Thank you for jogging the memories, Martin. The other day I was trying to remember that period and who acquired whom... my product, WireScope, ended up under HP in 1998, soon to become Agilent, and our competitor, Fluke, is now under Borg. What's next?
@fanny, I get the impression you clicked "Start a Board" instead of "post message" as your comment has ended up on its own thread. "Post Message" posts a comment on the blog, and "reply" posts a reply to comeone else's comment. I've never seen any use for the "start a board" link, it seems to be mainly used by spammers.... present company excepted of course :-)
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.
