Based on a Renesas Synergy S7 MCU with 240 MHz ARM Cortex-M4 core, the ARIS board is aimed at IoT operations. A 3-axis accelerometer and 3-axis gyroscope deliver position and motion sensing information; humidity and temperature sensors provide environmental feedback. Communication with other devices and the Cloud is enabled via an Ethernet 10/100 port, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE 4.1/4.2) and Wi-Fi b/g/n support. NFC tag functionality is also included along with a crypto bootloader and support for over-the-air (OTA) firmware updates.
The Renesas Synergy Platform helps accelerate IoT designs by making it easier and quicker to start development with a fully qualified and optimised combination of hardware and software that encourages innovation and product differentiation. The combination of the Arrow ARIS board and Renesas Synergy software platform elements enables developers. TheSynergy Software platform includes an operating system, a variety of qualified stacks, libraries and APIs that simplify and speed up the development process.
Arrow comments, “Product developers want to devote their resources to the elements of their application that differentiate them from their competitors. The combination of the Arrow ARIS board and Renesas Synergy Platform allows developers to get started quickly and concentrate on their own area of specialism rather than having to recreate the basic building blocks.”
