@Steve - you must be living under a rock if you have never heard of AWG, and really isn't anything implied by calling it so, other than it is the standard the US. LOL- leave it to the pompus Brits to think yours the "Standard Wire Gauge"!
@Steve: SWG means Standard Wire Gauge which defines the wire's diameter.
As you know, I'm from the UK, so I didn't even think about your reference to SWG in your blog -- but in the past I have run into the fact that no one here in the USA seems to know what it means. Over here, the little scamps use AWG (American Wire Gauge) -- it's so cute when they try to re-invent something and stick the word "American" in front of it as though to imply that their wire gauge is better than anyone elses LOL
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.
