Anyone who enjoys creating Internet of Things projects may be interested in a new range of building blocks which have been specifically created for IoT development and prototyping, designed by Pure Engineering.
The new building blocks have been built to simplify the development of low power wireless IoT hardware and software sensor prototypes providing a modular sensor architecture that is easy to modify without the need for any soldering to take place.
Watch the video below to learn more about the new system which has been created by the company based in Santa Barbara California.
Simplifying development of low power wireless IoT hardware and software sensor prototypes with a modular sensor architecture. The Internet of Things (IoT) is evolving at a rapid pace, but there is one problem slowing its progression: low cost flexible development hardware.
Current prototyping hardware is cost prohibitive given how integral it is to designing IoT products. In order to unleash the full potential IoT has to offer, it is essential to offer hardware at a lower cost to give access to a wider audience of developers. This is where PUREmodules comes in! We have simplified our hardware to the basic components and by doing so minimized cost and complexity.
PUREmodules are the building blocks for IoT connected smart sensors. PUREmodules help you bring your vision to life. With PUREmodules, there is never any need to solder, breadboard, or wire anything. PUREmodules are quick to assemble and enable you to easily try out your ideas. Once you have the PUREmodules you need, simply snap them together, use our sample code, or DIY and write your own, and you are good to go! PUREmodules will simplify IoT development on a massive scale and set this technology loose on the world in a way that up until now has been impossible.
The Core Module is the brain of the system. For your support of this kickstarter one of the rewards is that you will receive the nRF52 Core Module. We selected the nRF52832 SOC for a number of reasons. First, is because of it’s compatibility with Arduino and a number of other open source frameworks. We know many of you love Arduino for its simplicity and power, and so do we. We will be providing support for Contiki OS and Arduino for this kickstarter release. What’s also great about the nRF52832 SOC is it supports the following major IoT operating systems:
• Contiki OS
• mbed OS
Additional Software frameworks supported
• Arduino IDE
• Bluetooth 5 ready, with meshing capability
• nRF52832 SOC
• Onboard Antenna
• Internal Temperature Sensor
• LIS2DE12TR Accelerometer
• 1225 Coin Cell holder
• 2.4Ghz Antenna
• One While LED
• Two User buttons
• Three output expansion ports, two I2C and one SPI
• Two input expansion ports, one I2C and one SPI
• Shipping with BLE bootloader.
• Update firmware over the Air.
• Optional JTAG programming connection via Tag-Connect
• One of the I2C expansion ports has JTAG and NFC expansion options
• Total of 20 GPIO is available
There are endless applications with the nRF52 Core module, but a few common applications include:
• BLE Beacon for Asset tracking
• BLE packet sniffer
• iBeacon and Eddystone beacons
• Motion controller BLE mouse
• Fitness step counter with BLE interface
Jump over to the Kickstarter crowdfunding website for more details and full specifications on the PUREmodules which Pure Engineering is hoping will raise just $1000 over the next 50 days to make the jump into production.
