Arrayent Announces Cloud Connect Development Kit for Texas Instruments
SimpleLink™ Wi-Fi® Platforms for Internet of Things Applications
Arrayent Connect Development Kit for TI SimpleLink Wi-Fi enables manufacturers
to connect a TI Wi-Fi enabled product to the Internet Cloud in a day.
SAN FRANCISCO -- June 16, 2014
Arrayent (www.arrayent.com), the emerging leader in virtualization technology
for the Internet of Things, today announced its Connect Development Kit for
Texas Instruments (TI) SimpleLink™ Wi-Fi® CC3200 and CC3100 platforms for
Internet of Things applications. The Development Kit enables designers to
rapidly create a virtualized product hosted in Arrayent's Connect Cloud. The
virtualized product can then be monitored and controlled from anywhere in the
world via web service APIs.
"Arrayent's device virtualization technology has been adopted by a number of
top tier consumer brands that are bringing connected products to market," said
Amichai Ron, general manager of Wireless Connectivity Solutions at TI. Mr. Ron
added, "the SimpleLink Wi-Fi CC3200 wireless MCU with the onboard Arrayent
Connect Agent is a complete Internet-on–a-chip™, in that it incorporates Wi-Fi
plus a MCU to handle both IoT cloud connectivity and end product
functionality. The Arrayent Connect Development kit will help our mutual
customers accelerate their connected product time to market."
"We see growing interest in adding Wi-Fi connectivity into consumer products,
especially among home appliance manufacturers," said Abid Hussain, Arrayent's
vice president of Marketing. Mr. Hussain went on to say, "with the ease of use
and low power modes that TI is talking about, it is now becoming compelling
for product manufacturers to build Wi-Fi into all of their high volume
The Arrayent Development Kit contains the Arrayent Connect Agent, a
cross-platform C library that simplifies device connectivity to the Arrayent
Cloud. On the Cloud side, the Kit consists of an Arrayent Cloud user account,
Arrayent web applications for configuring device data models and monitor and
controlling connected devices, and a demonstration embedded application that
leverages the Arrayent Connect Agent.
Developers can use the sample embedded application and an Arrayent web
application called the Utility App to monitor and control LEDs and push
buttons on the TI SimpleLink Wi-Fi CC3200 LaunchPad evaluation board.
Developers can then use the Arrayent Configurator web application to define
their own device data model in the Arrayent Cloud and implement an embedded
application that supports that data model. Arrayent provides the source code
of its demonstration embedded application as a starting point. Once the data
model has been implemented in the Arrayent Cloud and the embedded application
has been modified to implement that data model, developers can go back to the
Utility App to test out their new connected product prototype. It is not
uncommon for engineers to get a simple prototype working in a single day.
TI’s SimpleLink Wi-Fi CC3200 LaunchPad evaluation kit is available now through
TI eStore and TI authorized distributors. The Arrayent Connect Development Kit
is available for download to qualified customers by contacting
