From Digi’s blog:
We have exciting news, that we announced at the Embedded World Exhibition, in Nuremberg, Germany. Embedded World hosts engineers who want to share their knowledge, present new solutions and help others reach success. That’s why we decided to announce our collaboration with Freescale there today.
Freescale and Digi® have come together to offer the first cloud connected microcontrollers. The iDigi Device Cloud™ will be integrated into the Kinetis and ColdFire microcontroller platforms. Using the iDigi Connector, an open interface for any type of device, Kinetis and ColdFire users can access the web and mobile applications development platform and device management functionality.
The Kinetis and ColdFire platforms will come out-of-the box with cloud connectivity, making the microcontrollers more efficient. The cloud will help streamline product rollouts, upgrade and service devices with ease and provide access to manage devices remotely.
If you’re attending Embedded World, Digi will demonstrate the integration of the iDigi Device Cloud on a Kinetis K53 Tower System in Hall 1 booth 1-432. The setup shows a cloud-enabled MQX RTOS application with integrated remote device management capabilities (firmware upgrade, system reboot, system information/performance, reliability metrics and alerts) as well as cloud-based information exchange of on-board peripheral status (accelerometer, potentiometer, touch sensors, ADC, PWM, LEDs.).
Embedded World Conference is determined to offer a environment to set trends and present solutions. The conference provides the perfect platform to share our latest collaborative solution that will enhance the iDigi and Freescale experience for engineers and innovators.
And, if you’re not in attendance, keep an eye on our Facebook Page and Twitter account for information from Embedded World. We’ll be updating you on the innovative ideas that come from the community of engineers who are mapping the future.
