Avnet’s SmartEdge Agile with AI and Edge security designed for developing IoT solutions.
Newark element14 is shipping its SmartEdge Agile, a low power, IoT ready-to-use device that includes nine sensors, plus the ability to implement AI and security at the edge through a zero-code interface. The device’s sensor board includes two 3D accelerometers, a 3D gyroscope, a 3D magnetometer, a pressure sensor, a humidity and temperature sensor, a microphone, an ambient light sensor and proximity sensor. SmartEdge Agile also embeds a secure element to insure authentication, encryption and integrity of the exchanged data.
The device is built in a modular approach at different levels: the sensor board, the connectivity board and the USB Type C connector allows adapting the device to user requirement. SmartEdge Agile is CE and FCC Certified with Bluetooth Low Energy 5.0. Its internal battery can be charged by the USB type C connection. The device is based on an 80-MHz, 32-bit Brainium STm32 chip with an ARM Cortex-M4.
