Industrial IoT starter kit launched by Avnet
An out of the box industrial IoT starter kit from Avnet is designed to simplify prototype and development efforts, while providing an easy transition to production.
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 also integrates the IBM Watson IoT Platform agent on top of a custom configured certified image of Wind River’s Pulsar Linux operating system.
Using the standard MQTT messaging protocol, secure connection is provided to the Watson IoT Platform and additional cloud services, as well as applications from the IBM Bluemix portfolio.
“The market for IoT connected systems is exploding, but ensuring that all the pieces of an edge to enterprise solution work properly requires a broad range of technologies and expertise,” said Eric Williams, Avnet’s vice president, IoT.
The Avnet Industrial IoT Starter Kit includes: a MicroZed 7010 SoM; a MicroZed Arduino carrier card; pluggable sensors, including a motion and environmental sensor board from STMicroelectronics and a thermocouple-to-Digital Pmod sensor module from Maxim Integrated; Ethernet, USB and power cables; and a free trial of IBM Bluemix services.
