connectivity technologies in development at RivieraWaves, Ceva CEO mentioned during the intervew: 802.11ah, 802.11p and newer versions of Bluetooth.
25 licensees in 4 years? Ha. Ha. Ha again say I. Its a count of IP licensing deals from before even RW was invented. And no, there is no big market for such IPs. And umm... annual licensing revenue of $22-24 million IS chump change.
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.
