Bridgetek joins forces with Zerynth & Riverdi to forge IoT Technology Partnership

In a move intended to broaden the appeal of its advanced graphics controller ICs in the emerging Internet of Things (IoT) sector, Bridgetek has entered into a three-way collaborative partnership with IoT development experts Zerynth and advanced display solutions provider Riverdi.

According to the company cooperation between the companies' engineering teams and drawing on their respective skillsets, customers will be able to better implement next generation smart building systems and Industry 4.0 ready factory automation equipment.

Benefiting from Bridgetek’s BT81x series devices, which incorporate the company’s Embedded Video Engine (EVE) technology, along with Riverdi’s touch-enabled display modules and Zerynth’s IoT programming platform and its supporting libraries, this partnership is intended to provide a comprehensive hardware/software offering that will help to dramatically accelerate system deployments.

EVE’s object-oriented architecture means that sophisticated human-machine interfaces (HMIs) can be constructed while only using minimal microcontroller and memory capacity, saving board real estate and curbing power consumption demands.

Likewise, Zerynth’s Python-based programming platform keeps software engineering overheads down and is optimised specifically for resource-constrained IoT applications. This will enable the numerous Riverdi-supplied Wi-Fi/Bluetooth-compliant EVE HMI units within an IoT monitoring or control system to connect up to the cloud network and thereby utilize various cloud services.

“The IoT presents huge opportunities for Bridgetek in terms of further automation of our living/working spaces and our factories. Bringing together proprietary EVE technology with the expertise of Zerynth and Riverdi means we now have a multifaceted solution to address these opportunities - covering all aspects from the chip level and board level right through to the firmware,” explain Lee Chee Ee, Head of Product Development at Bridgetek.
