IoT or “Internet of Things” has the power to transform businesses, but most of us start looking at technology first, instead of identifying the business value it brings to the table. Whether it be improving customer loyalty, improving product design, optimizing production, improving service or reducing costs by managing warranty and recalls more effectively, IoT has a significant role to play in digital business transformation.

Tilera

Tilera Corporation is a fabless semiconductor company focusing on scalable multicore embedded processor design. The company ships multiple processors, including the TILE64, TILEPro64, and the TILEPro36, TILE-Gx72, TILE-Gx36, TILE-Gx16 and TILE-Gx9.Tilera's primary product family is the Tile CPU. Tile is a multicore design, with the cores communicating via a new mesh architecture, called iMesh, intended to scale to hundreds of cores on a single chip. The goal is to provide a high-performance CPU, with good power efficiency, and with greater flexibility than special-purpose processors such as DSPs. In October 2009, they announced a new chip family TILE-Gx based on 40nm technology that features up to 72 cores at 1.2 GHz. Other TILE-Gx family members include 9-, 16-, 36-core variants.

Securing industrial networks: it’s a journey

Article | April 14, 2021

Trying to secure the industrial network in one go is like boiling the ocean. Better to view it as a journey. At each step in the journey, you’ll make incremental changes to people, process, and technology. Minimal security. This is the current state for most manufacturers. If you’re here, you’ve segmented the industrial network from the IT network. Traffic can’t cross from the IT network to the industrial network without clearing the DMZ. You can block malware from entering the industrial network. You can block malware from leaving the industrial network to infect the enterprise network. But if the industrial network is exposed to malicious software, you don’t have a way to contain it. That means the malware might affect multiple manufacturing cells or production lines — even multiple plants.

Driving Rapid and Continuous Value for IoT Through an Ecosystem Approach

Article | May 19, 2021

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, manufacturing is roaring back to life, and with it comes a renewed focus on Digital Transformation initiatives. The industry stands on the doorstep of its much-anticipated renaissance, and it’s clear that manufacturing leaders need to not only embrace but accelerate innovation while managing critical processes like increasing capacity while maintaining product quality. Effective collaboration will be key to doing both well, but it’s even more critical as workforces have gone and are still largely remote. As the virus swept the globe, it became apparent quickly that there would be winners and losers. Many manufacturers were caught off-guard, so to speak. Before manufacturing’s aforementioned reckoning, the industry had already been notorious for its slow adoption of the digital, data-centric mindset that has transformed other industries.

Automotive Cyber Security: A Crash Course on Protecting Cars Against Hackers

Article | March 26, 2020

Modern cars have dozens of computers on board, and they’re not just for running GPS or playing music. Computers monitor and control nearly every system on your vehicle, including steering, brakes, and the engine itself. This is why automotive cyber security is essential. If a vehicle’s computer systems aren’t properly protected, hackers can steal data or even take control of the vehicle. As you can imagine, that makes automotive cyber security a major concern for consumers, auto companies, and OEMs alike. But what is there to know about automotive cyber security? We’ll explore what cybersecurity in the automotive industry entails and what the biggest threats are to automotive IoT and connected vehicles. We’ll also share some insights from a recent webinar by Sectigo and Mentor Graphics on how to protect connected vehicles from emerging cybersecurity threats.

5 Ways to Secure Your IoT Devices—Before They Get Hacked

Article | March 13, 2020

Internet of Things (IoT) devices make our lives more efficient and our day-to-day more convenient. They allow us to monitor our homes from afar, control our lights, thermostats, and locks and beef up the security of our homes—among a host of other things. But because smart devices have become so integrated into our lives, they leave us vulnerable to cybercrime too. In general, IoT devices have little to no built-in security, making them top targets for hackers. And since most IoT devices are interconnected, it puts your whole suite of devices at risk if even one gets hacked. Just as you lock your front door before you go to bed, you’ll want to make sure your IoT devices are secure before you start using them.
