3 IoT-Based Myths about Analog Electronics
Look to the right of you. Now look to the left. Only 4 percent of current IoT proposals will actually be of use once they come to fruition.The hype surrounding the Internet of Things (IoT) has been nothing short of monumental.
The reality is that, by some estimates, only 4 percent of current IoT proposals will actually be of use once they come to fruition. Despite this disparity, the electronics industry is excited about those few products that will succeed and in turn be profitable.The corollary concept of the IoT and what will make it successful, however, is still deeply rooted in a host of misinformation that has many believing certain design applications are on their way out the door. One such application is analog.A common understanding among many enthusiasts is that everything under the IoT will be dominated by digitally interconnected devices that thrive on both local and group intelligence. For this reason, most believe the future of the IoT will be binary and not analog, and some have even called into question the capabilities of the latter. The fact of the matter is analog is ideally positioned to help accelerate the number of successful IoT devices beyond 4 percent.
