New Arrow ARIS-EDGE-S3 kit simplifies development of battery-powered applications with compact TFT display

Arrow Electronics has extended its Arrow Renesas IoT Synergy (ARIS) platform for developing IoT devices with the ARIS-EDGE-S3.

According to Arrow, its ARIS-EDGE-S3 lets developers add ‘extra sophistication’ to connected objects, connect a small-form-factor TFT-display, and take advantage of tools and software to create a graphical user interface.

The device teams the Arm Cortex-M4-based 48MHz Renesas Synergy S3A3 Group of microcontrollers with context sensing and the multi-protocol wireless subsystem used in other ARIS-EDGE boards.

The on-board sensors include the Bosch Sensortec BNO055 9-degrees-of-freedom (9-DOF) application specific sensor node (ASSN) absolute orientation sensor, which contains a MEMS accelerometer and gyroscope, a geo-magnetic sensor, and a 32-bit microcontroller running Bosch Sensortec BSX3.0 FusionLib software.

Also on-board is the BME280 environmental sensor from Bosch Sensortec, which Arrow says combines temperature, humidity and pressure sensing. While Aa separate MEMS microphone and an ambient light sensor have been added to extend contextual awareness.

The radio module comes with built-in Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE 4.1/4.2), Thread, and ZigBee stacks.

Arrow’s ARIS-EDGE concept is designed to connect developers with the Renesas Synergy platform to give access to an optimised operating system, qualified stacks, consistent software libraries, and APIs that streamline IoT-device development and lower total cost of ownership.
