To address the growing market of Internet of things, Axeda and ARM have co-developed the Axeda Go kit for ARM mbed. Axeda Go guides developers through the steps for connecting an mbed board, provisioning an mbed device on the Axeda Machine Cloud and installing sample code into an mbed workspace. Axeda Go kit save time, cost and reduce the design complexity.
ARM Cortex-M3 based platforms which are featured on mbed.org are compatible with the Axeda Machine Cloud. Axeda says by allowing modules and microcontrollers to quickly and easily integrate with the Axeda Machine Cloud, the Axeda Ready and Axeda Go programs extend the reach of the ‘Internet of Things’, broaden options available to customers, and reduce the cost and complexity of connecting.
“With the advent of microcontrollers, both the reach of the ecosystem and the variety of use-cases are dramatically extended,” said David Canavan, executive vice president of business development at Axeda. “With more intelligence residing within the machine, developers can focus resources on creating application-level differentiation. Now more than ever, with Axeda Ready and Axeda Go organizations have a fully integrated solution for fast, cost-effective entry into the Internet of Things.”
“The Axeda Go QuickStart Kit, combined with ARM mbed and ARM Cortex-M processors, will help companies to create exciting and intelligent ARM-based products that quickly connect with the Internet of Things,” said Simon Ford, director, IoT Platforms, ARM. “The Axeda Ready Program gives companies an easy way to jumpstart IoT and M2M programs and enables rapid innovation so they can differentiate their products easily and quickly. We look forward to seeing both the Kit and the Program helping to produce the next generation of energy-efficient, smart technology.”
“Across all industries and geographies, the biggest challenge we see is for organizations to find simpler and faster ways to develop an IoT solution. The offer from Axeda and ARM Holdings will help developers and businesses accelerate IoT solution development with a suite of capabilities extending from devices on the edge of the network, to developer tools, to cloud applications and services,” said Dan Shey, Practice Director, ABI Research.
