RS R Com­pCom­po­nents om mp in­tro­duces ad­vanced prod­ucts sup­port­in­gortin or tin lat­est ARM mbed IoT de­vice plat­form aimed at a IoT de­vel­op­ment

RS Com­po­nents ( RS) is strength­en­ing its ARM mbed port­fo­lio with the lat­est mbed in­no­va­tions for con­nected, low-power, se­cu­rity-con­scious projects. The mbed OS ad­dresses key In­ter­net of Things ( IoT) de­vel­op­ment chal­lenges, and the Freescale Free­domK64F plat­form is one of the f irst boards in the in­dus­try to sup­port mbed OS seam­lessly.

mbed OS, which can now be down­loaded free of charge from at mbed.com/tech­nol­ogy/os, equips en­gi­neers to han­dle the com­plex­ity of IoT de­vel­op­ment at scale. mbed OS en­ables IoT de­vel­op­ment to take ad­van­tage of plat­form prin­ci­ples used suc­cess­fully in web 2.0 and smart­phone ap­pli­ca­tion de­vel­op­ment. Th­ese fea­tures in­clude pre-in­te­grated se­cu­rity IP, as well as con­nec­tiv­ity trans­ports and in­ter­faces sup­port­ing key stan­dards such as Blue­tooth Smart, Wi-Fi, Thread low-power wire­less mesh net­work­ing, 6LowPAN and GSM. In ad­di­tion, en­hance­ments to the mbed IoT De­vice Plat­form and sup­port for en­ergy-ef­fi­cient driv­ers help de­vel­op­ers make devices run for longer from a lim­ited en­ergy source such as a coin cell.

The Freescale Free­dom-K64F plat­form, now avail­able from RS, is one of the f irst de­vel­op­ment boards to bring mbed OS de­vel­op­ment to the en­gi­neer’s bench. mbed OS and the mbed Thread net­work­ing stack, which is ideal for smart-home ap­pli­ca­tions, run on the on-board Kinetis K64F mi­cro­con­troller. The board also con­tains a MEMS ac­celerom­e­ter and mag­ne­tome­ter con­sti­tut­ing a f ull e-com­pass, mi­croSD card slot and Eth­er­net port. It is also form-fac­tor com­pat­i­ble with the Ar­duino R3 board thereby giv­ing easy ac­cess to a wide range of shields for adding f unc­tions like 2.4GHz ra­dio, RFID or cel­lu­lar con­nec­tiv­ity. RS will add sup­port for f ur­ther plat­forms sup­port­ing mbed OS de­vel­op­ment as they emerge.
