28-02-2018 | ON Semiconductor | Development Boards

ON Semiconductor has released a new multi-sensor shield and expansion of software support for its IoT Development Kit(IDK). With this release, clients can speed development timeframes and deploy IoT solutions far quicker for many connected industrial and wellness wearables as well as for smart home, asset tracking, predictive maintenance and other industrial IoT applications. The company’s IDK is an intuitive, modular, node-to-cloud platform that allows evaluation rapid prototyping and development of IoT solutions, delivering significant value to time and resource-stretched designers. The IDK provides access to a broad assortment of processing, sensing, connectivity and actuation possibilities under the IoT ‘umbrella’ through a range of shields/daughter cards that attach to the Arm SoC motherboard. “ON Semiconductor continues to expand its intuitive IoT offerings to help customers prototype and develop solutions for various IoT verticals and deploy them much quicker and with greater cost effectiveness,” said Wiren Perera, who heads IoT at ON Semiconductor. “We realise the importance of providing holistic solutions from node to cloud. The new sensing capabilities complement our ultra low power connectivity and actuator options enabling a whole new class of solutions with industry leading battery life. Broadened cloud support, upgraded OS and a configurable mobile app all represent a commitment to continuing software enhancements that facilitate rapid deployment.” Embedded World, Hall 4A, Booth 260
