Speaking IoT In Many Languages

The IoT presents a huge opportunity around the globe.


Let’s face it, Internet of Things (IoT) is a hot topic. Depending on whom you believe, it’s a $300 billion to $19 trillion market opportunity involving 25 billion to 100 billion devices by 2020. These are all huge numbers – they could make Alan Turing himself dizzy. The sheer size of these numbers means good things for the market in general, and for some companies in the tech sector specifically. It’s important to note that every IoT device, from a wearable gadget to a toaster to a smart grid in a large city to the massive data centers keeping track of everything, will ALL have significant semiconductor content. This means lots of new design starts, and that makes the folks at companies like eSilicon smile.

eSilicon sees many opportunities in this emerging, gargantuan market. Prominent among those opportunties is the need for very low-power chips. We did a webinar recently on this topic, focusing on our ultra-low-power and ultra-low-voltage memory solutions. The results were quite interesting. This webinar was, by far, the most popular one we’ve done to date. Signup was quite brisk, and interest came from all over the globe. Here is a profile of the geographies represented by our webinar attendees:

After the event, we posted a replay of the event here. The same thing happened. Here is a view of who watched the replay (dark blue areas):

All this got us thinking about the global nature of the IoT phenomena. So we decided to do something we’ve never done before—present the same material live, but in a few local languages and time zones. It seems that IoT has a good translation in many languages. So here is our lineup of local language webinars. Come join the revolution if you speak one of these languages. Or watch the English replay if you don’t.
