CSR is important in IOT, as the article states. But ... if I remember correctly, CSR bought SiRF, that was and / or is the leader of location technology --- including everyone's favorite "next big thing" indoor location.
It takes a great team with a great leader to understand the overall issues of "what's next".
All of this leads into the king of all "immediate futures" with "mobile", including a space I occupy in medical devices.
I love seeing General Instruments Microelectronics doing so well so consistently! And they still have my Pic family front and center! But insanely better!
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.
