The new FreeRTOS based, IBM Bluemix ready remote I/O module, RIO-201XBM Series which is powered by a 32-bit NXP LPC1768 100MHz ARM Cortex M3 processor and equipped with 64KB SRAM 512KB Flash.
The low-power ARM cortex M3 plus the high-efficient FreeRTOS make RIO-201XBM Series an ideal lightweight computing platform for device networking and remote monitoring. RIO-201XBM Series also provides alarm setting and local logic to trigger the on-board relay once the alarm event occurred.
This series is designed with FreeRTOS+lwIP (lightweight version of TCP/IP), which can automatically connect to Bluemix with verified instructions and push sensor data to cloud with Transport Layer Security (TLS) and MQTT Protocol. Applying on a Watson IoT platform, users can easily create a web-based application to monitor and analyze data.
As for a more complex application, RIO-201XBM Series supports Node-RED, a powerful visual wiring tool for the Internet of Things which is easy to wire together events and devices for the Internet of Things. With it, customers can take their IoT innovation to market faster and create new business value.
