Hardware
Processors provide the intelligence behind IoT systems and are often integrated into system-on-a-chip designs.
Hardware that enables dual directional communication for data collection and control message delivery. Examples include cellular, Ethernet, and Wi-Fi.
Sensors transform energy into electrical data; they are the eyes and ears of IoT. Actuators transform electrical data into energy; they are the muscle of IoT.
IoT power supplies include traditional, thin-film and printed batteries, energy harvesting modules, flexible photovoltaic panels and thermoelectric sources.
Products used by end users that contain IoT technologies. Examples include enabled equipment, wearables, hand-held scanners, and tracking devices.
Software
Horizontal applications are standardized (e.g., asset tracking). Vertical applications are tailored to specific needs (e.g., delivery fleet management).
IoT analytics includes real-time or edge computing and batch analysis. Analytics can be behavioral, descriptive, predictive, or prescriptive.
Visualization solutions use dashboards, alerts, events, maps, and other tools to present easily comprehensible data to end users.
Data management solutions capture, index and store data in traditional database, cloud platforms, and fog systems for future use.
Security software provides encryption, access control, and identity protection to IoT solutions from data collection through end-user applications.
Services
System integrators link IoT component subsystems, customize solutions, and ensure that IoT systems communicate with existing operational systems.
IoT data management consultancies help to make sense of big data, decide which data to maintain and for how long, and troubleshoot IT issues.
IoT hardware consultancies provide services such as solution specification, product design, connectivity setup, and partner identification.
Examples of business consulting services include go-to-market design and execution, business model development, channel development, and corporate M&A.

Improving Asset Health Information
Improving Asset Health Information
Unexpected downtime costs industries billions of dollars each year, and the challenges of aging assets combined with many experienced professionals at or near retirement age have companies looking at the promises of IoT technology for answers.
Time Sensitive Networking
Time Sensitive Networking
For industrial applications such as process and machine control to run smoothly, there is a need to ensure that there is low communication latency and minimal jitter in order to meet closed loop control requirements.
Controlling and Monitoring Microgrids
Controlling and Monitoring Microgrids
Microgrid topologies offer several advantages over large traditional grids including increased resiliency and easier integration of distributed renewables. However, some challenges such as maintaining scalability and interoperability between diffferent vendors and connectivity protocol standards are challenges that have to be overcome in order to reap the benefits of such a system.

CompactRIO controller
CompactRIO controller
The NI cRIO-9068 combines a dual-core processor, a reconfigurable FPGA, and eight slots for C Series I/O modules within one chassis. Featuring a 667 MHz dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor running the NI Linux Real-Time OS and an Artix-7 FPGA, this system is well-suited for advanced embedded control and monitoring applications. The cRIO-9068 offers a -40 °C to 70 °C operating temperature range along with dual 9 VDC to 30 VDC power supply inputs for use in applications that demand a rugged and temperature-tolerant controller. The device features 512 MB of DDR3 memory for embedded operation, 1 GB of nonvolatile memory for data logging, and a wide range of connectivity options including two Gigabit Ethernet, one USB Hi-Speed, and three serial ports.
CompactRIO System on Module
CompactRIO System on Module
NI System on Module (SOM) devices are fully tested and validated hardware products that ship with a complete middleware solution and Linux-based RTOS already integrated into the system. The NI SOM uses a graphical approach to programming the FPGA, eliminating the need for HDL expertise. Before development, quickly prototype with CompactRIO, then deploy with the SOM reusing the majority of the code. Use the development kit to simplify the board design with reference designs and quickly integrate I/O with PMOD connectors and a digital prototyping area. The combination of the integrated software, intuitive FPGA programming, prototyping capability, and simplified development process results in a significant reduction in development time, design, risk, and time to market. The NI SOM is designed for high volume OEM applications.

AVnu Alliance
AVnu Alliance
AVnu Alliance is a consortium of professional, automotive and consumer electronics companies working together to establish and certify the interoperability of open Audio Video Bridging (AVB) standards. The Alliance works with its member companies to certify AVB products for interoperability. Manufacturers may use the AVnu logo on such certified products. Not every AVB-compliant device is submitted for certification to the AVnu Alliance. The lack of the AVnu logo does not necessarily imply a device is incompatible with other AVnu-certified devices.
