SparkFun, Cypress and Digi-Key Collaborate on IoT for Makers
12 March, 2018
"Designers can rely on the Pioneer IoT Add-on Shield and its full documentation and resources to quickly take their projects from ideation to implementation"
Cypress Semiconductor, SparkFun, and Digi-Key, have collaborated to deliver a joint IoT development platform that allows makers and engineers to prototype sensor-to-cloud solutions quickly and easily. SparkFun have created an add-on shield that simplifies system designs with the Cypress PSoC® 6 microcontroller (MCU), which is purpose-built for the IoT. The platform is available at Digi-Key and SparkFun.
“Designers can rely on the Pioneer IoT Add-on Shield and its full documentation and resources to quickly take their projects from ideation to implementation,” said Glenn Samala, CEO at SparkFun Electronics. The wireless sensor network offers the flexibility to use any sensor or any wireless protocol and is expandable, future-proof, and economical.
“The Pioneer IoT Add-On Shield from SparkFun gives designers a fast way to prototype designs and take advantage of the ultra-low-power PSoC 6 MCU architecture,” said Jim Davis, Marketing Director of the MCU Business Unit at Cypress. SparkFun and Cypress have also put together example projects detailed in the Hookup Guide.
“We are excited to work together with SparkFun and Cypress to make it easy to get started with PSoC 6, one of the lowest power, high-performance, flexible, and secure IoT solutions available today,” said David Stein, Vice President, Global Supplier Management at Digi-Key.
