Preface

The adoption of rugged chips that can operate reliably even under extreme conditions has experienced an unprecedented growth. This growth is in tune with the revolutions related to mobile systems and the Internet of Things (IoT), emergence of autonomous and semiautonomous transport systems (such as connected and driverless cars), and highly automated factories and the robotics boom. The numbers are astonishing—if we consider just a few domains (connected cars, wearable and IoT devices, tablets and smartphones), we will end up having around 16 billion embedded devices surrounding us by 2018, as Fig. 1 shows.
