Power is a big concern for many IoT applications. “The focus for 2019 will be creating sustainable power that enables the industry’s vision of widespread IoT implementation,” says David Su, CEO for Atmosic Technologies. “To lower power consumption in IoT devices, the industry will look to enhanced design techniques, process technology scaling and improvement, and design optimization and customization. “The result will be better battery life. Improved architectural design will leverage functions like on-demand wakeup to refine a device’s wake and sleep cycles, further reducing power consumption. The end goal of reduced power is ultimately forever battery-life. In 2019, we will see portable devices in which the batteries last the duration of a products’ life.”
