IoT development boards

16 August 2017 Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless, IoT

RS Components is extending its portfolio of high-quality development boards with the introduction of two new SmartEverything solutions from Arrow. The SmartEverything Lion IoT development system-on-module (SoM) board and the SmartEverything Aris IoT board both offer support for Internet of Things (IoT) application development.

The Lion SoM board is based on an Arduino form-factor board that features a Microchip LoRa module, which enables low-data-rate communications to be made over long distances. LoRa enables data from devices such as onboard sensors and actuators to be connected to the cloud to update data and control information for M2M and IoT applications. Features of the board include the low-power Microchip ARM Cortex-M0+ powered CPU along with Microchip crypto-authentication; a 868 MHz antenna; a Telit GPS module with embedded antenna; and MEMS accelerometer and gyroscope sensors which provide extra functionality for tracking and monitoring performance.

The Aris board is a complete hardware/software platform built around the high-performance Renesas Synergy S7 Series microcontroller, which features an ARM Cortex-M4 processor running at 240 MHz with 4 MB of code Flash and 640 KB SRAM memory. The board is an all-purpose tool with an Arduino R3 compatible footprint and connections, as well as Arduino extension shields that can be used for implementing extra functionality hardware features.

Aris communicates with other devices and the cloud via Ethernet 10/100 or USB, and offers wireless connectivity via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth Smart (BLE) and NFC protocols. Sensing capability includes temperature and humidity devices, and motion detection is provided by an accelerometer and two-axis gyroscope connected via the SPI bus. Other onboard devices include 512 MB of serial Flash and 32 MB of SDRAM memory, as well as an energy harvesting NFC Forum Type 2 tag with field detection pin and I2C interface, and a multi-touch 4/5-wire resistive touchscreen controller with proximity sensing. The board also provides interaction and access via the GPIO pins, LEDs and pushbuttons. Development process functions for the boards include the onboard J-Link debugger, support for crypto-bootloaders, and over-the-air (OTA) firmware updates. Engineers are able to focus on application development using the various helpful features available on the Aris platform, including the Renesas Eclipse Embedded Studio (e2 Studio), which is the implemented integrated development environment (IDE).

The Arrow SmartEverything LION SoM and Arrow SmartEverything ARIS IoT board are available now from RS.
