IoT and the growth of connected ‘things’ opens up exciting
new possibilities for developers. With the ability to create ‘Smart’ nodes, we
can gather and monitor sensor data, communicate wirelessly and scale using the
Cloud. The possibilities are virtually endless: smart mass transit using NFC
for smoother access and airborne air-quality monitoring to name just a few.
However, most developers ranging from experienced engineers to inventors and
makers face a confusing number of IoT ecosystems, tools and platform choices.
Developing a Prototype or Proof of Concept (POC) can be time-consuming and
NXP’s Rapid IoT prototyping kit is designed to
meet this challenge. It’s a comprehensive and secure solution designed to
accelerate prototype and development of an IoT end node. Rapid IoT integrates
20 devices (processing, connectivity, sensors, NFC, and secure element) to
cover a wide range of applications and combines it with proven software
enablement including an easy to use GUI based web IDE (No C programming
