Mouser offers ON Semiconductor’s IoT development kit
Distributor, Mouser Electronics now stocks the IoT Development Kit (IDK) from On Semiconductor. The kit combines hardware and software elements to enable the rapid implementation of smart and connected cloud-based applications, says Mouser.
ON Semiconductor’s IoT Development Kit provides engineers with all of the building blocks needed to speed the evaluation, design and implementation of medical-, home- and industrial-based Internet of Things (IoT) designs. The IDK is a modular platform that offers designers a portfolio of power-efficient semiconductors that includes sensors, power management, connectivity, processors and actuators.
The IoT Development Kit has a Wi-Fi-enabled baseboard, the BB-GEVK: IoT Development Kit Base Board, that incorporates ON Semi’s NCS36510 system on chip (SoC), a low-power-optimised 32-bit ARM Cortex-M3 core that runs the ARM mbed operating system (OS). Mouser also offers a selection of modules or daughter cards that can be attached to the baseboard to provide various types of functionality, depending on what is required by a particular design. In addition, the ON Semiconductor IoT Development Kit supports cloud connectivity by protocols such as Message Queuing Telemetry Transport (MQTT) and Representational State Transfer (REST), and offers added support for security functions including encryption, secure debug, secure boot and authentication.
Along with the hardware, the ON Semiconductor IoT Development Kit includes a software development framework that encompasses the embedded OS, drivers, application program interfaces (APIs) for hardware shields (where each device has its own API, for a total of 21 APIs), a graphical user interface (GUI) and sample applications code.
The flexible IoT Development Kit has been designed to address a broad spectrum of IoT markets and applications, says Mouser, including motor control, climate and sense control, lighting control, process and industrial control, motion control, position control, and patient monitoring and healthcare.
