Industrial IoT starter kit streamlines device and cloud development
Backed by IBM, Wind River and Xilinx, the Avnet MicroZed Industrial IoT starter kit, is designed to simplify customers’ prototype and development efforts, says Avnet Memec. It says that it also provides an easy and quick transition to production.
Based on its MicroZed System-on-Module (SoM) with a Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC from Xilinx and pluggable sensor solutions from Maxim Integrated and STMicroelectronics. The kit integrates the IBM Watson IoT platform agent on top of a custom-configured, certified image of the Wind River Pulsar Linux OS. Using a standard MQTT messaging protocol, the Watson IoT platform agent enables registered, secure connection to the Watson IoT Platform, cloud services and applications from the IBM Bluemix portfolio of composable services to enhance IoT solutions with cognitive capabilities.
