ON Semi: out-of-the-box solutions accelerate cloud-based IoT development projects

ON Semiconductor announces the evolution of its IoT Development Kit. Encompassing both hardware and software elements, this multi-faceted product presents a configurable platform that enables engineers to evaluate, develop and release to market highly differentiated IoT systems in the shortest possible timeframes. 

The IDK’s baseboard features the company’s advanced NCS36510 SoC, with a low power-optimised 32-bit ARM Cortex-M3 core, running the ARM mbed OS. By attaching different daughter boards to the Wi-Fi enabled IDK baseboard, a wealth of connectivity protocols enabled by the company’s ultra-low power radios (SIGFOX, Thread, EnOcean, Wireless Mbus, Bluetooth Low Energy, ZigBee, PoE, CAN, etc.), sensors (temperature, moisture, ambient light, proximity and pressure, along with heart rate monitoring and bio sensor interfaces) and actuators (with stepper and brushless motor driving, plus the ability to drive LED strings) can be added to the system. In addition, the portfolio includes support for numerous functions important for implementing security, including encryption, secure debug, secure boot and authentication. This is complemented on the software side by an Eclipse-based IDE that includes a C++ compiler, debugger and code editor.
