Embedded World 2017
SYS TEC Electronic (Germany) has developed a freely programmable IoT (Internet of Things) chip for a direct cloud connection without a gateway. It comes with an CANopen interface.
Electronics service provider SYS TEC Electronic has developed a plug-in computer core for cloud connection (IoT chip), which is freely programmable by users. Unlike other IoT chip components, the 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 IoT chip is suitable for use in Industry 4.0 applications and for connecting devices/machines to the cloud. The benefits of the chip lie in its use, security, and cloud connection, said the company. On the chip are libraries and protocols such as CANopen, MQTT, or Modbus available, 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 connect directly 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. The product delivers M2M communication and will be unveiled to the public for the first time at the Embedded World 2017 trade fair from March 14 to 16 in Nuremberg, Germany.
