Future Electronics Enhances Their Popular Nebula IoT Development Kit
Montreal, Canada – August 8th, 2018 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, is pleased to announce new enhancements to their highly successful Nebula IoT Development Kit.
The Nebula™ board has been designed to enable novices and expert developers alike to explore the vast opportunities in IoT applications, including asset tracking, energy management, fitness, lighting controls, HVAC, portable controls, security and building automation. This cloud-ready IoT board allows developers to quickly prototype and deploy their IoT ecosystems.
“The launch of the Nebula IoT Development Kit has been a fantastic success,” said Matthew Rotholz, Vice President of Future Connectivity Solutions. “Customers have found that the out-of-the-box experience has been simple and easy to use.”
The Nebula board supports applications development through the Cypress WICED® (Wireless Internet Connectivity for Embedded Devices) Studio development platform. Wireless connectivity is supported by the Murata 1DX module, which is powered by the Cypress CYW4343W Wi-Fi and BT/BLE combo SoC.
Nebula is equipped with 4 different interfaces to access the STM32F429 peripherals, enabling developers to create any IoT application: Arduino™ compatible shield, mikroBUS™ socket, Pmod™ Connector/Interface and USB. The Nebula board also offers easy hardware expandability through a large number of standardized add-on boards. Each one focuses on a different application such as motor control and environmental sensors, and includes the wireless connectivity to enable IoT development. These add-on boards will also be available for purchase from Future Electronics.
“The addition of six compatible shields provides our customers with many different sensor platforms to design with, including four Mikroelektronika™ click boards targeted for humidity, proximity and temperature related applications,” said Rotholz.
