ON Semiconductor enables acceleration of cloud-based IoT projects

ON Semiconductor (Nasdaq: ON) has evolved its IoT Development Kit (IDK), the company said.

Encompassing both hardware and software elements, this multi-faceted product, with a unique modular construction, presents a configurable platform that enables engineers to evaluate, develop and release to market highly differentiated IoT systems in the shortest possible timeframes.

The inherent flexibility of the IDK means that it has the necessary scope to address a broad spectrum of industry sectors – including environmental monitoring, healthcare, home/building automation, industrial control and wearable electronics.

The IDK´s baseboard features the company´s advanced NCS36510 system-on-chip (SoC), with a low power-optimized 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, 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.

ON Semiconductor supplies semiconductor-based solutions, offering a comprehensive portfolio of energy efficient, power management, analog, sensors, logic, timing, connectivity, discrete, SoC and custom devices.
