5 ways IOT and PCB Manufacture are working together

IOT and PCB Manufacture

What is the Internet of Things (IOT)?

This article discusses the 5 ways IOT and PCB Manufacture are working together, but what is the internet of things?

Every day we are seeing more technical capabilities appearing in the home as another device ‘learns’ to do something to take the load off our busy 21st century selves. Things that have the ability to interpret what we are asking of them, understand what it means, and then connect with other devices to respond appropriately. All hail the era of artificial intelligence.

The Internet of Things is made up of devices connected to the web, each feeding information back, or capturing information and using it in some way, allowing us to talk to them remotely, and them to react to us. According to Deloitte’s Tech Trends 2015 report, Gartner estimated that by 2020, there will be more than 26 billion devices connected to the internet.

IBM have been supporting Wimbledon to create tennis rackets that have thousands of information points to gather every last detail about a player’s swing to be analysed later, and Amazon have this week launched the new Alexa ‘skill’ which enables a central speaker in your kitchen to use the internet to make phone calls at your voice command. These are all the Internet of Things. But what does this mean for IOT and PCB Manufacture?

5 ways IOT and PCB Manufacture are working together

1. The Internet of Things is driving demand for smaller PCBs that can be incorporated in the handle of a tennis racket, or even your running watch, meaning printed circuit board space is now under more pressure than ever.
