Distributor Avnet Memec – Silica has launched the Avnet MicroZed Industrial IoT Starter Kit, an out-of-the-box system backed by industry-leading solutions from IBM, Wind River and Xilinx, designed to simplify customers’ prototype and development efforts.

The platform is based on Avnet’s MicroZed System-on-Module (SoM) with a Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC from Xilinx and pluggable sensor solutions from Maxim Integrated and STMicroelectronics. The kit integrates the IBM Watson IoT Platform agent on top of a custom-configured, certified image of the Wind River Pulsar Linux operating system, now standard on MicroZed and PicoZed System-on-Modules. Using a standard MQTT messaging protocol, IBM’s Watson IoT Platform agent enables registered, secure connection to the Watson IoT Platform and additional cloud services and applications from the IBM Bluemix portfolio. These provide a rich palette of composable services to rapidly enhance IoT solutions with cognitive capabilities.
