In mid-2013, the buzzwords The Internet of Things, also known as the IoT, set the technology world on fire. As a result of this craze, a lot of products that were developed for completely different end applications changed all their marketing collateral overnight to become IoT products. We saw companies that added the acronym IoT to the title of every executive, and gadgets that became a part of an IoT enablement ecosystem.


There is a growing trend, in todays factories, to use innovations like smart objects, autonomous production, and access to the cloud support customization on a large scale and manufacture products in close to real time. This trend, which is seen to be part of the fourth industrial revolution, or Industry 4.0, is acceelerated by the use of wireless technologies.


The Internet of Things (IoT) has become a wildly popular term these days often used to describe a world in which virtually every electronic device connects to the Internet and each other. It comprises a staggering list of applicationseverything from smart consumer appliances and vehicles to wearablesand that list will only grow as mobility continues to explode.


Every new access point on an electronic device multiplies the risk of damage by forming electrical paths for the high potential currents into the device itself. The survival of these sensitive electronics depends on comprehensive circuit protection.


Increasingly, plants are replacing proprietary protocols with integrated communication protocols using Transmission Control Protocol/ Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and Ethernet network structures to link plant floor productivity to business intelligence.


Cypress Semiconductor introduced a Bluetooth Smart module that is the markets first Bluetooth Low Energy solution to integrate programmable analog and digital blocks in a fully-certified module. The new, small-form-factor EZ-BLE PSoC module includes Bluetooth 4.1 qualification and worldwide regulatory certification, greatly simplifying design and decreasing time-to-market.


John Daane, the president, CEO and chairman of Altera, believes that the highly flexible FPGA and SoC products with a strong parallel processing capability can improve throughput, shorten response time and improve energy efficiency. They can not only support data analysis and accelerate control functions, but also bridge all kinds of wired and wireless interface standards in IoT to meet the key demands of the emerging Internet of Things applications.


Internet of Things (IoT) will significantly increase the quantity and type of devices that will be interconnected and gives rise to new opportunities to manage data collection and analytics (Big Data).


IoT is a new burgeoning field combining sensing, embedded computing, and communication technologies, however the easiest way to describe it is the interconnect control of sensors/actuators via a smart phone/tablet.. Yageo has a broad portfolio of passive components to cover all present and future requirements.


As businesses look to unleash the power of the Internet of Things (IoT), demand grows for secure solutions that bring devices online faster and extract more value from data. Discover how the scalability, interoperability, and performance of Intel


Artesyn Embedded Technologies announced the Config Pro online power supply configurator to help customers to find the optimal solution from the three million plus combinations enabled by its range of configurable power supplies. The Config pro tool will make it easier for industrial and medical equipment designers to specify and use configurable power supplies and can, in many cases, eliminate the need for expensive custom solutions.


Texas Instruments announced its SimpleLink Wi-Fi wireless microcontroller (MCU) easily and securely connects IoT endpoints to the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud for remote management and data analysis. The AWS IoT Software Development Kit (SDK) is now available for TIs low-power SimpleLink Wi-Fi CC3200 wireless MCU LaunchPad kit, enabling developers to quickly establish a connection to AWS IoT services and immediately begin development on their IoT designs.


Successful products must meet competing requirements including low power consumption, long wireless connectivity ranges and higher processing power. This paper explores how ARM


The Internet of Things (IoT) promises a future that networks billions of smart, connected devices. This white paper provides an overview of how the IoT ecosystem is developing. It also highlights the IoT-enabling technologies that Bourns provides for circuit protection, circuit conditioning and motion control to help ensure high reliability in the essential link between networked devices and the decision maker.


The smart city ecosystem, with its new wave of innovative applications, is emerging as a key strategy for a more efficient and sustainable society. Smart cities make use of technologies such as smart public lighting, smart power and gas metering, smart sensor nodes, smart buildings, smart parking, e-mobility and smart garbage. STMicroelectronics is well positioned to address this market thanks to its state-of-the-art technologies and wide range of products, combined with a deep understanding of the building blocks of utility ecosystems.


Kinetis microcontrollers (MCUs) consist of multiple hardware- and software-compatible ARM Cortex-M0+ and M4-based MCU series with an exciting new roadmap planned to include the new Cortex-M7 core. With a portfolio of almost 1,000 MCUsthe broadest ARM-based MCU portfolio available todayKinetis MCUs offer exceptional low-power performance, scalability and feature integration with a choice of general purpose or application-specific features.
