ON Semiconductor – A New Modular Approach to Industrial IoT


on-semiconductor         NPI_LOGO
ON Semiconductor has embraced a ‘mix-and-match’ concept with its IoT Development Kit (IDK), which differentiates itself through modular construction. There are a variety of shields (featuring different sensing, actuation and communication functions) that can be attached to the IDK’s baseboard. With this kit, engineers are given almost limitless scope to prototype and evaluate IoT systems that are aligned with their original design criteria.

The IDK’s connectivity resources cover Wi-Fi, SIGFOX, and 802.15.4 MAC- based. In terms of wireline communication, there are CAN and Ethernet addressing industrial control and factory automation. Through the sensor shields available, engineers can benefit from ambient light, proximity, biochemical, and motion sensing capabilities, as well as heart rate monitoring. Actuator shields cater to the driving of LED strings, stepper motors and brushless DC (BLDC) motors. Furthermore, ON provides access to one of the broadest power management portfolios in the industry with multi-faceted leadership in several areas such as energy efficiency, idle mode power, power density, size and cost efficiency, which has enabled each shield to be optimized for leading power performance.

This kit is fully supported from sensor to server. The software provides access to a suite of development tools including: development toolchain, debugger, libraries, and connectivity protocols.
