IoT development kit from RS Components connects to Cloud-services platform

RS Components has introduced the UrsaLeo UL-NXP1S2R2 Cloud-enabled development kit that kick-starts IoT-sensing projects by allowing users to collect and analyse data on a dashboard within minutes after unboxing.

By proving an easy Cloud services platform for IoT applications, developers are able to make products that can be considerably more flexible and provide far more functionality than would otherwise be possible.

The UrsaLeo UL-NXP1S2R2 kit contains a Silicon Labs Thunderboard™ 2 sensor module, ready to connect to UrsaLeo’s services platform in the Google Cloud. Pre-registered access helps developers get productive quickly, and start configuring their own dashboards and charts, set event-based text or email alerts, and run Google analytics. Apps and APIs are provided to help manage sensors locally, run diagnostics, and share information seamlessly with other enterprise software or third-party tools such as business intelligence applications.

Fast to start up and easy to use, the kit helps users quickly bring their ideas to life and unleash the power of remote sensing and big data in sectors such as Industry 4.0, automotive diagnostics, healthcare, and general data monitoring.

The Thunderboard 2 sensor module contains sensors for temperature, humidity, UV, ambient light, barometric pressure, indoor air quality, gas detection, a 6-axis inertial sensor, digital microphone, and a Hall sensor. The board also contains the Silicon Labs EFR32™ Mighty Gecko multi-protocol 2.4GHz radio that supports Bluetooth® Low Energy or proprietary short-range protocols, as well as Thread and ZigBee®. With a ceramic antenna integrated, and four high-brightness LEDs on-board, it is ready to power-up from a USB connection, coin cell or external battery pack.

To deliver field-ready products and minimise time to market, developers can also take advantage of UrsaLeo software development kits for porting fully developed code to custom hardware, and support for production scaling and device management.

GaN’s Ground-Floor Opportunity
The electronics industry has a major role to play in helping to save energy, by enabling better equipment and new ways of working and living that that are more efficient and environmentally friendly. Maintaining the pace of technological progress is key, but improvements become both smaller and harder to achieve as each technology matures. We can see this trend in the development of power semiconductors, as device designers seek more complex and expensive ways to reduce switching energy and RDS(ON) against silicon’s natural limitations.
