Solution accelerates time-to-market for devices requiring connectivity
Micrium Inc. will showcase its recently launched Micrium® Spectrum™ portfolio at Dreamforce 2014. Micrium Spectrum simplifies design time for Internet of Things (IoT) devices by pre-engineering the necessary embedded functionality.
"Dreamforce offers us an ideal opportunity to demonstrate the ease of use that our new Micrium Spectrum portfolio brings to device development," said Jean Labrosse, CEO and president of Micrium. "Micrium Spectrum delivers years of embedded systems software and connectivity expertise in a product set developed to simplify and accelerate the design process, significantly reducing time to market."
During the show, the company will offer a workshop titled "IoT System Design with SalesForce and Micrium." The demo is built around Micrium's recently announced Micrium Spectrum offering running on a Renesas RX63N 32-bit microcontroller. It also employs 2lemetry's ThingFabricTM middleware, which provides cross-communication and data brokering to interface with Salesforce.
"The IoT offers a tremendous opportunity to device designers with its strong growth potential across consumer and industrial applications," said Christian Légaré, CTO and executive vice president of Micrium, who will lead the Dreamforce workshop. "Developers must understand the cloud and how to build Salesforce-enabled apps, but also how to actually connect sensors and deeply embedded devices to it. This demonstration will walk developers through the process of connecting a real-time ‘thing’ with the cloud, and bring the power of Micrium Spectrum and Salesforce to your embedded device."
The workshop attendees will use an electronic evaluation board running an IoT application. This evaluation board will transmit and receive data and commands to/from Salesforce.com. This workshop activity can then be extended to any type of industry and any application.
"32-bit microcontrollers are becoming a requirement for IoT devices, as they deliver the performance and memory required for complex designs," said Ritesh Tyagi, VP Marketing, of Renesas. "The RL78 and RX offer the performance and peripherals required to enable the sensing and communication necessary for achieving all-in-one connectivity solutions. Together, we're bringing leading-edge technologies to market to enable the rapidly growing IoT."
The workshop will take place on Monday, October 13 at 11am and 5pm US PT in the Internet of Things Lab #1, which will be located in the Developer Zone in Moscone West, level 2 at Dreamforce 2014. Micrium will also have a booth in the Internet of Things Lab throughout the show.
