UBM Tech Reports the 2012 EDN Magazine Hot 10004003009

Nov 26, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- UBM Tech announced the 2012 EDN Magazine Hot 100, the electronics industry's most significant products of the year based on innovation, significance, usefulness, and popularity.

In a release, the Company noted that the technologies range from ICs and components, to software, test instruments, development tools, and sensors.

"It's always a fun and enlightening challenge for the EDN editors to select the year's Hot 100 products, which has been an annual tradition at EDN since 1993. This year's selection not only reflects some technology trends that have been in place for a while, but also highlights some new trends that are just emerging, as well as a unique product or two that is in a class of its own," said Rich Pell, Executive and Chief Technical Editor, EDN.

Trends include: -An ongoing emphasis on low power and power-efficient solutions, reflecting the use of mobile products and power conservation concerns -The same for wireless communications - whether Wi-Fi, cellular, GPS, ZigBee, or something else, more and more end products are becoming connected as we move toward the Internet of Things -An increasing emphasis on security in all areas - mobile, automotive, smart meter - reflecting the increasing move toward smart connected products in virtually all industries and applications -Health and fitness-targeted devices are on the rise, reflecting a trend toward tech-enabled personal health products - both mobile and in the home -Some of the predictions made by Nikola Tesla a century ago about wireless power are finally becoming reality, as we are seeing more devices aimed at allowing end products to be powered or charged without needing wires or cables Winners include: Analog Freescale Semiconductor -
