Linley IoT Conference 2015
Covers hardware design for client devices on the Internet of Things (IoT)
Held on June 11, 2015

The Internet of Things (IoT) encompasses a wide range of end products. Almost any embedded system can be turned into an IoT device by simply adding a wired or wireless Internet connection. Today, many IoT products use standard embedded processors or microcontrollers (MCUs). Although some IoT devices cost more than $100 today, most devices will require lower prices to enable the expected growth. To minimize cost, the processor and wireless chips will often come from the same supplier or will be integrated onto the same chip.

The combination of processor and radio technology challenges embedded hardware designers who have generally worked with either one or the other. Designing a successful IoT device requires a solid understanding of these technologies as well as system-level issues such as security and low-power design. Picking the right set of features in markets that are quickly evolving presents another set of challenges.

To be better prepared for IoT system design and the changes in this new market, attendees joined us on June 11 when we hosted the Linley IoT Conference at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Santa Clara. This one-day, single-track conference focused on hardware design for client devices on the Internet of Things, such as smart meters, smart parking, smart farms, smart appliances, connected vehicles, smart lighting, and home security. To provide context for later presentations, the conference opened with an overview and forecast of the IoT market from The Linley Group.

Attendees also had the opportunity to meet with industry leaders, The Linley Group analysts, networked with their peers, attended an evening reception with sponsor exhibits and demos, and more.

The conference included:
- Sponsor exhibits and demos
- Evening networking reception
- Raffles by The Linley Group
- Hosted speaker tables at lunch (meet the presenters)
- Free parking
- Continental breakfast and gourmet lunch
- Free Wi-Fi

The conference was targeted for *system designers, chip designers, software designers, OEM/ODMs, press, and the financial community. Attendance is free to qualified online registrants.
