Development kit simplifies cloud connection for IoT
Available from Rutronik UK, the AE-Cloud1 kit by Renesas simplifies connection of IoT applications to the enterprise cloud.
The kit demonstrates the Synergy Enterprise Cloud Toolbox which enables users to connect their IoT applications to enterprise cloud vendors such as Amazon, Microsoft or Google without licensing.
It includes reference solutions, step-by-step documentation and complete software-projects, says Rutronik. The AE-Cloud1 kit is designed to kickstart the development of connected applications. Developers can get started quickly on the Synergy Software Package (SSP) and set up Wi-Fi-Framework, Ethernet connectivity and cloud connectivity.
The Enterprise Cloud Toolbox is an extension to Renesas’ Synergy Platform. It combines security and connectivity to make up a practical IoT application that developers can customise for their own end-applications, says Rutronik. It is suited for developers looking for an uncomplicated and secure option to connect their products to a major enterprise cloud service; connecting to the clouds of Amazon, Google or Microsoft in under 10 minutes, reports Rutronik. The package combines pre-integrated, tested, qualified and maintained hard- and software to grant high security.
Developers can make this connection using a Renesas-hosted cloud account. If users already own an account, they can choose to integrate the connection within it. With an established connection, the Synergy Enterprise Cloud Toolbox enables users to visualise their sensor data on a private dashboard streaming live to the cloud from Synergy microcontroller-based hardware over Wi-Fi or a cellular connection.
The AE-Cloud1 kit can be used in networking IoT-devices that monitor and/or control surrounding environment and mechanisms, such as a smart home, industrial and building automation, energy management systems and medical appliances.
