Future Electronics: Nebula IoT development kit now available

Future Electronics has announced the launch of their Nebula IoT Development Kit with partners Cypress Semiconductor and Murata. Kits are now available to purchase. 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, a low-noise amplifier for best-in-class receiver sensitivity, and an internal transmit/receive 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: Arduino compatible shield, mikroBUSsocket, Pmod 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.
