The Internet of Things (IoT) and wearables span a wide range of end products. Building a successful device, however, requires making the right choice of digital, analog, RF, and sensor components. Combining all these elements into a working system can challenge designers, who must have a solid understanding of these diverse technologies as well as system-level issues such as security and low-power design. Picking the set of features that will appeal to customers in rapidly evolving markets presents many challenges.

To better prepare for the challenges in IoT and wearable design, join us on July 25 - 26 when we host the Linley IoT Hardware Conference at the Hyatt Regency Hotel, Santa Clara, CA. This two-day, single-track conference will cover hardware design for applications such as smart cities, smart grid, smart farms, smart homes, connected vehicles, and industrial IoT, along with wearables, health and fitness devices.

To provide context for later presentations, the conference will open with an overview and forecast of the IoT market from The Linley Group.

Topic Areas:
 - Wireless connectivity for edge devices, Bluetooth mesh versus ZigBee/Thread
 - IoT LPWAN standards: NB-IoT, LoRa, 802.11ah
 - Development of 5G for IoT
 - Sensors for consumer, industrial, and health/wellness applications
 - Security in IoT client devices and networks
 - Low-power IoT and wearable processors
 - Processors for voice UIs and AI in IoT devices and digital assistants
