Premier Farnell launch tinyTILE for wearables and IoT market

Farnell element14 launch tinyTILE, an Intel Curie module based board that has been created in partnership with Intel. tinyTILE is a new low power board offering features that are ideal for "always-on" applications, such as social media, sports and fitness activities, as it enables quick and easy identification of action and motions. The module is packaged into a very small form factor measuring approx. 35 x 26mm and runs a software platform created specifically for the Intel Curie module. As such, tinyTILE can be programmed using either the Arduino IDE, Intel’s own software – Intel Curie Open Developer Kit, or Anaren Atmosphere – a cloud-based ecosystem that offers a complete end-to-end IoT solution. Each of these environments provide unlimited development possibilities with the tinyTILE.

With a general trend in emerging technologies for ever smaller design envelopes, developers are facing the challenge of increasing features and functionality whilst reducing product weight and size. Thanks to its compact design, tinyTILE is the ideal solution for applications where space is limited and is the perfect board to develop wearable and IoT products. Key features of this new board include: compute functionality, motion sensors, Bluetooth connectivity, pattern matching capabilities for optimised analysis of sensor data and battery charging capabilities.

tinyTILE gives developers entry level access to begin developing IoT and wearables products at a lower cost, opening out the possibilities for future developments. tinyTILE has only been made possible thanks to the strong partnership with Intel with Premier Farnell being the sole manufacturer.
