IoT gateway has ARM mbed support

At this week’s ARM TechCon, u-blox will demonstrate enhanced ODIN-W2 and NINA-B1 modules, with mbed OS 5 support. The ODIN-W2 wireless IoT gateway and NINA-B1 Bluetooth low energy module can be used to develop wireless IoT applications, with reduced costs, development time and footprint, claims the company.

The ARM mbed OS 5 open environment provides all the features needed to rapidly deploy and develop connected IoT products based on an ARM Cortex-M microcontroller, including security, connectivity, and drivers for sensors and I/O devices.

The demonstration will show the ODIN-W2 reading sensor data via Bluetooth low energy technology from NINA-B1-equipped sensors, and simultaneously streaming it via WiFi to an IBM cloud server. This allows for real time data visualisation and analysis.

The certified ODIN-W2, NINA-B1 and wireless stacks can be used in embedded applications, such as IoT, medical and industrial applications which use multiple sensors and/or smart gateways linked by WiFi and Bluetooth.

The ARM mbed development environment, is RTOS-based and accompanied by tools and libraries for full access to each u-blox module’s ARM Cortex-M4-based microcontroller. There is no need for an external host CPU; saving bill of materials costs and development resources, while keeping the board footprint to a minimum.

As well as a consistent development process across multiple products, this environment allows a range of sensor and actuator-based IoT designs to be implemented on a single, compact, certified wireless module.
