TI Expands Cloud IoT Ecosystem

09 December 2014

As the Internet of Things (IoT) grows, leading companies are reaching out for support in order to help bring the next-generation of connectivity and wearables to market faster and in more secure formats.

As a result of this, Texas Instruments Inc. has expanded its cloud service provider ecosystem for IoT by adding 10 new members in order to help developers get TI-based IoT products connected to the cloud that much quicker. The companies added to the ecosystem include Intamac/Kynesim, Keen IO/Technical Machine, Micrium, Octoblu, PTC, PubNub, Temboo and Weaved. A total of 18 companies are now part of TI's IoT ecosystem.

In order to qualify to become a member of TI’s IoT ecosystem, cloud service providers have to have demonstrated services on one or more of TI’s wireless connectivity, microcontroller and processor solutions for IoT applications in either industrial, home automation, health and fitness, automotive or other markets.

Furthermore, several of the ecosystem vendors are providing Energia support, TI said. Energia is an open-source independent development environment (IDE) and framework for rapid firmware development across multiple TI MCU architectures. Energia allows for interacting with the cloud to be accomplished using fewer lines of code. TI said this means developers spend less time worrying about how to implement Internet protocols and more time on creating differentiated products.
