Newark Opens Third Annual Global IoT Survey

The survey is open from September 15 to December 1, 2020 and respondents can enter a competition to win an iPad Pro and Amazon Gift Cards.

Chicago – September 15, 2020: Newark, the Development Distributor, has launched its third annual Global IoT Survey. The survey provides an opportunity for Internet of Things (IoT) and Industrial IoT product designers and system engineers to share insights about the market while helping shape the product range and technical resources offered by Newark to support this diverse and evolving technology.

The survey is open from September 15 to December 1, 2020 with results to be announced in spring 2021. All participants in the survey can also enter a competition to win:

  • An iPad Pro 11-inch
  • Around $300 in Amazon gift cards
  • Around $60 in Amazon gift cards

The Newark 2020 Global IoT survey is open to engineers working on IoT solutions. This year’s questions have been enhanced for a truly deep dive into the IoT industry and responses will provide greater insight into the technologies, challenges, and opportunities designers of IoT solutions face. The results will show how the IoT industry is changing year-over-year, revealing the full range of potential applications and market trends and how the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the design process is growing. Understanding the impact COVID-19 has on IoT developments is also a key focus.

Key results from the 2019 survey showed the growing role of hardware in the design process for IoT solutions. Design engineers indicated that they use a wide range of off the shelf hardware platforms to accelerate the speed of development and shorten time to the market. Fifty-four percent of developers confirmed they are now using single board computers, from brands such as Raspberry Pi or Arduino, as they provide ready-to-use embedded development platforms for building end-products. Almost half of respondents said they used AI in their design in 2019. Interoperability and certification to standards continued to be identified as key to accelerating the benefits of IoT in both the 2018 and 2019 surveys.

Newark’s research also suggests that opportunities within the IoT will continue to grow over the next five years with key application areas expected to include home automation, industrial automation and control, smart factories and smart buildings.

“IoT continues to be one of the most prominent global technology trends, and opportunities are growing exponentially in our rapidly changing market,” said Cliff Ortmeyer, Global Head of Technical Marketing for Newark. “The results from our annual global survey will provide engineers working in IoT with greater insight into the technology solutions currently available in the market and support efficient decision-making when identifying new systems and overcoming common issues. The responses will also help shape the product range and technical resources offered by Newark to enable us to provide increased support to our customers. Our annual survey gives engineers from around the world a chance to highlight the trends they see in the IoT space as well as the challenges they face and the solutions they seek.”

Newark provides access to an extensive range of development tools for IoT and works with innovative providers to bring the latest for AI and security. Customers can find support and design resources including the IoT Hub, AI pages and an AI configurator on the Newark website. Fast delivery is available on all major development boards for IoT including Raspberry Pi 4 Model B Computer, Avnet SmartEdge IIoT Gateway, Microsoft Azure Sphere Starter Kit, BeagleBone AI and Ultra96 V2.

Mindi Analog Simulator

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Microchip

It’s easy to go wrong in the analog portion of your design, particularly if you’re not an analog “expert.” Electrical simulation can help reduce risk and design re-spins. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Rico Brooks of Microchip about the MPLAB Mindi tool, and how it can help reduce your design risk.
