IoT Cube BOX Gateway Significantly Cuts Development Times

February 25, 2019 by Paul Shepard

Shiratech Solutions, a subsidiary of AY Electronics Group and innovator of ARM®-based Platform on Modules, announced the IoT Cube Box (an exploded view is included above), an IoT gateway that offers direct and easy connection to the cloud. IoT Cube Box is the first product of its kind fitted with the new STM32MP1 series microprocessor from STMicroelectronics (ST).

With its clever combination of MPU and software, Shiratech assembled all the pieces to match product supply requirements - and Shiratech customers will benefit from ST's rolling 10-years longevity commitment.

Shiratech says it "Delivers fully-developed hardware and software solutions for specific industries, such as IoT or Industrial Automation. We pre-develop common components putting together a complete solution that cuts development time by over a year."

Ishay Kokavka, CEO, Shiratech Solutions, explained: "we are excited to launch the IoT Cube Box at this point in time, becoming the first manufacturer in the world to make full use of the new STM32 heterogeneous architecture. The IoT Cube Box will leverage this new microprocessor's fast processing and real-time tasks on a single chip, achieving the greatest power efficiency thanks to its combination of Arm® Cortex®-A and Cortex®-M cores".

IoT Cube Box is designed specifically for use in smart home, smart city and white goods applications. It makes full use of the STM32MP1 series strengths, running at up to 650MHz and operating a high-performance Arm Cortex-M4 microcontroller core running at 209MHz.
