How does Your Product get into the Internet of Things (IoT) Easily?
The Standard Design Platform for Mobile IoT Terminals
Your next product is supposed to be connected to the IoT (Internet of Things), to the cloud. On the one hand to centrally query sensor data and operating states in order to allow for e.g. remote service, planning of maintenance and planned refilling of consumables. On the other hand, the devices should also be configured, controlled and maintained locally with a smartphone or tablet.
Your device contains a control system which is deeply embedded, i.e. consists of printed circuit boards and not of off-the-shelf control components? The effort to implement all IoT-functions and especially the IoT-interfaces can be considerable. This is especially true since these control systems are usually very resource-limited (cost, energy consumption/cooling, space, processing power...).
Since the interfaces and the basic functions are the same for almost all applications and products, the development of your IoT functionality can be greatly shortened by using a standard design platform. It is not intended to be a "one size fits all" solution, but it is so flexible that it can be adapted with little effort to many "deeply embedded" IoT and M2M (Machine-to-Machine communication) tasks.
The specific part for your application we implement based on this Standard Design. This custom part consists of software and hardware in the embedded system plus of the applications for the cloud, the PC and the mobile.
Since you get the sources and schematics of the whole project, there are no dependencies, no "vendor lock-in".
Fields of Application
- Asset tracking
- Sensors/ control
- Preventive maintenance
- Battery powered operator terminal
Realize your IoT system fast and efficiently, based on our standard building blocks for hardware and software.
Our standard design for mobile connectivity is based on an Arm Cortex-M33 and various radio modules. This allows it to be flexibly adapted to your needs. The processor allows efficient crypto algorithms on the one hand, on the other hand it has a low power consumption for products that are battery powered or connected to a solar cell. The wireless components have also been optimized for low power consumption.
The software standard design has the components for communication, on the one hand with the cloud, on the other hand with a local app. In addition, it includes the necessary features for cybersecurity: certificates, secure elements, encryption, key management, secure updates via the cloud...
