Avnet Silica has the perfect supplier offering to enable you to put your product development into the Internet of Things.
Whereas Machine-to-Machine (M2M) was limited to simple single closed processes, the Internet of Things (IoT) is all about physical objects, devices, machines connected to remote computers via the Internet so that complex processes, interactions, automations of all sorts can be established across use cases and verticals. More generally, with the standardization of protocols and data models, each physical object, device or machine is expected to interact with our lives across several applications and services. For instance, a proximity sensor can feed useful data into an access control application, but also into a lighting energy saving application, an alarm system application, etc.
Although we are only at the beginning of this new era, several sensor, processing and connectivity technologies are expected to drive the market in multiple application segments including Industry and Logistics, Healthcare, Automotive and Building Automation.
Avnet Silica has the perfect supplier offering to enable you to put your product development into the Internet of Things. Fitting out objects with Sensors, MCUs and Communication Modules then interlinking them over the internet creates endless possibilities for making life easier.
Critical semiconductor capabilities in IoT include sensors, wireless/wired connectivity, analog, power management and ultra low power MCU. Avnet Silica can offer multiple solutions covering all of these capabilities. In combination with the knowledge of our technical team we can support you to build competitive products to address the high growth market.
