ON Semiconductor Develops IDK for Smarter IoT Connection
FREMONT, CA: ON Semiconductor, an energy efficient innovative solution provider, aiming to reduce global energy use, launches a modular IoT Development Kit (IDK) offering a portfolio of power-efficient semiconductors for smart and connected IoT designs.
This is an initiative to provide engineers with the hardware and software building blocks to increase the speed of the evaluation, designing and implementing medical, home, and industrial IoT applications. It supports numerous application areas, including industrial automation, intelligent lighting, building automation, smart cities and a wide range of medical monitoring solutions.
IDK’s comprehensive software development framework includes an embedded operating system, drivers, APIs for hardware shields, a graphical user
interface (GUI), and sample applications code. A variety of module options integrated in the IDK for sensing, wired and wireless connectivity and actuation along with built-in support for cloud software enables the platform to deliver data into the cloud for value added services.
IDK offers a modular, easy to use and compact platform that helps rapidly develop cloud-based IoT designs. A variety of industry-standard interfaces incorporated to form the extensible modular architecture allows perfect 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,” says Wiren Perera, IoT Strategist, ON Semiconductor.
