Connected industrial machines can sense a wide array of information used to make key decisions within the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). A sensor within an edge node can be spatially far removed from any data aggregation point. It must connect through a gateway that links edge data with a network.

Floating-gate Flash circuitry is only embedded in devices fabricated at 40nm or earlier nodes, so it is not embedded in the most advanced, highest-performance processors. For secure code and data storage, designers, therefore, have to specify an external device that contains secure memory capacity.
