Analog integration is driving the integrated factory, while advances in analog and mixed-signal ICs contribute greatly to factory productivity, efficiency, quality, safety, and security. Distributed intelligence, smart machines, smart sensors, and the integration of factory data with business management systems (Information Technology or IT) allows optimization of not only the factory process, but also material handling, machine utilization, scheduling, reporting, and throughput. These integrated IC s and processes enable robust machine-to-machine (M2M) communications, increase uptime, reduce maintenance costs, and, ultimately, implement an Internet of Things (IoT).
