Internet of Things (IoT)

ADI partners with customers to Instrument the Future. Leveraging industry-leading capabilities, we enable technological advances, further scientific discovery, and improve quality of life. ADI delivers complete solutions from antenna-to-bits and measurement-to-information.

The Internet of Things begins where the physical world connects to the digital.

Sensors. Converters. Processors and transceivers. These are what gather and transport the data that fuel the promise and potential of the Internet of Things. That’s where the IoT begins. And that’s where the need for intelligence, accuracy and reliability is crucial.

Components that sense, measure, interpret, connect, and analyze—these are the devices that live on the front lines of the IoT. These are the devices we’ve pioneered and advanced for more than half a century.

The Internet of Things Depends of the Intelligence of Things.

Having information is not the same as having insight. Data is most valuable when you know it is accurate and reliable. By using the best quality data, intelligence at the edge, and reliable connectivity, you can enable your cloud to deliver deep learning and insights.

That’s where our focus is.

From human biometrics to machine vibration profiles, discover how our technologies are measuring what could not be measured before. And discover how these can create new possibilities, more reliable outcomes, lower costs, and faster time to market for your IoT solutions.

What is IoT to Analog Devices?

At Analog Devices, a good IoT solution is intelligent, has integrity, and solves the toughest, most important challenges. We’re bringing intelligence to the edge of the IoT by optimizing data quality and analytics within the “things” to ensure data is relevant, accurate, and complete. We’re bringing integrity and efficiency to the IoT with reliable wireless connectivity solutions and security solutions. And we’re partnering with our customers to design solutions that solve their toughest IoT challenges in applications where outcomes really matter.
