Creating IoT Devices & Controlling Them With Your Smartphone or Tablet

EE Times

December 15, 2015

Now we have the Simblee module, which is 10mm x 7mm x 2mm in size, and which contains two main functions: A 32-bit ARM Cortex-M0 processor (with 128KB of Flash and 24KB of RAM running at 16MHz) and a Bluetooth Smart engine.

If you are creating commercial or industrial products from the ground up, then you will almost certainly decide to mount Simblee modules directly on your circuit boards. By comparison, when it comes to prototyping or hobbyist applications, you may find it more advantageous to use one of the Simblee breakout boards. There are currently two such boards; one offers seven GPIO (general-purpose input/output) pins while the other provides 29 GPIOs.

Hands-on with Simblee, connecting things to the cloud through smartphones

ARS Technica

December 15, 2015

Earlier this year, Ars Technica got a demonstration of a technology that seeks to change how we interact with embedded computing technology—tying together Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) communications, Arduino-style microcontroller technology, and mobile Internet connectivity. The chip at the core of the technology, called Simblee, allows device developers to build and deploy their own mobile applications without having to write iOS or Android code or having to publish their applications through an app store. Eight months have passed, and Simblee Corporation's eponymous chip is now shipping.

A bridge to everywhere - How RF Digital connects people, places and things

Flextronics

October 12, 2015

It’s now been several years since the Internet of Things first promised to create seamless, ultimately invisible interactions between our physical world and the digital world we now rely on so heavily. Every device with a circuit board should be able to talk to each other, fusing their electronic world with ours.

That vision is becoming more real, but perhaps not in the way you might think.

The Internet as we know it—servers, routers, mobile apps, and Wi-Fi networks on every corner—only gets us so far. Sending all our data through millions of unknown nodes and hubs has its limitations (and headaches). A truly interconnected web of machines, and people, needs something better to hold it together.

Exclusive first look: Arduino-derived Simblee chip embeds "apps" into physical things.

But Simblee does more than just ease the development path. The device's extremely low connection latency and its timing accuracy give it potential applications in everything from wearable medical devices to gaming to industrial applications. It also provides an easy onramp for developers to build Internet of Things applications. And it's so small and inexpensive that it can be embedded in a wide variety of objects, like toys, store shelves, restaurant tables, and aircraft engines.
