The article states that the chips operate "while consuming 1.1V". That sounds like a voltage and not a power (watts) value. I suspect the intended point was that the chips operate on a voltage as low as 1.1 volts (nice for mobile) and that the (unreported) power consumption was minimal. [Another - undesirable - possibility would be that the chips deplete and destroy a 1.1 volt battery.]
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. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
