Analog Devices Inc. (ADI) has rolled out what it describes as a line-up of comprehensive development kits that allow manufacturers of industrial equipment to easily add remote sensing and monitoring capabilities to their Internet of Things and Big Data products through a scalable wireless network. According to the company, the wireless sensor development kits promise to cut 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 analyse remotely various types of sensor data such as temperature, humidity and motion/vibration, added ADI.

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 BOM for the multi-sensor boards is comprised of an integrated RF transceiver and ARM Cortex M3 MCU (ADuCRF101) as well as multiple sensor elements that include the industry's lowest power triple-axis accelerometer (ADXL362), continued the company.

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.

The EV-ADRN-WSN-1Z includes two multi-sensor bunch node boards (ADuCRF101), one base station connector and one emulator platform for development and debugging. The EV-ADRN-WSN-2Z features two multi-sensor cluster node boards (ADF7024 + Renesas RL78G13 MCU), one base station connector (ADF7024 + Renesas RL78G13 MCU) and one emulator platform for development and debugging. Both are available for $349 each.
