In a recent release, ON Semiconductor has announced its intention to help engineers address a broader range of Internet of Things (IoT) applications through the release of a new multi-sensor shield, and an expansion of software support for its IoT Development Kit (IDK). This release is designed to accelerate development timeframes and deploy IoT solutions much quicker for a variety of IoT Healthcare, Connected wellness, smart home, and Industrial IoT applications.

ON Semiconductor’s IDK is designed to be an intuitive, modular, node-to-cloud platform that enables evaluation rapid prototyping and development of IoT solutions. It gives access to a wide variety of sensing, processing, connectivity and actuation possibilities under the IoT ‘umbrella’ through a range of shields/daughter cards that attach to the Arm SoC motherboard.

Software is integral to the IDK, and as part of this capability enhancement, ON Semiconductor has released version 4.0 of its IDK software. This now includes native support for IBM cloud alongside the existing support for Carriots (Altair) cloud. Additionally, the embedded operating system running on the IDK motherboard has been upgraded to mbed version 5.5.

“ON Semiconductor continues to expand its intuitive IoT offerings to help customers prototype and develop solutions for various IoT verticals and deploy them much quicker and with greater cost effectiveness,” said Wiren Perera, IoT head, ON Semiconductor. “We realize the importance of providing holistic solutions from node to cloud.  The new sensing capabilities complement our ultra low power connectivity and actuator options enabling a whole new class of solutions with industry leading battery life.  Broadened cloud support, upgraded OS and a configurable mobile app all represent a commitment to continuing software enhancements that facilitate rapid deployment.”

Designers are now able to prototype and develop a wider range of IoT devices and solutions. ON Semiconductor is developing an Android mobile app that will allow visualization of sensor data and control of actuators from a mobile handset via the low-power BLE. The IDK multi-sensor shields will be available for customers to order in April.
