On Tuesday, the IoT application development platform was announced at CES2020 in Las Vegas. It has introduced a new family low-power Arduino Portanta H7, the Portanta chip for various device applications.

Arduino has achieved a prominent position as a developer and developer of an innovative platform for IoT product connectivity.

The open source microcontroller system facilitates the process of creating modular devices for operating smart and connected everyday objects.

The combination of a low-code application development platform with standard devices enables users to design, build, measure, and explore different prototypes in a single day.

This process allows companies to eliminate costly consulting and long integration projects.

Chief Analyst of Pund-IT, Charles King noted that Arduino’s offerings depend on Arduino’s great work and success in developing microcontrollers and other units.

He also added that considering the amount of IoT hosted at CES, Arduino has chosen a good time and place to announce it.

King can give critical importance during the time of rapid marketing to first-time markets. By facilitating the development of hardware and application products, Arduino should provide clear benefits to customers who clearly focus on the Internet of Things.

IoT Building Block

Arduino solution based on arm pillion technology. It gives users the simplicity of integrating with a scalable, secure and professionally supported service.

Arduino chief executive Fabio Violant noted that pre-production IoT devices and portanta units are “truly disruptive.”

“With millions of Arduino customers, we’ve been able to shift many companies from traditional” one-time “sales to subscription-based service models and create new IoT revenue streams with Arduino enabled,” he said.

Having a large community of developers with Arduino skills is also an important addition. This gives them the confidence to invest in Arduino technology, Violent added.

Portanta Features

Arduino Portanta is a complete toolkit for building the H7 IoT hardware platform. The new Arduino Portanta family is perfect for industrial applications, robotic edge processing, and robots. It features a new standard of high-density open links to support improved peripherals.

The first unit in this family is the Arduino Portanta H7. It has a 32-bit dual-core processor featuring a Cortex Cort-M7 and Cortex-M4 speeds of 480 MHz and 240 MHz, respectively, with components in the industrial temperature range (-40 to 85 ° C). Units targeted applications require the power of large computers but have intense energy impediments.

Portanta H7 is capable of running Arduino, Python and Javascript code. It has encryption authentication chip and module features for WiFi, Bluetooth Low Energy and LTE, as well as narrow IoT.

These features make it accessible to a wide audience of developers.

Portanta H7 is directly compatible with most Arduino libraries. It introduces new features that will benefit its creators. These include External DisplayPort, Fast Multi-Channel ADC and High Speed ​​Timer.

The new Arduino Portanta H7 is now priced between $ 49.99 and and 99.99 for pre-order at the Arduino Online Store. Estimated delivery date is late February.

Disruptive effects

King of Pundit-IT mentions that the new Arduino product line is designed to help small and medium-sized businesses connect and manage Internet of Things, as noted by King of Pundit-IT.

At the moment, the Internet of Things is getting a lot of encouragement from companies of all sizes. These often include small and specialized startups as well as companies affiliated with the market or industry.

“Arduino has already been a big follower in SMEs, and I expect that its popularity among these clients will continue or grow as IoT matures,” King predicted.

The bridge spreads through the gap

According to Charlene Marini, Vice President of Strategy for Arm IoT Services, one of the biggest challenges for companies that set up the Thing of Things is the ability to move from trial and prototype stage to production stage.

He told Linux Insider: “Arduino enables developers to use similar hardware during their travels, without the need for expensive time-consuming software and hardware redesigns once the software goes from concept to production.”

Marini noted that another barrier to the Internet of Things is the cost of publishing use cases, as IoT systems and applications are still in demand. Often packaging parts are not fully resolved and usually limit application possibilities.
