Developers Race Ahead with Sensor-to-Cloud Developer Kit from Silicon Labs

15 SEPTEMBER 2016

SLAB0317_Thunderboard-React-Bluetooth-CloudSilicon Labs has introduced a cost-effective prototyping vehicle that makes it easy to connect wireless sensor nodes to mobile devices and the cloud to help businesses make data-driven decisions. Silicon Labs’ new Thunderboard React developer kit features a battery-powered, sensor-rich demonstration board with Bluetooth® low energy technology and a powerful ARM® Cortex®-M4 processor for IoT connectivity, along with open-source design files and software for mobile apps running on Android and iOS devices. All hardware schematics, firmware, mobile apps and cloud software are available at no charge to developers.

Get all the details about Silicon Labs’ Thunderboard React kit including pricing, availability and videos at  http://www.silabs.com/daysofthunderboard. Download mobile apps and cloud software from GitHub. Discover how easy it is to develop intelligent sensor node applications for health and fitness wearables, home and industrial automation, motorized devices, asset tracking and more.

Thunderboard React simplifies IoT design by providing the sensing, processing and wireless components needed to connect a battery-powered sensor node to a cloud database. The on-board sensors measure motion, light and environmental conditions, and this real-time sensor data is transmitted to the cloud over a Bluetooth connection. An intuitive mobile app displays the data on smartphones and tablets while enabling the user to control the board.

congatec introduces highly flexible IoT gateway system

15 SEPTEMBER 2016

congatec-IoT-Gateway-presscongatec, a leading technology company for embedded computer modules, single board computers and embedded design and manufacturing services, introduces its flexible IoT gateway solution. This new, highly flexible IoT gateway system is application ready and easily customizable for rapid field deployment. The congatec IoT gateway offers extreme levels of flexibility in terms of processing performance and software integration, able to host up to 8 wireless antennas that can be connected to 3 mini PCI Express slots and 6 internal USB based slots for wireless and wired connectivity modules. Customized system designs are also available upon request.
OEMs utilizing the conga IoT gateway system benefit from a pre-configured, pre-certified IoT gateway that can easily connect a wide range of heterogeneous sensors and systems to cloud-based services. Target uses include Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications such as smart cities, smart agriculture, connected homes and vehicles, digital signage systems and other IoT applications.

congatec’s CEO Jason Carlson explains its application-ready-system strategy for IoT gateways: “The large and fast growing IoT market is well served by congatec’s traditional embedded computer boards and module products, but OEMs are increasingly demanding IoT gateways that are complete, application-ready systems. To meet this growing need, congatec has designed a highly flexible and configurable gateway system that can be optimized to meet a wide variety of specific application demands. Together with our embedded design and manufacturing services, we can now meet any specific IoT gateway requirement.” As well as the engineering and production of optimized IoT solutions, congatec’s embedded design and manufacturing service also includes certification services, an increasingly essential element of deploying wireless technologies and edge devices that connect to carrier grade infrastructures.
