Design software, IoT centre stage at embedded world

The Internet of Things (IoT) will be a key theme of the RS Components stand at the embedded world exhibition in Nuremberg (February 26-28). In addition, specialists from the RS DesignSpark team will introduce visitors to the company’s suite of free design software.

The IoT exhibit will feature development platforms from Sony Semiconductor and Microchip Technology. Sony’s low-power SPRESENSE development platform is designed for versatility and offers many options for IoT developers, including excellent audio and imaging capabilities.

Visitors can meet the Sony team and experience SPRESENSE first hand. RS willalsobe demonstrating Microchip’s AVR-IoT development board, which offers an easy, affordable and accessible way to design and prototype IoT Node applications.

More IoT innovations will be featured on an IoT Connected Wall, showcasing products available from RS for IoT development.

The RS DesignSpark engineering platform will be another key feature of the stand, with specialists on hand to demonstrate the company’s range of free-to-download design tools and resources, and to explain the benefits and support offered by this 750,000+-strong engineering community.

Also available for free download from a unique portal on the DesignSpark website is the Zerynth IoT development environment, which simplifies IoT development by providing an easy and efficient way to program the most popular 32-bit microcontrollers in Python or hybrid C/Python, and connect them to the top Cloud infrastructures.

Zerynth will run a demonstration on the RS stand in collaboration with Cypress to show how to connect Cypress boards to the Cloud in simple Python and use a blockchain for secure communication.

There will also be a new example of the Zerynth AWS IoT library. The code example allows data to be sent to the Cloud in just 15 lines of simple Python. The demo has been prepared with the XinaBox xChip development boards and Zerynth Studio.

Zerynth will also be showcasing the popular 4ZeroPlatform, a plug-and-play data gathering, processing, and reporting solution composed of two parts – the 4ZeroBox and the 4ZeroManager.

The 4ZeroBox is a Zerynth-powered industrial microcontroller-based board, and is fully programmable in Python through Zerynth Studio. It also has a Zerynth Virtual Machine license on board, a multithreaded real-time OS tailored for IoT.

Another highlight at the RS stand will be Pi Eye. Exclusive to RS, Pi Eye is a camera that integrates with the Raspberry Pi computer to produce high-quality 3D images at a relatively low cost compared to similar solutions.

And in the ‘RS Pro’ zone there will be a real-life workbench that showcases a range of RS Pro tools and technologies.
