The IOTA Foundation working with STMicroelectronics to create a new level of powerful, seamless and cost-effective access to the Internet of Things (IoT) functionality.
The cornerstone of this cooperation is the integration of the IOTA Tangle, a fee-free, peer-to-peer technology solution, into ST’s STM32Cube expansion software for the STM32 32-bit MCU ecosystem, the X-CUBE-IOTA1.
The relationship intends to deliver the Internet of Things integration capabilities to the ST user community, allowing customers to easily and quickly create and prototype new IoT solutions for single or multiple devices. As important, developers can work while enjoying the ability to develop systems, environments, products and services with IOTA functionality and the power of the Tangle’s distributed, highly scalable peer-to-peer network and feeless structure.
“By enabling IOTA functionalities via the X-CUBE-IOTA1 expansion software for STM32Cube software technology, developers can now easily include IOTA features and capabilities in their IoT devices and create valuable applications using the STM32 Open Development Environment, which combines the STM32 32-bit microcontroller family with other state-of-the-art ST components,” said Alessandro Cremonesi, STMicroelectronics VP System Research and Application.
The IoT-enhanced solution will give key industries such as energy, logistics and other advanced performance capabilities in critical areas, including sensing, power management, connectivity and audio. Developers using STM32 will have the ability to transmit, buy and sell relevant data through embedded technologies like Bluetooth LE at low cost, with an easy, robust solution.
“With specialized hardware playing such an integral role in the Internet of Things market adoption, it is exciting to work with such partners as ST to enhance IoT’s role as an innovation facilitator,” said Holger Köther, Director of Partner Management, IOTA Foundation.
