Vishay Intertechnology, Inc., a Fortune 1000 Company listed on the NYSE (VSH), is one of the world's largest manufacturers of discrete semiconductors (diodes, rectifiers, transistors, and optoelectronics and selected ICs) and passive electronic components (resistors, capacitors, inductors, sensors, and transducers). These components are used in virtually all types of electronic devices and equipment, in the industrial, computing, automotive, consumer, telecommunications, military, aerospace, and medical markets.
Texas Instruments (TI) offers more than 100,000 products. Its largest segment is analog semiconductors, which change real-world signals (such as sound and images) into the digital Data Streams. Analog product are used to manage power in all electronic devices; TI sells these products to customers in the consumer electronics and industrial markets, among others. The company also makes embedded processors, which can process data from analog chips and handle specific tasks in electronic devices. TI's other products include digital light processing (DLP) chips used in high-definition projectors, custom semiconductors, and calculators. It generates most of its sales from the Asia/Pacific region.
Schneider Electric is a leading global manufacturer of equipment for electrical power distribution and for industrial control and automation. The company helps power generators distribute electricity; designs automation systems for the automobile and water treatment industries; builds electric networks and utility management systems for energy, water treatment, oil and gas, and marine applications; and manages electric power in residential, industrial, and commercial buildings.

The recent Internet of Things (IoT) momentum has been enabled through a broad adherence to open standards (such as Ethernet) and by technology breakthroughs in the area of Data Aggregation middleware. Schneider Electric delivers open, connected solutions at each IoT-driven intelligent ecosystem layer: the connected, decentralised device layer (sensors, drives, meters, PLCs, controls, switchgear), the platform layer (cloud services, middleware, physical infrastructure architectures), and the On-Premise central control layer (operational intelligence, remote monitoring, predictive analysis, simulation, cloud analytics). Schneider Electric tools help data centre, plant, and smart grid operators to become more efficient by sorting through mountains of data (eliminating false alarms or nuisance alarms) and by generating dashboards that consolidate the information coming in from all parts of the extended network. Instead of gridlock, a smooth flow of information is created which allows for greater operational intelligence and higher quality decisions. IoT is broadening the scope of where both power protection and security are needed, as entire chains of communication can be disrupted by the breakdown of a single device. Schneider Electric leverages the power of IoT and big data to maximize safety and reliability through high-precision automation and control, training and simulation, the generation of ‘what if’ scenarios, robust remote management, Predictive Maintenance, managed services, and advanced analytics. Power protection and cyber security considerations are imbedded into our product designs in order to strengthen overall network reliability.
