NXP Delivers Framework For Innovators Developing Novel And Secure IoT Applications


Robust wireless connectivity, security, and associated expertise is critical to the development of any successful commercial production IoT system. NXP Semiconductors N.V. (NASDAQ:NXPI) is announcing the Modular IoT Framework that offers professional development teams a head start in building innovative and secure IoT applications. Using the framework as a starting point, versus building a platform from individual components, can save time and expense by minimizing the scope and complexity involved with the integration of security and connectivity.

The Modular IoT Framework offers flexibility to mix and match NXP's embedded hardware and software technologies spanning the vast array of capabilities required to develop and deploy interoperable IoT systems with edge devices, gateways, connectivity, security, and commissioning.  Framework components are tested and verified for ZigBee and Thread connectivity, as well as cloud communications through Wi-Fi, Ethernet, cellular and LoRa™, enabling access to Amazon Web Services (AWS) and other cloud platform services.  

"The NXP Modular IoT Framework gives Rigado the ability to quickly define, integrate, and iterate the IoT system features required by our customers via a production ready IoT platform with documented interfaces and pre-integrated connectivity and security," said Ben Corrado, CEO of Rigado. "With many of our IoT customers focused on reducing risk and time to market, the NXP framework enables us to quickly iterate and get the right mix of industry leading hardware, software and connectivity capabilities to commercial production before our competitors."

Today, developers can access the initial implementation of the framework as an Integrated Development Experience defined by targeted IoT use cases which includes a commercial-ready wireless connected platform, plus all of the necessary components, documentation and support required to be up and running with a base level securely connected production platform in minutes. By pre-integrating these capabilities into comprehensive, compatible, developer-ready Integrated Development Experiences, NXP is equipped to drive rapid time to market for IoT installations in smart cities, smart industries, agriculture and oil and gas markets.

"With global agriculture struggling to continue feeding the world's population and smart agriculture presenting a unique set of environmentally sustainable solutions, we knew we wanted to act quickly and decisively," said Jay Carlson, CTO at Solvz, manufacturer of internet-connected precision agriculture products.  "The NXP IoT framework and advanced edge devices bring a welcomed advantage when developing internet-connected products; by having a vast majority of the middleware and even application software in place, we can bring products to market much faster than using traditional development patterns. This is vital as the 2017 growing seasons rapidly approach."

"There has been a heavy emphasis in the market on bringing up  extended  cloud capabilities to support the growth of the  IoT, but there is still a significant void when it comes to expertise required for developing the security, wireless connectivity and commissioning infrastructure required to get the plethora of IoT edge devices connected to the cloud," said Denis Cabrol, senior director for  solutions at NXP.  "Acquiring proficiency in these areas can take years and integrating appropriate security and connectivity can add  years of development time. NXP's proven Modular IoT Framework drastically accelerate time to market by reducing the effort, time and expertise required to develop and connect the embedded side of fully functional and secure IoT systems."

The framework is shipping today via an Integrated Development Experience  targeting commercial lighting and building automation use cases which includes: 

  • Modular edge node platform with Thread and ZigBee support
  • Modular IoT Gateway with support for Thread and ZigBee, Wi-Fi and Ethernet, and a secure element
  • NFC based device commissioning
  • Smart phone app reference design for device control via cloud
  • Cloud service reference design on Amazon Web Services, and cloud connectivity reference design using MQTT and CoAP

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
