Internet of Tiny Linux, Google IoT on ARM Cortex-A5 memory constrained device

Posted by Charbax – November 5, 2018

Nicolas Pitre of Linaro and his team have worked to reduce the size of the Linux kernel and user space binaries to make them suitable for very small IoT applications to enable the Internet of Tiny Linux. Here at Linaro Connect Vancouver 2018, Linaro shows mainline Linux kernel for IoT devices, running with as little as 4MB of RAM here for example Google IoT.

Linux microPlatform, secure IoT updates with Foundries.io and Toradex

Posted by Charbax – October 13, 2018

At Linaro Connect Vancouver 2018, Foundries.io and Toradex discuss Linux microPlatform, what microPlatform is and how it helps Toradex to build their next generation Software Platform.

Linux microPlatform is an open source, minimal, secure, updatable Operating System based on OpenEmbedded / Yocto Project. Toradex ports the microPlatform to its Arm-based System on Modules and it uses it as the basis for its future Software Planform called Torizon.

Linux microPlatform modularized the embedded software stack utilizing Docker Containers, and so it provides a robust and simple to update platform. It includes a secure Uptane-compliant over-the-air update solution using OSTree.

Founderies.io provides continuous updates to Linux microPlatform, as they believe the latest software is the most secure software.

Toradex also elaborates on its plans to simplify developers’ lives with its Torizon platform leveraging Linux microPlatforms, such as simplifying application development, enabling a modern DevOps workflow and easing migration from Windows-based systems.

Sanechips (ZTE subsidiary) NB-IoT RoseFinch7100 ARM Cortex-M0

Posted by Charbax – September 16, 2018

RoseFinch7100 has passed the certification of China Mobile and China Telecom, and it has been widely deployed in gas meters, household appliances, municipal management (parking, manhole cover, street lamp, environmental monitoring) and other industries.

The demonstration will show the RoseFinch7100 running the Zephyr RTOS with integrated IP/TCP/UDP/COAP/MQTT/LWM2M protocols, IoT Cloud Engine and FOTA services. Sanechips has worked closely with the Linaro IoT and Embedded (LITE) group to enable upstream Zephyr support for the chip. The Sanechips Development Environment (SDE), based on OpenOCD (Open On-Chip Debugger) and Eclipse, will also be demonstrated.

Produced on a 55nm ultra low power technology process, the RoseFinch7100 is specifically designed for intensive low power IoT applications, such as cellular LPWA (low power wide area). The chip integrates the low power/high performance CEVA-X1 DSP IP for baseband and offers low sleep current of 2uA at 2V, which can provide an extended battery life. It also offers Cloud-Chip Global Security based on Trusted Zone, up to 30 GPIOs and all R14 Frequency Bands, and no need for an external MCU as the RoseFinch7100 can provide strong connectivity for most LPWA applications independently.

Smart Tires by Silent Sensors, Energy Harvesting, RFID for rubbers elastomers, polymers

Posted by Charbax – August 1, 2018

Marcus Taylor, CEO of Silent Sensors (http://silentsensors.com) demonstrates their Energy Harvesting and RFID products for use in rubbers elastomers and polymers, with a special focus on tires. Tires, first and foremost, are safety products. About 20% of all accidents on the road are caused by underinflated tires. Underinflated tires also translate into increased fuel consumption and increased tire wear. All the components they use have to be automotive grade.

At the IDTechEx Show! Europe, Silent Sensors introduced a new supercapacitor that is very flexible and able to withstand high temperatures, which is necessary for tire manufacture and production.

CAP-XX develops industry’s first 3 Volt thin prismatic supercapacitors

Posted by Charbax – July 25, 2018

CAP-XX provides peak power support to 3V coin cell batteries and eliminates need for 2.7V LDO regulator for less expensive, smaller, more energy-efficient designs with extended battery life

CAP-XX is a leader in supercapacitors that deliver peak power to support or replace batteries, announced at the IDTechEx Show! Berlin 2018 that it has developed the industry’s first 3V thin, prismatic supercapacitors. The company will deploy its 3V technology first in thin prismatic form to meet demand for small, inexpensive, energy-efficient power solutions for thin wearables, key FOBs and other IoT devices. CAP-XX will then integrate the 3V technology into its larger prismatic supercapacitors, automotive modules and other products for high-energy, high-power applications.

Silicon Labs Dynamic Multiprotocol Zigbee, Bluetooth, also Z-Wave and other

Posted by Charbax – July 18, 2018

Silicon Labs demonstrates their latest Internet of Things devices including their Dynamic Multiprotocol support based on their Mighty Gecko ARM Cortex-M4 platform supporting Zigbee and Bluetooth in parallel running Micrium RTOS with just a few microsecond delay when switching. Micrium RTOS is the number 1 in the commercial RTOS market. Silicon Labs also shows their Bluetooth 5 support, voice over Bluetooth LE, sensor to cloud connectivity, apple homekit, Bluetooth 5 can do 4 times longer distance or 2 times more bandwidth compared with Bluetooth 4. Silicon Labs shows their Bluetooth Mesh system using their Mighty Gecko development board that also features a memory LCD display. Silicon Labs acquired Sigma Designs Z-Wave Business, where Z-Wave goes into sub-Ghz so there is less noise going through walls, reaching longer distances compared with Bluetooth and Zigbee and also able to make it a Mesh. They now have the 500 series chip and they are going to announce the 700 series ARM Cortex-M4 chip running at lower power providing a longer range. Silicon Labs has shipped hundreds of millions of devices thus far based on their Mighty Gecko, Bluetooth, and Zigbee products and they also have shipped over 100 million devices using Z-Wave.
