The market is shifting from hype about the Internet of Things to implementation and tackling concerns about security.
The technology for the IoT has always been akey element,and the prospect of low power magnetic MRAM memory has definitely caught the imagination of developers, leading the way for the top stories last month. Security also plays a much stronger role, from the node to the network. Artificial intelligence moving to the IoT node is also an interesting trend, but the Renesas takeover of Intersil highlights the many other areas of embedded design that are important. With a potential Qualcomm/NXP/Freescale deal in the wings, the battle to dominate the market for silicon in embedded designs continues.
