Naturally the Internet of Things runs as a theme through the top stories through the year. But we started in January with a standard for high speed SD cards that can be used for embedded storage. And this push into embedded is driving significant growth in microcontrollers - we know this, but its good to have the numbers
New tools for crypto and GUI development were if distinct interest, but we also saw significant interest from some applications, particularly a solar powered autonomous camera and a sprayable antenna that can be easily deployed for wireless IoT nodes.
AI is also a strong theme, as MIPS and Wave Computing drive chips and Tuya and Microsoft drive services, while Infineon's backing of FreeRTOS will boost the use of the open source real time operating system.
