ADI: Industrial Internet of Things is ADI's focus on the market


Introduction: The Internet of Things can transform any object into an information source related to the object. In the industrial field, the Internet of Things redefines value for products and services. Industrial IoT can be considered as a brand-new "value chain", which greatly reduces the cost of equipment individual calculations and data storage.

The Internet of Things can transform any object into a source of information about the object. In the industrial field, the Internet of Things redefines the value of products and services. Industrial IoT can be considered as a brand-new "value chain", which greatly reduces the cost of equipment individual calculations and data storage. The Marketsand Markets report pointed out that the industrial Internet of Things market is expected to climb from $11.371 billion in 2015 to $19.547 billion by 2022. To make full use of the potential of IOT can not be separated from the help of sensors, the devices in the system must have sensing and networking capabilities, and then be distinguished from the traditional automation, and truly realize the transformation and development of industrial informatization and networking.

Lu Lei, senior manager of ADI's industry market, said in an interview with non-network reporters that the Industrial Internet of Things is a market that ADI is focusing on. Add a variety of sensors in the factory or industrial applications, combined with big data, can achieve the monitoring and health management of equipment. Simply put, the Internet of Things can replace traditional manual inspections and other mechanisms to perform real-time monitoring and predict the future failure of the machine, reduce the failure rate and increase production efficiency. In addition to the new factory that can build IoT factories, due to the slower upgrading of industrial products, many old plants and equipment have the need for network monitoring before they are replaced. Therefore, how to help customers to transform the existing equipment to realize the Internet of Things is an important issue.

ADI's MEMS sensors, including accelerometers, gyroscopes, and IMUs, are widely used in various industrial applications such as robots, aircraft, tilt detection, item tracking, etc., and are also well-suited for use in machine health testing. All these applications require high performance and reliability. ADI's MEMS products have far exceeded consumer-grade MEMS products in terms of bias stability, temperature reset characteristics, long-term stability, and vibration conditions, and are therefore favored by many industrial customers.

For the recent hot 3D sensor boom in the smart phone industry, Lu Lei also gave some of his own views. He pointed out that there are many sensors available for IoT. In addition to the MEMS sensors mentioned above, ADI has a wide range of products that can implement a wide variety of sensor technologies. In 2018 we will introduce new products for different sensors, such as: visual sensors for people counting, for gas Sensor chip, analog front end chip for 3D sensors, etc. ADI has already laid out a 3D sensor. 3D sensors have a wide range of application scenarios both in consumer applications such as mobile phones and in industrial automation and internet of things applications. The current 3D sensor based on ADI products is the industry's highest resolution product. Everyone will soon see the market for 3D sensors using ADI's products.

The automotive industry is a huge area for the application of sensors. Whether it is the production line of a car maker or an intelligent networked car, sensors can be said to be ubiquitous. Lu Lei believes that sensor fusion is an inevitable trend for applications such as autopilot and navigation. Because of the current situation, any one sensor has its limitations and it cannot provide good results under certain operating conditions. ADI is also very aware of this trend and has been doing its job. Specifically, we combine ADI's MEMS products to provide customers with appropriate sensor fusion solutions, and already have sensor fusion MEMS products sold in bulk. For example, ADI's high-end IMUADIS16480 integrates MEMS sensors and Kalman's digital filter algorithms, and utilizes sensor fusion technology that makes it ideal for industrial, autonomous driving, and aerospace applications. In addition, ADI is developing products for 77GHz radar and laser radar.
