Collaboration to slash IoT projects time-to-market

14-06-2021 | Murata | Development Boards

Time-to-market for IoT projects will be decreased by around 70% due to a collaboration between Murata and Pycom. The strategic collaboration draws together Murata’s heritage in innovative hardware, including IoT radio module technology, and Pycom’s design and integration skills in rapid IoT development and scaling.

From September 2021, customers creating IoT projects can take advantage of a new Murata-based Pycom evaluation kit that offers full-stack IoT. Perfect for companies wishing to develop and scale IoT solutions with low-power devices, long battery life and high levels of device reliability, the F01 H7 EVK makes it feasible to save time and money by moving rapidly and seamlessly through all IoT project stages from conception to completion. Developers may go from EVK to building final products with no loss of time redesigning or recoding. The kit is complemented by Pycom’s cloud-based device management platform and a new SDK allowing the user to simply manage their devices, LPWAN networks, and data feed from commissioning through to deployment stages.

Fred de Haro, CEO of Pycom, said: “Many IoT projects struggle to develop and deliver reliably connected devices that perform sustainably in the field. This means project implementation is slowed down considerably. Our collaboration with Murata offers a new hardware and cloud platform that’s quick to develop and flexible through all project phases, including development, manufacture, integration, testing and all the way to large scale deployment. It’s part of our deploy and forget pledge.”

Samir Hennaoui, product manager, Connectivity Modules, Murata Europe, commented: “Our EVK represents the ideal end-to-end solution for customers tasked with designing low-power and small form factor cellular IoT devices with full LPWAN network redundancy. This collaboration will deliver flawless customer engagement and ensure their ideas get to market in record time, bringing cellular IoT technology to a much broader market.”
