ON Semiconductor expands support for IoT with modular development platform

By Nick Flaherty www.flaherty.co.uk



ON Semiconductor has launched a modular IoT Development Kit (IDK) that provides engineers with all of the hardware and software building blocks needed to speed the evaluation, design and implementation of medical, home, and industrial IoT applications.

The kit combines power-efficient devices for smart and connected IoT designs that includes sensors, power management, connectivity, processors and actuators. By combining these with a comprehensive software framework, the IDK offers a modular, easy to use and compact platform that provides developers with access to everything they need to rapidly develop cloud-based IoT designs.
The ON Semiconductor IDK incorporates a variety of module options for sensing, wired and wireless connectivity and actuation. Its software development framework encompasses an embedded operating system (ARM mbed OS), drivers, APIs for hardware shields, a graphical user interface (GUI), and sample applications code. Built-in support for cloud software enables the platform to deliver data into the cloud for value added services such as analytics. The extensible modular architecture includes a variety of industry-standard interfaces such as Arduino and Pmod, allowing the integration of existing and future modules from both ON Semiconductor and third parties.

“ON Semiconductor offers a one stop shop of leadership semiconductor elements for industrial, medical and home IoT applications. By providing a single, modular, extensible platform that combines hardware, software and support for integrating third parties, the new IDK allows engineers to quickly and easily harness the power of ON Semiconductor solutions and significantly simplify the prototyping of cloud-based applications,” said Wiren Perera, IoT Strategist for ON Semiconductor.

The IDK is capable of supporting numerous application areas, including industrial automation, intelligent lighting, building automation, smart cities and a wide range of medical monitoring designs.

The IoT Development Kit will be available through distribution partners.
