Integrated Device Technology (IDT) is offering a Wi-Fi sensor evaluation kit that wirelessly connects IDT’s humidity, temperature and gas or liquid flow sensors for IoT applications, including smart thermostats, smart refrigerators, environmental weather stations, pumps and metering equipment and medical infusion pumps and continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machines (although the system has not been tested or certified by U.S. or other international regulators for medical devices).

The SDAWIR0x integrates IDT's HS3001 humidity and temperature sensor, FS2012 flow sensor and ZWIR4512 6LoWPAN module and network stack into a single sensor module. The ZWIR4512 transmits the environmental data from the sensors via Wi-Fi for viewing on iOS or Android devices. Up to 100 sensor modules can be connected to a single Wi-Fi hub or thousands with a full mesh network.

Firmware is updated over the air, which simplifies system updates. The SDAWIR0x security stack provides secure, end-to-end communication over unsecure network nodes, with its standard-compliant implementations of the Internet Protocol Security (IPSec) protocol suite and the Internet Key Exchange Protocol version 2 (IKEv2).

IDT's wireless sensor hub evaluation kits are available worldwide.

Sailesh Chittipeddi, IDT's executive vice president for global operations and chief technology officer:

“The SDAWIR0x uniquely combines our 6LoWPAN solution – which is already proven in smart home and municipal lighting networks – with our royalty-free security stack and OTA update capabilities to provide engineers an industrial-strength development platform for a wide range of IoT, connected home, smart appliance and other applications. Wirelessly updating the SDAWIR0x's firmware is simple and straightforward, thanks to the device's OTA update capability. This includes integrity checking and failure recovery mechanisms to ensure it will not become unusable even in case of error.”
