The Internet of Things may be the biggest investing opportunity in our lifetimes. Investors watching these developing technologies need to keep an eye on Texas Instruments (NASDAQ:TXN).

Texas Instruments is a $51 billion semiconductor giant that serves a wide variety of industries. And therein lies its strength: The Internet of Things will affect a vast number of industries, and TI can have a product for virtually any IoTproduct.

I was able to meet with Texas Instruments representatives at the huge International CES earlier this year in Las Vegas. Kent Novak, senior vice president of DLP Products at TI, walked me through several of his company's products.

In this video, I speak with Novak about Texas Instruments' position in the competitive landscape. As the biggest broad-base semiconductor company in the world, Novak says, Texas Instruments holds a big advantage via the breadth of both its portfolio and its existing customer base.
