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 are now available to purchase for $99.
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 combo SoC.
The SoC includes a 2.4 GHz WLAN IEEE 802.11 b/g/n baseband/radio and Bluetooth 4.2 support. In addition, it integrates a high-performance power amplifier (PA), 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 1DX module size.
The Nebula board supports applications development through the Cypress WICED® (Wireless Internet Connectivity for Embedded Devices) Studio development platform.
Nebula 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 employs 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, including the 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 solutions to our customers,” said Matthew Rotholz, Vice President of Future Connectivity Solutions. “Our goal is to provide our customers with a complete IoT development environment. We currently have 4 Mikroelektronika™ click boards targeted for humidity, proximity and temperature related applications.”
The Nebula™ 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.
“Murata’s 1DX Wi-Fi and Bluetooth combo module on the Nebula board exemplifies the innovation that differentiates the company. This certified solution is designed to fit into small spaces and uses minimal external circuity. The end result allows engineers to overcome design challenges and launch the products that make IoT a reality,” stated Ghouse Mohiuddin, Business Development Manager.
“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 combo module, the new Future Electronics Nebula platform delivers on this promise.”
