Future Electronics adds six shields to Nebula IoT development kit.

Distributor, Future Electronics, has enhanced its Nebula IoT development kit. The Nebula board has been designed to enable developers, both novice and expert, to explore the opportunities in IoT applications, including asset tracking, energy management, fitness, lighting controls, heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC), portable controls, security and building automation. The cloud-ready IoT board allows developers to quickly prototype and deploy IoT ecosystems, says Future Electronics.

The Nebula board supports applications development through the Cypress WICED (Wireless Internet Connectivity for Embedded Devices) Studio development platform. Wireless connectivity is supported by the Murata 1DX module, which is powered by the Cypress CYW4343W Wi-Fi and BT/BLE combo system on chip (SoC).

Nebula is equipped with four interfaces to access the STM32F429 peripherals, enabling developers to create any IoT application, claims Future. The interfaces are the Arduino compatible shield, mikroBUS socket, Pmod connector/interface and USB. The Nebula board also offers hardware expandability through a large number of standardised add-on boards. Each one focuses on a different application, such as motor control and environmental sensors, and includes the wireless connectivity to enable IoT development. These add-on boards will also be available for purchase from Future Electronics.

“The addition of six compatible shields provides our customers with many different sensor platforms to design with, including four Mikroelektronika click boards targeted for humidity, proximity and temperature related applications,” said Matthew Rotholz, corporate vice president, product marketing at Future Electronics.
