The free programmable, plug-in core of the electronics service provider SYS TEC electronic GmbH, from Heinsdorfergrund (Saxony), for a direct cloud connection is now available with a development kit and a first application note. This IoT Chip SE is one of the most compact controllers with cloud interface based on the STM32F4xx uC in the market.
Unlike other IoT chip devices, the company’s IoT chip SE combines sensor2cloud requirements with data preprocessing features ranging from time-critical signals to efficient control tasks. To that end, the IoT Chip SE comes with appropriate function libraries such as MQTT, Modbus and CANopen pre-installed, making it ready to use straight away.
The current development kit contains comprehensive information packages about the hardware and software. In this regard, a detailed manual, a circuit diagram for the application board and software examples is provided.
The first application note of the IoT Chip SE describes an application example of connecting a RFID reader and a LCD display to the IoT Chip SE. In addition, detailed instructions and download links explain how the obtained data can be sent to the MQTT server. The forthcoming application note will describe how the data on the MQTT server are received by the IoT Chip SE and displayed on the LCD display.
The IoT Chip SE is M2M communication at the highest level, efficient and available at a moderate cost.
