STMicroelectronics (ST) has revealed that its efforts to enhance the IoT development ecosystem have gained additional support as a result of the recent adoption of its STM32 Nucleo Development Kit by the School of Electronics Engineering and Computer Science at Peking University and for the Xiao Gang Pao IoT development system by JUMA, an IoT software platform company.

The STM32 Nucleo Kit has been adopted by the School of Electronics Engineering and Computer Science (EECS), Peking University for its Electronic System Design Project. Relying on ST's STM32F401 Nucleo (mother board), X-Nucleo-IDB04A1 (daughter board) and X-Nucleo-IKS01 (sensor board), together with the ARM mbed online software development platform, the course provides students with a complete toolset to develop Smart Things and IoT applications.

In addition to supporting the IoT design courses at EECS, ST has been working with JUMA, a software company focusing on providing Bluetooth software IP and fast IoT development platform, helping developers accelerate the translation of an idea into a prototype and product. The ST/JUMA cooperation sets to support the growing number of small- and medium-sized IoT design houses and startups unlocking their innovation potential in both hardware and software.

Xiao Gang Pao (XGP, Little Cannon) from JUMA Inc. demonstrates the power of ST's IoT components and development tools in innovative designs. XGP integrates, on a business-card-sized printed-circuit board, several components from ST ideally suited to IoT applications: a BlueNRG-MS low-power Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) network processor; an LSM6DS3, described by the company as the industry's lowest-power gyroscope/accelerometer combo in a 3mm x 2.5mm package; an LPS25HB, a unique pressure sensor in an innovative, dust-free, water-resistant and stress-proof package; an HTS221 temperature and humidity sensor; and an LSM303AGR magnetometer/accelerometer combo in a 2mm x 2mm package.

In addition, the on-board implementation of JUMA software IP modules enables designers to develop complete IoT applications quickly including all the embedded, mobile applications and cloud part, based on JUMA.IO SDK and the open-source examples. As a result, developers can easily verify their prototypes and make them into real products.

ST's analogue, MEMS & sensors (AMS) team has also played an active part in nurturing the Innovator Community and Smart Hardware Development Platform in China, establishing a Chinese-speaking engineer community, st_AMSchina, a service subscription on Wechat, as well as the MEMS QQ Group.
