mbed launches certified IoT modules

By Nick Flaherty

mbed, the online embedded development tool supplier, has expanded its Mbed Enabled program to include production modules pre-verified to support the Mbed OS operating system and associated connectivity protocols. The program provides product developers with a simple entry point to the marketplace, where they can find mass production quality modules running high quality open source software and supporting a diverse suite of connectivity drivers and protocols.

IoT system makers are turning to module manufacturers to provide pre-verified functionality, particularly for host-less modules featuring an onboard microprocessor and built in connectivity. With so many vendors and modules to choose from, selecting the most suitable module vendor with the right experience and scale to support the company’s specific requirements has become a significant barrier to entry.

Additionally, due to the range of connectivity options used in IoT, finding a cross platform software solution with professional development tools is also problematic. Product developers often repeat costly software development programs when developing product families that must support a range of connectivity standards.

The Mbed Enabled Module program is being launched now with wiFI, Bluetooth and LoRa modules from u-blox, Advantech and Multitech running mbed OS.
