Future Electronics enhances Nebula IoT development kit

Electronic component distributor, Future Electronics, has enhanced its Nebula IoT development kit.

The Nebula board has been designed to enable developers of all levels of expertise, to explore the opportunities in IoT applications, including asset tracking, energy management, fitness, lighting controls, HVAC, portable controls, security and building automation. The cloud-ready IoT board allows developers to quickly prototype and deploy IoT ecosystems.

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 SoC.

Nebula has four interfaces to access the STM32F429 peripherals, enabling developers to create any IoT application, says Future. These include Arduino- compatible shield, mikroBUS socket, Pmod connector/interface and USB. The Nebula board also offers easy hardware expandability through a 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.

The add-on boards will also be available for purchase from Future Electronics.

Future Electronics ranks third in the world for component sales worldwide. In addition to a global supply chain, it offers differentiated engineering services encompassing technical support, technology training and custom board design.

Future Electronics was founded in 1968 and now 5,500 employees in 169 offices in 44 countries around the world. The company’s worldwide IT infrastructure provides real-time inventory availability and access, while enabling full integration of its operations, sales and marketing worldwide. Advanced engineering capabilities and technical solutions are available through all stages of the design-production cycle.
