The ModusToolbox suite will now provide support for complete device-to-cloud application development flows based on the IoT industry’s most popular open-source IoT platforms. In collaboration with Arm, the Mbed IoT platform is the first supported application development flow in the Cypress IoT ecosystem.
The ModusToolbox suite provides flexibility for developers to access Cypress’ industry-leading IoT microcontroller (MCU) and wireless connectivity devices for the IoT. The suite also provides an open architecture that allows IoT development professionals to choose their preferred development environment. By bringing these elements together, ModusToolbox addresses the complexities that device designers face when developing IoT applications that require seamless integration across compute, connectivity and cloud domains.
Arm Mbed OS is a free, open-source operating system that helps developers build connected devices featuring security and connectivity. The integration with ModusToolbox is an important step in Cypress’ drive to make the tool completely RTOS agnostic, open-source compatible, and cloud-ecosystem friendly. All tools and development flows are available cross-host on Windows, Mac, and Linux operating systems. And, the Mbed development experience is delivered through the Mbed CLI tools, online compiler, Mbed Studio, and via export to the ModusToolbox IDE.
“Developers are under extreme pressure to scale and evolve IoT devices with uncompromised quality and security,” said Dipesh Patel, president of the IoT Services Group at Arm. “Through well-structured open-source IoT platforms, such as Arm Mbed, offered in the ModusToolbox suite, Cypress delivers the latest Cloud capabilities, seamlessly integrated with Cypress’ MCU, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth devices.”
Cypress’ ModusToolbox suite brings best-in-class connectivity, computing, security, and sensing together in a single platform. It combines the rich design resources of Cypress’ wireless libraries and the analog and digital peripheral libraries of its PSoC microcontrollers with an open-source, Eclipse-based Integrated Design Environment (IDE). Purpose-built hardware, multi-vendor RTOS support, and standards-based security solutions provide a solid foundation, that is validated by various cloud services. ModusToolbox unifies Cypress’ offerings, providing open access to third-party solutions, and freeing engineers to focus on delivering high-value, differentiated products. The IDE is available for download at www.cypress.com/modustoolbox.
The latest version of ModusToolbox is available for download and supports platforms including Cypress’ PSoC 6 MCUs, CYW43438 and CYW43012 Wi-Fi and Bluetooth combos, and CYW20819/20 Bluetooth MCUs.
