Secure processors matter in IoT applications
Secure processors matter in IoT applications

The advent of the Internet of Things is shifting the IT security paradigm from predominantly software-centric solutions to a trusted execution environment based on dedicated chips. The diverse world of Internet of Things products spans from self-driving cars to kitchen appliances to garage door openers, so the exponential rise in the number of network access points makes it hard to manage security through software alone.

The beginnings of innovation in the “new” embedded
The beginnings of innovation in the “new” embedded

Events like Computex 2016 always remind me just how wide the scope of embedded is today. In fact, I now genuinely believe that our industry can no longer be described as niche — we’ve finally become mainstream.

Perform your analytics at the edge

Executive Outlook

2016 Top Embedded Innovator: Tyson Tuttle, CEO, Silicon Labs

Silicon Labs began its evolution towards the Internet of Things in 2010, at which time Tyson Tuttle, who started with the company as a design engineer, was CTO. Since taking over as CEO in 2012, Tuttle has grown that early Internet of Things investment into half of Silicon Labs’ nearly $650 million annual revenue, and has his sights set on increasing it by driving simplicity (ironically, through software) deeper into the Internet of Things marketplace.
