Spirent Communications IoT Enablement with full product life cycle

Posted by Charbax – October 30, 2016

Spirent Communications offers end to end IoT Enablement solution which facilitates full product life cycle, from development to certification testing to global deployment, service assurance. Monitoring and analytics. In the Spirent IoT demonstration at ARM TechCon, Spirent presents two key elements of their offering. First, the IoT Device Framework, which is a software SDK for developers supporting multiple IoT protocols under the same set of common APIs, so developers don’t need to worry about details of the particular protocols. The IoT Device Framework can be used for building both sensors and gateways and offers extended capabilities for security, event aggregation, analytics and more; it also integrates seamlessly with ARM Mbed OS. Second part of the demonstration is showing so called eSIM capabilities. eSIM was recently approved by GSMA as a solution for global deployment of IoT products, allowing subscription and device management across multiple global service providers without the need to change the actual SIM every time the service provider is changed. To demonstrate Spirent IoT Device Framework capabilities, Spirent implements a globally connected parking lot, utilizing IoT device framework on the parking sensors and the gateway, with Gateway connected to the LTE network with eSIM and switched at run time between multiple service providers. The demo utilizes LwM2M, MQTT and Dweet protocols.

$49 NXP Hexiwear, IoT and Wearables development platform

Posted by Charbax – October 30, 2016

Hexiwear platform enables IoT edge node and wearable development. Completely open-source and developed by MikroElektronika in partnership with NXP. The Hexiwear hardware includes the low power, high performance Kinetis K6x Microcontroller based on ARM Cortex-M4 core, the Kinetis KW40Z multimode radio SoC, supporting BLE in Hexiwear. The Hardware features included 6 on-board sensors such as Optical Heart Rate Monitor, Accelerometer and Magnetometer, Gyroscope, Temperature, Humidity, light and Pressure sensors. Hexiwear also includes Color OLED Display, Rechargeable battery and External flash memory. Hexiwear is supported with its own application for Android and iOS, so users can connect the device to the cloud straight out of the box, without any additional software development required. Hexiwear uses FreeRTOS, the Kinetis software development kit (SDK) and the Kinetis Design Studio IDE. It's available for $49 at http://www.hexiwear.com/shop/

ARM Cortex-M33, ARM Cortex-M23, ARMv8-M, TrustZone, IoT Technology Suite

Posted by Charbax – October 29, 2016

ARM launches their first ARM Cortex-M processors based on ARMv8-M architecture with ARM TrustZone technology,
IoT subsystem with ARM CoreLink system IP for fastest, lowest-risk path to silicon, Secure SoC designs fortified by TrustZone CryptoCell technology, Complete wireless solution with ARM Cordio radio IP for 802.15.4 and Bluetooth 5, Cloud-based service for secure management of IoT devices via ARM mbed Cloud, Optimized implementation on ARM Artisan IoT POP IP for the TSMC 40ULP process.

ARM Cortex-M23 and Cortex-M33 are the first embedded processors based on the ARMv8-M architecture, bringing the proven secure foundation of ARM TrustZone to the most constrained IoT nodes. The majority of the top ten global MCU suppliers have already licensed one or both processors. Lead partners include Analog Devices, Microchip, Nuvoton, NXP, Renesas, Silicon Labs and STMicroelectronics.

The highly versatile Cortex-M33 features configuration options including a coprocessor interface, DSP and floating point computation, with increased performance and efficiency relative to Cortex-M3 and Cortex-M4. The Cortex-M23 takes security to the most constrained devices, building on the standard set by Cortex-M0+ as an ultra-low power microprocessor in a tiny footprint
The new Cortex-M processors are backwards compatible with ARMv6-M and ARMv7-M architectures for direct and fast porting, accelerating product development. TrustZone CryptoCell-312 fortifies the SoC with a rich set of security features protecting the authenticity, integrity and confidentiality of code and data.

Acer Chromebook R13 on MediaTek MT8173C dual ARM Cortex-A72 and dual ARM Cortex-A53

Posted by Charbax – October 29, 2016

The first ARM Cortex-A72 powered Chromebook, the first MediaTek Chromebook, powered by the Quad-core big.LITTLE MediaTek MT8173C Dual ARM Cortex-A72 and Dual ARM Cortex-A53 with PowerVR GX6250 GPU. This Acer Chromebook R13 is priced currently at $399, available now in the USA, soon should also be available in Europe. It looks great with a full sized HDMI, USB3 port, one USB Type-C port and a headset port. I am tempted to buy one, but I think I'll wait and see which Chromebooks will be released in the days/weeks to come, especially the rumored Rockchip RK3399 Powered Samsung Chromebook Pro.
