Digi-Key Introduces New Design Tool Kit to Simplify Development of IoT Solutions

Digi-Key Electronics has released a new design tool called the DK IoT Studio. It is an integrated development environment (IDE) that aims to provide a radically simple way for developers and providers to create IoT solutions. It enables developing an idea to prototype in minutes without writing any code.

The new tool, developed in partnership with Atmosphere IoT, has an intuitive user interface along with drag-and-drop functionality. Simply dragging sensors, processors, and other library elements and dropping them onto the design panel allows a user to make connections and start collecting data and sending it to a mobile device or the cloud. The DK IoT Studio also generates the embedded code (firmware) as well as the web and mobile application code.

The initial release of the DK IoT Studio will feature Espressif's ESP32 and NXP's Rapid IoT Kit, with additional supplier platforms being added quarterly. Other notable benefits of the tool include:

  • Ability to create and import/export designs for shareable/customizable projects
  • Utilization of Amazon Web Services (AWS)
  • Integration of data into a third-party application, data warehouse or cloud platform
