ON Semiconductor launches development platform for industrial IoT, medical and smart home markets

ON Semiconductor, has introduced 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.

ON Semiconductor offers a portfolio of power-efficient semiconductors for smart and connected IoT designs that includes sensors, power management, connectivity, processors and actuators. By combining these silicon solutions 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 comprehensive 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 seamless integration of existing and future modules from both ON Semiconductor and third parties.ONSPR2931_IoT_DevKit_HRES (1)

“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 solutions. The ON Semiconductor booth at Electronica 2016 will feature demonstrations built using the IDK including wireless and PoE based smart lighting, heart rate monitoring, energy harvesting wireless sensor based fault prevention and an automated window shutter.

As well as the IDK-based demos, visitors to the ON Semiconductor Electronica booth will have the opportunity to see other examples of IoT designs such as a PIR-based motion alarm featuring Sigfox cloud connectivity, an intelligent water meter and a smart power application.

The IoT Development Kit will be available through the company’s distribution partners.
