    • STMicroelectronics and NXP Semiconductors have both launched microcontrollers utilizing the Arm Cortex-M33 integrating TrustZone to enable greater IoT security.

    • Design engineers might have to implement security elements into a chip, software, or platform, but they may not know how their work fits into their company’s security policies.

    • The trust anchors now need to be located down at the hardware level, in silicon, and as close to the edge as possible - even in the sensors. There are several solutions at the chip level.

    • While design engineers might have to implement security elements into a chip, software, or platform, they may not necessarily be aware of how their work fits into their company's bigger-picture security policies.

    • Addressing the memory wall and pushing for a new architectural solution enabling highly efficient performance computing for rapidly growing AI applications are key areas of focus for Leti, the French technology research institute of CEA Tech.

    • Family of processors targeted toward managing the systems that accelerate, brake and steer vehicles safely, whether under the direct control of a driver or an autonomous vehicle's control.

    • Chipmaker NXP Semiconductors has developed an end-to-end hardware and software solution for OEMs looking to add mobile payment capability to wearable, mobile, or IoT devices.

    • Doing more processing at the IoT edge to avoid sending sensitive data to the cloud emerged as a common theme among vendors at the Embedded World conference.
