Future electronics enhances their Nebula IoT development kit

Future Electronics announced new enhancements to their Nebula IoT development kit.  

The Nebula board has been designed to enable novices and expert developers alike to explore the vast opportunities in IoT applications, including asset tracking, energy management, fitness, lighting controls, HVAC, portable controls, security and building automation. 

This cloud-ready IoT board supposedly allows developers to quickly prototype and deploy their IoT ecosystems.

Future Connectivity Solutions VP Matthew Rotholz says, “The launch of the Nebula IoT Development Kit has been a fantastic success. 

“Customers have found that the out-of-the-box experience has been simple and easy to use.”

The Nebula board supports applications development through the Cypress WICED (Wireless Internet Connectivity for Embedded Devices) Studio development platform. 

Wireless connectivity is supported by the Murata 1DX module, which is powered by the Cypress CYW4343W Wi-Fi and BT/BLE combo SoC.

Nebula is equipped with 4 different interfaces to access the STM32F429 peripherals, enabling developers to create any IoT application: Arduino compatible shield, mikroBUS socket, Pmod Connector/Interface and USB. 

The Nebula board also offers easy hardware expandability through a large number of standardized add-on boards. 

Each one focuses on a different application such as motor control and environmental sensors and includes the wireless connectivity to enable IoT development. These add-on boards will also be available for purchase from Future Electronics.

“The addition of six compatible shields provides our customers with many different sensor platforms to design with, including four Mikroelektronika click boards targeted for humidity, proximity and temperature related applications,” said Rotholz.

Future Electronics is globally integrated, with one worldwide IT infrastructure providing real-time inventory availability and access while enabling full integration of its operations, sales and marketing worldwide.
