5 Major Trends Influencing the Chip Industry

Capable processing units on end devices are vital for important applications. As machines get smarter, industrial machines and home appliances are rapidly adopting embedded processors for their operations.

Fremont, CA: The semiconductor industry has significantly grown and transformed with the emergence of new applications. Some of these applications are chips for the automotive industry, blockchain, and cybersecurity.

Here are four trends influencing the chip industry:

Autonomous Things

Smaller autonomous things such as robots for homes and industrial use, as well as drones in agriculture, sports, and leisure are gradually entering the public and private landscape.

Edge Computing

Capable processing units on end devices are vital for important applications. As machines get smarter, industrial machines and home appliances are rapidly adopting embedded processors for their operations.

LoRa technologies

Long Range technologies (LoRa) will contribute to the industry’s low-cost infrastructure for extensive use of the Internet of Things (IoT) applications. LoRaWAN and LoRa allow wireless, bi-directional, and long-range communication on public frequencies. More than 100 mobile operators in over 50 countries use LoRa, implementing effective communication in sub-Gigahertz frequencies to a range of more than ten kilometers in rural areas.

Quantum Computing

Quantum computing can be implemented in areas like medicine, where this application can be used to develop tailored medicines. Non-classical quantum computing provides an exponentially scalable, highly parallel computing model, enabling it to process data faster.
