Industry 4.0

The changing factory floor: From edge to cloud, unlocking opportunities today

Brendan O’Dowd, General Manager of Analog Devices Industrial Business, on how our unique knowledge of industry’s needs across the edge-to-cloud signal chain is generating powerful new opportunities for our customers.

Flexible Universal Analog IO

Accelerate your time to market by building modular designs with software I/O that can easily be reconfigured for diverse projects and customers. You’ll reduce the number of designs required, save on build and setup time—and you’ll only need to certify elements once. Our first-to-market software configurable I/O delivers easy-to-configure channels and dramatically simplified wiring, freeing up time for more advanced development. For your customers, it means production flows that traditionally take hours to reconfigure can be done in minutes!
