Earlier this year, NXP announced the Rapid IoT prototyping kit, a comprehensive, secure and power-optimized solution designed to simplify and accelerate development of IoT end nodes for consumer, commercial and industrial markets. Rapid IoT combines optimized hardware design and trusted security with pre-programmed applications that help get users up and running within minutes of opening the box. The kit is extendable through a docking station and the Mikro-Elektronika Click board™ range to create a virtually limitless number of applications.
Also available is Rapid IoT Studio, a complimentary drag-and-drop style online IDE which allows innovators to easily create their applications, even without embedded coding experience. Rapid IoT Studio allows simultaneous creation of firmware for the embedded device, a mobile app and cloud connectivity and comes with complimentary IoT Cloud services or the option to take source code to another cloud of choice. Automatic source code generation for NXP’s MCUXpresso, a comprehensive and cohesive set of software development tools including an SDK, IDE, and Config Tools, further helps to provide a fast and easy transition for developers.
The Rapid IoT prototyping kit is in production now and available from US$49.99. What will you build?
