BUILDING THE IoT: CRITICAL DEVICE-LEVEL TECHNOLOGIES
Analysts agree that the business potential for Internet of Things (IoT) products and services is driving semiconductor evolution faster than any past stage of integrated circuit (IC) manufacturing. According to Business Insider and many other market watchers, internet connected devices will number 34 billion by 2020, up from 10 billion in 2015. ABI Research suggests that the IoT will represent 28 percent of the wireless chip market by 2021.The ultimate IoT trajectory will take growth to unprecedented levels across work, health, leisure, communications and security, prompting many to see IoT technology as the next 'industrial revolution.'
Device, software and peripheral designers envision connecting most major aspects of human existence through data sharing, analysis and remote access far exceeding today’s level of human / machine interface (HMI). Industrial internet applications are already changing the way we produce products and deliver services. Ground-breaking work by industry leaders such as General Electric applies sensing technology, actuators, internet gateways and data analysis to improve product assembly, supply chain, fleet management and navigation. GE foresees the industrial internet growing to inject $10-$20 trillion (USD) into the world’s GDP by 2036. Growth is accelerating, yet many foundational devices have yet to be designed and built.
The "Critical Device-Level Technologies of the IoT" Conference 2017 will foster an in-depth understanding of rapidly changing IoT device-level design requirements, system on a chip (SoC) needs, protocols, networks, security and sensor development. Most importantly, the program will reveal ways that your company and products may be part of the phenomenal IoT opportunity.
Interest in the IoT comes from many different professional groups within overall industry; this includes analysts, product marketers, product developers and researchers as well as the engineers who are directly tied to building physical devices. All concerned with the issues, technologies and device-level products that are serving or hope to serve the growing IoT marketplace.
FIVE KEY INDUSTRY THEMES
The presentations will be grouped into five key themes which collectively provide complete coverage for Building the IoT: Critical Device-Level Technologies.
