Mouser Electronics has announced a distribution agreement with RushUp, a creator of product accelerator boards for makers, developers, and high-mix/low-volume companies that want to quickly incorporate Internet of Things (IoT) technologies into their products. Through the agreement, Mouser will distribute RushUp's KITRA and JAM board solutions.
The RushUp portfolio is comprised of two product families: the KITRA, based on Samsung ARTIK IoT modules, and the JAM, based on STM32 Open Development Environment (ODE) function packs from ST Microelectronics (ST).
The KITRA boards facilitate easy integration into small devices without the extra time and cost associated with R&D and engineering validation.
The family of KITRA product accelerators includes the KITRA 520, a super-integrated, 40×40 mm general-purpose IoT platform with dual computational functionality, sensors, USB, LEDs and more.
RushUp JAM family of boards includes Cloud-JAM and Cloud-JAM L4, which allow engineers to develop with STM32 ODE and STM32 Nucleo boards in the prototype phase and go to production with JAM boards without requiring industrialisation, validation, and firmware or software development.
These product accelerators incorporate a series of STM32 Nucleo development boards into a single module to form production-grade versions of the P-NUCLEO-CLD1 and FP-CLD-AZURE STM32 ODE function packs.
The Cloud-JAM board is based on the STM3F401RE microcontroller, while the Cloud-JAM L4 is based on the STM32L476RG microcontroller.
Both boards enable engineers to connect motion and environmental sensors to the cloud, interfacing via a Wi-Fi network using SSID, password and web authentication stored in the dynamic NFC.
