July 01, 2016 // By Graham Prophet
Conrad Business Supplies has the XDK 110 prototyping platform which, the distributor says, provides developers and designers with a fast and cost-effective solution for creating and testing new devices and technologies for the Internet of Things (IoT).

The XDK 110 is a cross-domain hardware and software kit from Bosch Connected Devices and Solutions GmbH (Reutlingen, Germany). It includes various MEMS sensors for measuring acceleration, rotation and magnetic fields, as well as humidity, pressure, temperature, acoustic and digital light. The XDK 110 provides a means of creating and testing new devices and technologies for the Internet of Things (IoT) and enables a fast start to mass production. The XDK also includes a microcontroller (ARM Cortex M3 core), integrated antennas, a micro SD card slot and a rechargeable battery. Multiple wireless technologies ensure connectivity and access to the Internet. The included software development environment and operating system offer access to different API layers, which allow the user to program at their preferred depth.

 

Housed a package measuring 60 x 40 x 22 mm, the XDK 110 can be retrofitted to electronic devices and appliances of nearly any size. It features numerous connectivity options, including USB, Bluetooth and WLAN. This makes it easy to connect to PCs, smartphones and tablets either wirelessly or via cable. XDK functionality can also be expanded further by using the included extension board to integrate new features.

 

The XDK 110 is supported by an online community of developers and designers. This Bosch supported community provides an ideal location for discussion, the exchange of knowledge and help with the development of members’ own design ideas.
