Abstract: The vast majority of innovative applications in the area of Industrial IOT (IIOT) are enabled by technologies such as: smart sensing, automatic connectivity, secured FW upgrade & booting, smart power management, smart analog sampling as well as additional intelligence for the last mile security. This talk will cover the innovative opportunities in the semiconductor domain to address challenges and requirements in IIOT connected sensor nodes usage scenarios especially for building a last mile security. We will introduce a highly integrated wireless smart sensor node platform and its applications from both HW and SW perspective. Key features related with last mile security and opportunities for further research will be covered through specific use cases.
