IoT chip for a direct cloud connection without a gateway


Insert – Ready – Cloud Solution! Our freely programmable IoT chip for a direct cloud connection without a gateway comes to the Embedded World trade fair.

In the last few years, the "Internet of Things" has developed to a fixed size in everyday life. More and more devices are networked, as well as PCs and smartphones, even cars, televisions and refrigerators can now send and receive data over the Internet. In industry, processes are increasingly being digitized in order to be able to access the data independently of the location and time. Communication via network structures eliminates the need for permanently installed lines, instead of permitting a flexible, configurable exchange of measurement data and control commands between different devices.

We have adopted the IoT theme and developed a plug-in computer core for cloud connection (IoT chip) which is freely programmable by users. The result is an easy-to-integrate IoT chip for use in Internet of Things/Industry 4.0 applications and the connecting devices/machines to the cloud as these fields require.

Our solution is freely programmable. Unlike other IoT chip devices, our IoT chip combines sensor2cloud requirements with data preprocessing features ranging from time-critical signals to efficient control tasks. To that end, the IoT chip comes with appropriate function libraries pre-installed, making it ready for use straight away.

The benefits of our IoT chip lie in its use, security and cloud connection. On the chip are libraries and protocols such as MQTT, Modbus or CANopen which are ready to use immediately.

The templates supplied in the source code are available to users as a starting point for their own customization. I²C and SPI make it possible to directly connect actuators and sensors.

This allows the entire measurement, control and regulation to be handled on the IoT chip. As a result, the chip works independently of the cloud – whereas with other IoT chip devices, these processes typically take place in the cloud. There is also no additional gateway required for cloud connection.

Our IoT chip delivers M2M communication at the highest level, as well as being efficient and available at a moderate cost.
