Our New Space For Innovation And Collaboration


Today is an exciting day at our Austin headquarters: this morning we officially opened our Industrial IoT (Internet of Things) Lab! You can watch the ribbon cutting ceremony on our Facebook page. Our Industrial IoT Lab is a hub of intelligent systems that bridge operational technology (OT) with information technology (IT) and the companies working on them. We’ve purposefully design... » read more

2017: Manufacturing And Markets


While the industry is busy chatting about the end of Moore's Law and a maturing of the semiconductor industry, the top minds of many companies are having none of it. A slowdown in one area is just an opportunity, in another and that is reflected in the predictions for this year. As in previous years, Semiconductor Engineering will look back on these predictions at the end of the year to see ... » read more

Smart Manufacturing Gains Momentum


Smart manufacturing is gaining traction as a way of addressing increased market fragmentation while still leveraging economies of scale. The goal is to add a level of flexibility into manufacturing processes that until recently was considered impossible. Although the approach makes sense in theory, real-world implementation is proving far from consistent. Sometimes referred to as Industr... » read more

The Week In Review: IoT


Security The Internet of Things was in the news this week, and not for good reasons. Unsecured IoT devices were implicated in the substantial distributed denial-of-service attack that severely affected popular websites on October 21. Well ahead of this event, ARM Holdings was planning to make IoT security its leading theme at this week’s ARM TechCon 2016 conference and exposition in Santa Cl... » read more

Mentor Graphics, Raima, and Datalight have collaborated to define and measure data management for IIoT edge devices. This paper examines the benefits that come from optimizing the software components of the data storage stack in terms of performance, reliability and device lifetime. According to Accenture, the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) will help companies boost revenues by increas... » read more

Industrial Electronics Gain Greater Manufacturing Flexibility With Embedded Memory


While IoT continues to capture the semiconductor industry’s collective imagination, not to be overlooked is the industrial electronics market. Just consider the wide swath industrial electronics cuts. It could be anything related to electrical equipment in an industrial setting, and includes everything from control systems, instrumentation, mechanicals and diagnostics to signal processing and... » read more

3 Key IoT Benchmarks


The [getkc id="76" comment="Internet of Things"] has been billed as the next huge opportunity for semiconductors—tens of billions of things connected to a centralized infrastructure, to people, and in many cases to each other. After conducting hundreds of interviews with executives, engineers and university professors from all facets of the global supply chain over the past year and reviewin... » read more
