The iconic Smarter World Tour Truck brings Internet of Things Experience to thousands of visitor with nearly 100 stops, in 16 european countries, during the course of 2016.   NXP's Smarter World Tour is going on with its journey in Europe. It started in January 2016 in France and will travel across 16 countries in Europe. It's a highly visible, 36 tons, 2 levels, fully mobile semi-truck trailer designed by famous Luigi Colani which turns into a large and spacious mobile tradeshow. The aim ...
John Dixon - corporate marketing and IoT strategy for Freescale - explains why it's so important to secure end nodesystems and how chip vendors are key to provide reliable solutions.   Read the article published here in EETimes ...
This article was first published on embedded beat, the blog platform of Freescale.com Contributed by Joseph Yiu, Senior Embedded Technology Manager, ARM When I look back at microcontrollers from the early 21st century, it is incredible to see how far we have come. Having worked at ARM since 2001, I have witnessed an extraordinary revolution in microcontroller technologies, and this is a great credit to both my colleagues at ARM as well as our partners, such as Freescale, who have licensed A ...
Last year we teased you with details around the architecture of a new family in i.MX 6 series of applications processors that was coming soon. We talked about how it would enable highly functional, extremely secure and power efficient IoT devices that require constant connectivity and higher levels of integration with their surrounding environment. Well, it’s here! IoT, meet i.MX 6SoloX. The i.MX 6SoloX is the industry’s first applications processor to integrate an ARM® Cortex&# ...
Have you heard about Nerfinator ?   It’s safe to say that we all have fond memories of the ubiquitous Nerf gun. The low tech toy has been the inspiration for parents around the world to plead with their children to “take it outside.” Last week Freescale attended MakerFaire Romeand unveiled a decidedly high-tech version of the beloved toy that would catapult it to the top of any maker’s Christmas wish list. The souped-up Nerf gun, dubbed Nerfinator, is powered by ...

Machine to machine, machine to infrastructure, machine to environment, the Internet of Everything, the Internet of Intelligent Things, intelligent systems—call it what you want, but it’s happening, and its ...
Source: White paper from David Niewolny, Healthcare Segment Manager, Freescale Semiconductor   In the Internet of Things (IoT), devices gather and share information directly with each other and the cloud, making it possible to collect, record and analyze new data streams faster and more accurately. That suggests all sorts of interesting possibilities across a range of industries: cars that sense wear and tear and self-schedule maintenance or trains that dynamically calculate and report proj ...
The MIT Technology Review reports that SigFox, a french company, has picked the Bay Area to demonstrate its wireless network intended to make it cheap and practical to link Things to the Internet, from smoke detectors to dog collars, bicycle locks, and water pipes.   Competition will be tough for sure as big players are preparing their own solutions but should arrive a bit later than Sigfox. Race has already started to build a critical mass of connected objects.   Read the full artic ...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is seen as billions of intelligent connections that will encompass every aspect of our lives and make our world smarter, greener and safer. From smart wearables, to smart energy, homes, factories and data centers, we are bringing the IoT to life by bringing connected intelligence to the embedded technologies that are shaping the network of tomorrow. That's how we, at Freescale, see the IoT.   To the front line of the IoT Few days ago, during the Freescale Tech ...
