Overview:

Over the last few decades the semiconductor industry has evolved from an emerging technology to one that enables new technologies. The industry’s evolution in some sense parallels the changes in computers, smart phones, tablets and the Internet. Just as the first two waves of the Internet era led to rearrange the technology landscape, the Internet of Things will tilt the direction of technology development and adoption. As one of the leading enablers of technological progress, the semiconductor Industry will serve as a driver, enabler and indicator of growth in the interconnectedness of things.

Market Segments:

The IoT ecosystem involving a vast and complex number of data gathering and data processing devices, will impact a very broad range of market segments, including but not limited to the following:

  • Industrial (Manufacturing control, smart metering, equipment wear-out sensing, climate control)
  • Health Care & Medical (implanted and wearable devices, remote patient monitoring [Telehealth])
  • Automotive (parking and traffic flow, smart key entry, location, anti-theft)
  • Consumer (smart home control including lighting, security and comfort, product ordering, energy use optimization, home maintenance)
  • Retail (tracking, inventory, focused marketing)
  • Environmental (endangered species tracking, weather prediction, resource management)

Open-Silicon is focussed on developing custom semiconductors for the following IoT verticals:

IoT System:

internet-of-things

A ‘Thing’ in the IoT context is a secure, remotely manageable asset connected to the cloud and has the following features:

  • Sensor & Actuators
  • Processing & Storage – In some cases, run analytics and apps
  • Communication (wired or wireless) to stream data and receive commands

A device with above components is also referred to as Sensor Hub.
