Industry 4.0

The Changing Factory Floor

Brendan O’Dowd, General Manager of Analog Devices Industrial Business, talks about some of the changes Industry 4.0 is bringing to the factory floor and how they are impacting the way ADI works with customers to help them accelerate the transition to the secure connected enterprise.

Flexible Universal Analog IO

The demand for greater capacity and more flexibility on the factory floor is driving the need for more flexible IO (input/output) architectures. ADI is releasing our next generation Universal I/O solutions that will bring higher integration, robustness, flexibility and efficiency resulting in significant time and cost savings. And we continue to make this an area of focus for our research and resources.
