For these surveys of common topics. Sometimes I miss one and having a collection like this allows me to double check. Wish we had more of these. Maybe a monthly 'best of' would be useful in all the topic areas...
Would like to hear if folks are at all worried about the newly discovered "Row Hammer" failures. Here are two links. http://www.futureplus.com/images/FS2800/The%20Known%20Failure%20Mechanism%20in%20DDR3%20memory%20called%20Row%20Hammer.pdf
and an excellent study by CMU https://www.ece.cmu.edu/~safari/pubs/kim-isca14.pdf
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.
