Innovative cloud-based platform accelerates device and system evaluation

04-01-2019 | ON Semiconductor | New Technologies

ON Semiconductor is introducing the Strata Developer Studio, claimed to be a first-of-its-kind cloud-based development platform that presents a seamless, personalised and secure environment for engineers to evaluate and design with the company's technologies. The platform will give a faster and simpler way for engineers to work with evaluation and development boards, providing product information, the latest documentation, design and application notes, and reference design files right to the desktop. All of the company’s new evaluation boards will in the future be ‘Strata-Ready’, meaning they will automatically be recognised by the platform when they are connected to the host computer. This platform offers design teams with a user interface to the board, providing direct control of the configuration parameters and visual feedback of the board’s functionality. At the same time, the platform will download all the design information an engineer requires to start evaluation or design. “We reimagined the research, evaluation, and design process of hardware systems, creating a holistic Software as a Service (SaaS) solution to unencumber and speed customers in their quest to develop innovative new products,” said Edward Osburn, Strata project general manager at ON Semiconductor. “Gone are the archaic and outdated hardware evaluation paradigms hampering our customers’ ability to deliver amazing products.”
