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.
We will present our IoT chip for the first time at the embedded world trade fair in Nuremberg from 14 to 16 March. We are looking forward to your visit. Download now your free online ticket with the Voucher code: B344322 at www.embedded-world.de/gutschein.
CANopen Source Code Protocol Stacks V5.64 available
The CANopen Master & Slave Source Code CiA 301 (order no. SO-877 and SO-877-VP) as well as CANopen Manager Source Code CiA 302 (order no. SO-1063 and SO-1063-VP) from SYS TEC, which has been well-proven in numerous applications for many years, is now available in version V5.64.
The new CANopen stack versions includes software changes as well as bugfixes, and it’s supports the new ODBuilderII software, which was also released as first Beta version.
The ODBuilderII is a Windows based configuration tool that was developed exclusively as support for the development of applications with the SYS TEC CANopen stack. The main application of the OD Builder II is the automatic generation of an Object Dictionary (OD) in the form of C source code files for a CANopen device, which then can be included seamlessly in an existing CANopen software project. Furthermore, it is possible to generate a so-called EDS file (electronic data sheet), which can be used in conjunction with various configuration tools for CANopen devices.
In addition the following target platforms and demo projects were added:
- Demo project for Infineon XMC4500 based on Keil IDE
- CAN driver support for NXP MSCAN controller was added including a demo project based on a Kinetis MKE06Z128 FRDM controller board and Keil IDE
The SYS TEC CANopen protocol software conforms to the CANopen specification CiA 301 (P/N SO-877) and CiA 302 (P/N SO-1063). The CANopen Stacks are suitable for the design of own fully-featured CANopen Slave as well as Master/Slave devices. Adapted software drivers are already available for a large number of microcontrollers. This allows an easy and quick integration in a system specific hardware and trouble-free compilation with all ANSI-C compliant compilers. Support for not yet supported microcontrollers can be implemented on request.
Customers with a valid software maintenance and service agreement (SMSA) can download the new CANopen Stack version for free based on the valid support account information. For customers without SMSA, we can offer an update - please contact us: email@example.com or call +49-3765 38600-2110.
