Future Electronics Announces Pre-ordering of Nebula IoT Development Kit with Cypress Semiconductor and Murata

Montreal, Canada – August 21, 2017 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, has announced the launch of their Nebula IoT Development Kit with partners Cypress Semiconductor and Murata. Kits will be available to purchase for $99 in September 2017.

The Nebula board is an IoT cloud ready board that allows developers to quickly prototype and deploy their IoT ecosystems. Wireless connectivity is supported by the Murata 1DX module, which is powered by the Cypress CYW4343W Wi-Fi and BT/BLE chipset radio.

The chip includes a 2.4 GHz WLAN IEEE 802.11 b/g/n baseband/radio and Bluetooth 4.1 support. In addition, it integrates a power amplifier (PA) that meets the output power requirements of most handheld systems, a low-noise amplifier (LNA) for best-in-class receiver sensitivity, and an internal transmit/receive (iTR) RF switch, further reducing the overall solution cost and printed circuit board area.

The board supports application development through Cypress’ WICED® (Wireless Internet Connectivity for Embedded Devices) platform.

It is equipped with 4 different interfaces to access the STM32F429 peripherals to enable developers to create any IoT application: ArduinoTM compatible shield, mikroBUSTM socket, PmodTM Connector/Interface and USB. In addition, the Nebula board explores easy hardware expandability through a large number of standardized add-on boards via these connectors. Each one focuses on a different application such as motor controls, sensors and wireless connectivity to enable IoT development. These will also be available to purchase from Future Electronics.

“The Nebula Board is a very exciting global initiative which we believe will provide differentiated and creative wireless solution possibilities to our customers,” said Matthew Rotholz, Vice President of Future Connectivity Solutions. “We are very proud to be to be partnering with both Cypress and Murata as we continue to execute on our IoT strategy.”

The NebulaTM board has been designed for novices and expert developers alike looking to explore the vast opportunities in IoT applications such as asset tracking, energy management, fitness, lighting controls, HVAC, portable controls, security and building automation.

“Cypress is excited about the opportunity to add new partner IoT platforms powered by our all-inclusive WICED SDK to enable rapid development and faster time to market for our customers,” said Michael Fortner, Cypress Regional Marketing. “Based on the very popular CYW4343W-based Murata 1DX Wi-Fi/BT module, the new Future Electronics Nebula platform delivers on this promise.”

FUTURE LIGHTING SOLUTIONS LAUNCHES LIGHTING SYSTEM CREATOR (LSC) VERSION 1.2

Montreal, QC – August 9, 2017 – Future Lighting Solutions, the world-class leader and innovator in demand creation, marketing and distribution of solid-state lighting technologies, announces significant advances in selecting a suitable driver in a solid state lighting system via the release of version 1.2 of the Lighting System Creator (LSC). The LSC design tool is available free of charge to engineers and customers worldwide.

These new enhancements enable the user to quickly evaluate the tradeoffs of a single Class 1 LED driver versus multiple Class 2 LED drivers in a luminaire design. Users now have the ability to match a selected light source to a specific driver manufacturer to increase the system warranty period when available. The LSC also supports setting of the board-to-board series or parallel interconnection priority for generating LED driver solutions.

“Design Engineers continuously face design constraints when developing next generation luminaires,” said Patrick Durand, Worldwide Technical Director at Future Lighting Solutions.  “The Lighting System Creator 1.2 provides the required flexibility to define both optimized and practical system level solutions,” added Durand.
