“One size fits all” is becoming less of a viable electronic product strategy, be it for consumer or industrial applications. Flexibility and customizability of a user’s electronics is the new design paradigm. Every year, common electronic product categories are merging, gaining features and becoming more user oriented. Though multiplying features in electronics is the norm in the industry, the pace and number of features being implemented in the latest designs is accelerating. For electronic device designers and developers, this means that they now need to incorporate more features in the same, or even smaller, space as a previous design.
