Arrayent Announces Cloud Connect Development Kit for Texas Instruments SimpleLink™ Wi-Fi® Platforms for Internet of Things Applications

Arrayent (www.arrayent.com), the emerging leader in virtualization technology for the Internet of Things, today announced its Connect Development Kit for Texas Instruments (TI) SimpleLink™ Wi-Fi® CC3200 and CC3100 platforms for Internet of Things applications. The Development Kit enables designers to rapidly create a virtualized product hosted in Arrayent's Connect Cloud. The virtualized product can then be monitored and controlled from anywhere in the world via web service APIs.

"Arrayent's device virtualization technology has been adopted by a number of top tier consumer brands that are bringing connected products to market," said Amichai Ron, general manager of Wireless Connectivity Solutions at TI. Mr. Ron added, "the SimpleLink Wi-Fi CC3200 wireless MCU with the onboard Arrayent Connect Agent is a complete Internet-on–a-chip™, in that it incorporates Wi-Fi plus a MCU to handle both IoT cloud connectivity and end product functionality. The Arrayent Connect Development kit will help our mutual customers accelerate their connected product time to market."

"We see growing interest in adding Wi-Fi connectivity into consumer products, especially among home appliance manufacturers," said Abid Hussain, Arrayent's vice president of Marketing. Mr. Hussain went on to say, "with the ease of use and low power modes that TI is talking about, it is now becoming compelling for product manufacturers to build Wi-Fi into all of their high volume products."

The Arrayent Development Kit contains the Arrayent Connect Agent, a cross-platform C library that simplifies device connectivity to the Arrayent Cloud. On the Cloud side, the Kit consists of an Arrayent Cloud user account, Arrayent web applications for configuring device data models and monitor and controlling connected devices, and a demonstration embedded application that leverages the Arrayent Connect Agent.

Developers can use the sample embedded application and an Arrayent web application called the Utility App to monitor and control LEDs and push buttons on the TI SimpleLink Wi-Fi CC3200 LaunchPad evaluation board. Developers can then use the Arrayent Configurator web application to define their own device data model in the Arrayent Cloud and implement an embedded application that supports that data model. Arrayent provides the source code of its demonstration embedded application as a starting point. Once the data model has been implemented in the Arrayent Cloud and the embedded application has been modified to implement that data model, developers can go back to the Utility App to test out their new connected product prototype. It is not uncommon for engineers to get a simple prototype working in a single day.

Availability:

TI’s SimpleLink Wi-Fi CC3200 LaunchPad evaluation kit is available now through TI eStore and TI authorized distributors. The Arrayent Connect Development Kit is available for download to qualified customers by contacting [email protected].

The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
In his keynote at 19th Cloud Expo, Sheng Liang, co-founder and CEO of Rancher Labs, discussed the technological advances and new business opportunities created by the rapid adoption of containers. With the success of Amazon Web Services (AWS) and various open source technologies used to build private clouds, cloud computing has become an essential component of IT strategy. However, users continue to face challenges in implementing clouds, as older technologies evolve and newer ones like Docker c...
The now mainstream platform changes stemming from the first Internet boom brought many changes but didn’t really change the basic relationship between servers and the applications running on them. In fact, that was sort of the point. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Gordon Haff, senior cloud strategy marketing and evangelism manager at Red Hat, will discuss how today’s workloads require a new model and a new platform for development and execution. The platform must handle a wide range of rec...

"Outscale was founded in 2010, is based in France, is a strategic partner to Dassault Systémes and has done quite a bit of work with divisions of Dassault," explained Jackie Funk, Digital Marketing exec at Outscale, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, ...
Containers, microservices and DevOps are all the rage lately. You can read about how great they are and how they’ll change your life and the industry everywhere. So naturally when we started a new company and were deciding how to architect our app, we went with microservices, containers and DevOps. About now you’re expecting a story of how everything went so smoothly, we’re now pushing out code ten times a day, but the reality is quite different.
Gone are the days when application development was the daunting task of the highly skilled developers backed with strong IT skills, low code application development has democratized app development and empowered a new generation of citizen developers. There was a time when app development was in the domain of people with complex coding and technical skills. We called these people by various names like programmers, coders, techies, and they usually worked in a world oblivious of the everyday pri...
Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications.
