The Arduino board manufacturer presented new solutions for professionals at CES 2020.
The company started this year with some important news – they are launching a new Arduino Pro platform. Here’s what the board manufacturers themselves say:
“Millions of users and thousands of companies around the world are already using Arduino as an innovative platform, so we’ve leveraged this experience to enable enterprises to quickly and securely connect remote sensors to business logic within one simple IoT application development platform: a new solution for professionals in traditional sectors seeking digital transformation through the Internet of Things. “
The company believes that the combination of an application development platform and modular hardware can achieve tangible results in just one day. In this way, companies can build, measure, and iterate without expensive consultants or lengthy integration projects.
Based on Arm Pelion technology, the latest generation Arduino solutions provide users with ease of integration and a scalable, secure and professionally supported service.
“By combining the power and flexibility of our turnkey IoT hardware with our secure, scalable and easily integrated cloud services, we are delivering something truly disruptive to our customers,” commented Arduino CEO Fabio Violante. “Among millions of Arduino customers, we’ve even seen many companies move from traditional ‘one-time’ sales to subscription-based service models, creating new revenue streams based on the Arduino IoT. Having a huge community of developers with Arduino skills is also an important plus and gives them confidence. in investing in our technology “- added Violante.
In addition, a new, more powerful Arduino Portenta family of boards was also showcased at CES 2020. The family was developed with an eye to demanding industrial applications, on the border of artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics. The boards have new standards to support modern peripherals.
The first member of the family is the Arduino Portenta H7 module (pictured above), a dual-core Arm Cortex-M7 and Cortex-M4 processor operating at 480 MHz and 240 MHz, respectively, with components in the industrial temperature range (-40 to 85 ° C).
The new Arduino Portenta H7 is now available for pre-order from the Arduino online store, with an estimated delivery date of late February 2020.
The Arduino Pro platform represents professional solutions, including:
- edge devices,
- data transmission modules (WiFi, Ethernet, LoRaWAN, Sigfox, BLE, LTE / Mobile IoT),
- Arduino gateways,
- Arduino Cloud,
- development environment Arduino Pro IDE,
- encrypted data transmission,
- additional support services.
We can say that the Arduino company is trying to create and develop its own new eco-system for professionals. More information about the Arduino Pro can be found on the manufacturer’s website.
