STOCKHOLM, May 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Thingsquare today announced Thingsquare Code, to help connect products such as
light bulbs, thermostats, and smart city systems to smartphone apps.
Thingsquare Code is the world's first online interactive development
environment (IDE) for the Internet of Things and works with a number of recent
chips that target the emerging Internet of Things market, from leading chip
vendors Texas Instruments and ST Microelectronics.
Thingsquare Code lets developers of Internet of Things products program their
wireless chips from a web browser. Before Thingsquare Code, developing
Internet of Things products used to be time-consuming and would require
extensive expertise on behalf of the developer. With Thingsquare Code,
developers can quickly prototype and validate their products, directly from
their web browsers.
"The latest IP/6LoWPAN solutions for IoT applications from Texas Instruments
(TI) will be ready for Thingsquare Code," said Oyvind Birkenes, general
manager, Wireless Connectivity Solutions, TI. "Thingsquare opens the door to
developers from various disciplines to connect their products faster to the
Internet. This is truly revolutionary."
"Thingsquare Code already works with a number of microprocessor platforms,
including the ARM Cortex M3 and the TI MSP430," said Thingsquare chief
architect Adam Dunkels. "With our secure cloud connectivity solution, devices
can be programmed without cables and without having to install compiler
toolchains, which is a large step forward for IoT programming."
Thingsquare Code is currently available for beta testers and will be available
for use with a number of wireless chips for the emerging Internet of Things
market developed by Texas Instruments and ST Microelectronics. For more info,
Thingsquare is the leading provider of open-source software for the Internet
of Things. Founded in 2012 with the aim to simplify the Internet of Things,
