Intel DK50 series Internet Gateway now in distribution

September 02, 2014 // By Graham Prophet
Mouser Electronics has the Intel DK50 Series Gateway Solution for the Internet of Things (IoT). The Intel DK50 uses the Intel Galileo Arduino-certified development board which is based on the Intel Quark SoC X1000 processor.

The Intel DK50 provides internet connectivity for devices that do not directly support it, such as legacy industrial devices. Based on the Intel Galileo development board, the Intel DK50 acts as a gateway for these devices: the devices connect to the DK50 using their standard interface, while the DK50 hardware and software allows those devices access to the internet.

The DK50 comes with pre-validated firmware that delivers an application-ready platform. Firmware includes the Wind River Intelligent Device Platform XT development environment, a scalable and secure development environment that simplifies the deployment of IoT gateways. Also available is the McAfee Embedded Control Technologies, a solution that protects the integrity of embedded code while automating the enforcement of software change control policies. Both are part of the Intel Gateway Solutions for IoT, a family of solutions that allow developers to seamlessly connect legacy devices to the internet in an intelligent manner.

The Intel DK50 Gateway software is based on Wind River Linux 5.0.1. The software supports web-based configuration interfaces with programming support for Java, Lua, and OSGi. SSL security is included. Connectivity options include Cellular 2G/3G/4G, Bluetooth, serial ports, USB, VPN, ZigBee, and WiFi access point.
