The Internet of Things is an important part of the new generation of information technology and an important stage of development in the era of "informatization." Its English name is: "Internet of things (IoT)". As the name suggests, the Internet of Things is the Internet connected to things. This has two meanings: First, the core and foundation of the Internet of Things is still the Internet, which is an extended and extended network based on the Internet; Second, its client extends and extends to any item and item for information. Exchange and communication, that is, things and things. The Internet of Things is widely used in the convergence of networks through communication-aware technologies such as intelligent sensing, identification technology and pervasive computing. It is also called the third wave of the development of the world information industry after computers and the Internet. The Internet of Things is the application expansion of the Internet. It is not so much that the Internet of Things is a network, but the Internet of Things is a business and application. Therefore, application innovation is the core of the development of the Internet of Things. Innovation 2.0, with user experience as the core, is the soul of the development of the Internet of Things.
PCB Applications Driven by IoT
PCBs are at the center of enabling electronic devices to offer IoT capabilities found in smart home applications or mobile screens in car dashboards, but IoT is also influencing PCB design and applications to meet rising demand for new methods of using the internet, including:
Sensors and cameras in automobiles and home utilities to offer higher levels of efficiency, convenience and security.
Fitness trackers whose data can be analyzed remotely.
Hue-changing lightbulbs that create custom moods for different rooms, manageable from tablets or even smaller smart devices.
Grid layouts in shopping centers or amusement parks that monitor consumer routes to provide customized sale opportunities for both retailers and customers.
PCBs enable nearly every new idea to be made possible, whether it’s monitoring train arrival times and maintenance needs to create reliable transportation schedules or tracking real-time traffic over satellite for optimized personal GPS navigating through car dashboards. In medical devices and wearables, without the changes in PCB form design that offer flexibility to fit any shape or high density to fill small spaces with high-power capabilities, IoT would not nearly be as attainable as it is today, nor would the future of it be as promising.
