New USB SuperSpeed for Multimedia Devices

With over three billion devices shipped in 2008 alone, USB is the most successful electronic device interface ever, according to the latest market study by In-Stat.

Fueled by new SuperSpeed technology, also known as USB 3.0, and continued adoption across computing, communication and consumer devices, over 4 billion USB-enabled devices will ship in 2013 -- representing a 6.6 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) compared to 2008.

Highlights from the In-Stat study include:

- Digital TVs with USB will grow to 140 million units shipped in 2013.

- USB-enabled LCD PC monitors will grow to about 70 million units, propelled by a CAGR of over 150 percent.

- Blueray DVD players with USB will see a CAGR of over 90 percent.

These growth segments will complement the enormous volume of markets such as handsets, where internal USB capability can be found in more than 1 billion units shipped annually, and where USB ports are becoming much more common.

"USB dominates its traditional applications while simultaneously spreading into new applications," says Brian O'Rourke, In-Stat analyst.

SuperSpeed USB silicon vendors hope to open up the number of applications, hence increasing the potential for device interaction and enlarging the USB ecosystem.

Manufacturers Benefit from GenAI Apps

Digital transformation goals continue to influence large enterprise IT spending. Generative Artificial Intelligence (GenAI) has now emerged as a transformative technology. Its ability to create entirely new business models or designs holds immense promise across industries. Still, a recent market study by ABI Research, presented at the 'Hannover Messe 2024' event, paints a somewhat cautious picture of GenAI adoption in the global manufacturing sector. ABI Research highlighted a strong presence of GenAI at the event, with industrial software vendors showcasing its application in the form of AI assistants and co-pilots. They forecast revenue from GenAI use cases in manufacturing will reach $10.5 billion by 2034. Manufacturing GenAI Market Development "The dominant use cases leverage core strengths of Large Language Models (LLMs) for Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) programming, code generation, step-by-step work instructions, and data enrichment and consolidation,"
