The Internet of Things, also known as IoT is the notion that more devices are becoming smarter and more connected to people and to each other.This applies to a number of markets ranging from industrial to metering, consumer, lighting, white goods and automotive.
IoT is a huge market and dwarfs all other opportunities for the semiconductor industry as virtually every device or system equipped with electronics of any kind will be connected to the Internet in some way. As the semiconductor industry has transitioned from PCs to mobile, IoT will now rise to become the predominant market.This transition will favor ultra-low power and integration of microcontrollers, wireless connectivity, security, touch technologies and sensor management products.

Of the top 25 semiconductor companies, we discounted five (Intel, Samsung, Sony, Toshiba, Nvidia).Due to the diversity of their offering and the difficulty of segmenting activity realting to Semiconductors.
Our AVR microcontrollers have broad customer reach through our software Studio development platform with over 65K active developers, through our Atmel Gallery App Store with over 50K users. Even more, AVR has been the favorite with the Arduino community. community consists of professional engineers, hobbyists and students that use an Arduino board, with an AVR device, to jump-start their designs. Over 1.2 M Arduino development boards in the market with the majority of these boards powered by an AVR. Over 200K members in our AVR Freaks community.
Since most 32-bit users are also 8-bit customers, we are using our broad global base of AVR customers as a key base to grow our 32-bit business. ------------------- Opportunity in IoT
