Foundries.io today revealed its market outlook for the remainder of the decade, forecasting that government regulation and the risk of market share loss will drive embedded device OEMs to adopt rigorous new practices, ensuring end-to-end security for the life of all products.
Foundries.io teams up with Arduino to give Portenta X8 SoM a ready-made system with hardware and software security and operational features required for compliance with the EU Cyber Resilience Act for the lifetime of each device.
The lifecycle of a connected embedded device, from development to disposal at end of life, can stretch over 10 or more years and has a number of distinct stages: the Foundries.io analysis counts eight of them. For many OEMs today, the transitions between these stages give rise to a high degree of organizational and technical fragmentation.
The lifecycle of a connected embedded device, from development to disposal at end of life, can stretch over 10, 20 or more years, and has a number of distinct stages: an analysis by Foundries.io counts eight of them. For many OEMs today, the transitions between these stages give rise to a high degree of organizational and technical fragmentation.
Foundries.io is working with the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST’s) National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) in their Trusted IoT Device Network-Layer Onboarding and Lifecycle Management Consortium project to define recommended practices for performing trusted network-layer onboarding, which will aid in the implementation and use of trusted onboarding solutions for IoT devices at scale.
NIST does not evaluate commercial products under this consortium and does not endorse any product or service used.

Bill Curtis and Patrick Moorhead of Moor Insights & Strategy published an in depth research paper based on Bill’s experience with FoundriesFactory. Bill describes how the FoundriesFactory EPaaS (Embedded Platform-as-a-Service) and the new Arduino Pro Portenta X8 board are ushering in the start of the IoT plug-and-play era.
In 2016, Softbank’s Masayoshi Son compared the growth of IoT devices to the Cambrian explosion, referring to the biological Big Bang over 500 million years ago that resulted in our planet’s incredible diversity of life. He predicted a trillion connected devices in 20 years. When he made that bold prediction, analysts reckoned that we’d have 30 to 75 billion connected devices by 2022. The actual number turned out to be 8 to 15 billion, depending on how analysts define “connected devices.” This paper explains why IoT device deployments are not yet on a “trillion devices” trajectory and identifies the technology trend that makes Masayoshi Son’s bold prediction more realistic. We then show how FoundriesFactory, Foundries.io’s new and disruptive edge platform as a service (EPaaS), accelerates that trend.
