Creator Ci40 is a modular system that is easy to assemble and even easier to code. Developers can use it to prototype the hardware needed for an IoT application in five easy steps.
The Kickstarter campaign is aiming to raise £20,000 with pricing for the kit currently set at £80 (a £10 discount is offered to the first 200 backers).
The new Creator comes in a compact box with everything needed to build the next wireless IoT application including:
— A high-performance, low-power microcomputer acting as an IoT hub and featuring a new MIPS-based chip optimized for IoT applications; the microcomputer can run a number of Linux-based operating system, including OpenWrt, Debian as well as Brillo from Google
— Two battery-powered 6LoWPAN Clicker expansion boards with a mikroBUS socket for adding sensors
— Three Click companion boards – a temperature sensor, a motion sensor and a relay switch (with hundreds more available from MikroElektronika)
— FlowCloud: a complete cloud platform for connecting devices to the internet, enabling easy product registration and updates as well as access to partner-enabled services
— Open source software frameworks, network stacks and cloud connectivity
