The Internet of Things (IoT) has proven to be one of the main drivers of innovation for many companies in the semiconductor industry today. Many products such as starter kits, microcontrollers and gateways have been developed to support the nascent IoT.

However, there are other devices and solutions developed in 2015 that are not IoT-related. Automotive and power are two sectors with some of the most innovative products announced this year. Single-board computers, headed by Raspberry Pi, also showed great improvements in terms of capacity and size.

EE Times India reviewed some of the biggest products developed by semiconductor companies in 2015 and picked 10 that made the strongest impression to our readers.

ARM starter kit brings smart devices to the cloud

ARM rolled out the IoT Starter Kit—Ethernet Edition, a tool that sends data from Internet-connected devices directly into IBM's Bluemix cloud platform.

The combination of a secure sensor environment by ARM with cloud-based analytics, mobile and application resources from IBM enables fast prototyping of smart products and unique value-added services. The first products developed using the kit are expected to enter the market in 2015.

"Securely embedding intelligence and connectivity into devices from the outset will create cloud-connected products that are far more capable than today," said Krisztian Flautner, general manager, IoT business, ARM. "Smart cities, businesses and homes capable of sharing rich information about their surroundings will be critical in unlocking the potential of IoT. The ARM IoT Starter Kit will accelerate the availability of connected devices by making product and service prototyping faster and easier."

The IoT Starter Kit consists of an ARM mbed-enabled development board from Freescale, powered by an ARM Cortex-M4 based processor, together with a sensor IO application shield. Future versions of the kit will run the new ARM mbed OS and utilise ARM mbed Device Server software to deliver a wider range of efficient security, communication and device management features.

Building on the momentum of recent announcements such as IBM's IoT Foundation and the ARM mbed IoT Device Platform, ARM and IBM will continue to work together on interoperable, open, secure and scalable connectivity between devices and the cloud.
