IoT—— Enhance the ubiquitous interconnections



The field of internet of things (IoT) combines technologies, such as sensors, devices, networks, and cloud computing, to achieve intelligent management through interconnection between devices, which improves operation productivity, cost reduction, and resource utilization. Common IoT technology applications involve smart homes, smart transportation, smart factories, smart cities and others, and have bright market prospects. Wide-area IoT includes technical standards such as NB-IoT, LoRA, and Sigfox. The difference is that NB-IoT uses officially licensed spectrum and has high data confidentiality, while the rest uses unlicensed public spectrum and has flexible applications with lower costs. To realize an intelligent world where everything is interconnected, networks need to connect people and people, people and things, and things and things. Currently, there are about 20 billion things connected in the world. In the 5G era, three types of technologies, NB-IoT, RedCap, and passive IoT, will rely on the deployment scale of mobile networks to support the future hundreds of billions of IoT.

Common types of IoT terminal devices include sensors (temperature, humidity, light...), actuators (lights, curtains, speakers...), home instruments (door locks, security cameras...), medical equipment (heart rate monitoring, Glucose meters...), industrial equipment (robotic arms, robots...), etc.. IoT devices usually integrate general functional modules, such as data processing and data communication modules. At the same time, IoT needs to ensure data security, sensing and driving, connection, signal and power integrity, etc. In addition, the demands for small size, low cost, low power consumption and high reliability must also be considered, which make the design of IoT smart devices face big challenges.



In response to challenges such as signal integrity, power integrity, and radio frequency system optimization encountered in the design of IoT products, Xpeedic provides one-stop EDA solutions to assist the development of IoT chips and modules through the EDA design and simulation platform.
