Telit 4 In-module IoT dev environment support for Lua on BLE modules
Telit made available of version 4.0 of its IoT development environment, the IoT AppZone which has the new functionality including an emulator and support for Lua, a lightweight scripting language optimized for embedded systems. The new framework also enhances support for static libraries that simplify management of complex software projects and integration of existing code base.
The IoT AppZone is an Eclipse-based integrated development environment (IDE) rounded out by IoT targeted tools, libraries, online documentation and sample code. AppZone C is a lightweight application framework runs on RTOS which includes a full set of APIs programmable in C language. AppZone C supports code portability across several products and technologies.
“By adding the emulator, Lua support on BLE modules and making key improvements to the IoT AppZone, we have not only given developers more flexibility and power to create code fast, but have also expanded the reach of AppZone to a much larger community, including app developers for devices based on low-power modules who can now also enjoy the benefits of consolidating hardware and simplifying development by installing and running applications right in the module,” said Yossi Moscovitz, President Products & Solutions, Telit. “Low-power devices are major contributors the super-massive growth forecast for the IoT in the coming years. Applied together with Telit IoT modules, connectivity and platform services, IoT AppZone 4.0 delivers highly scalable solutions meeting cost and performance targets for complex business cases like sensor nets, thin monitors and ultra-light trackers. It supports application embedding for a number of 2G, 3G and LTE modules in our flagship xE910 family and our miniature, multi-technology form factor family, the xE866. With the addition of the Lua scripting language, developers can create code to run in our BlueMod 42 family of BLE modules.”
