Analog Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ:ADI) introduced today a suite of comprehensive development kits enabling manufacturers of industrial equipment to easily add remote sensing and monitoring capabilities to their Internet of Things and Big Data products via a scalable wireless network. The wireless sensor development kits significantly reduce the time and effort required to move designs from proof-of-concept to production release. The out-of-the-box kits allow engineers to establish a working wireless sensor system in as little as 15 minutes to report and analyze remotely various types of sensor data, such as temperature, humidity and motion/vibration.

Along with two multi-sensor-node boards, the demo kits include a base station connector, an emulator platform, and a full-featured software package that includes a robust communications protocol stack and rich graphical user interface. The bill-of-materials for the multi-sensor boards is comprised of an integrated RF transceiver and ARM Cortex M3 microcontroller (ADuCRF101) as well as multiple sensor elements that include the industry’s lowest power triple-axis accelerometer (ADXL362).

The base station connector and emulator platform contained in the kits allow users to interface directly to a local PC for network settings management and real-time sensor data review. The software suite includes ADI’s easy to use ADRadioNet software, a scalable, low-power, multi-hop wireless communications network protocol with an extremely small code footprint.

During the coming months, ADI plans to make additional announcements regarding third-party RF module offerings and extended software/cloud services for the wireless sensor development kits.
