SensorStudio Development Tool helps emerging IoT Developers iterate the Design of their Prototypes with Widest Choice of Sensors and MCUs to fit their Goals
SAN JOSE, California, June 28th, 2017 – InvenSense, Inc. (“InvenSense”), a TDK Group company and leading provider of MEMS sensor platforms, announced at Sensors Expo & Conference 2017, the new SensorStudio 2.3 release. SensorStudio 2.3 is the latest reiteration of InvenSense’s sensor prototyping and development platform for the Internet of Things (IoT), with full dataflow-based custom sensors and new ICM-20602 development kit for GenericSensorHub. The support of custom sensors allows IoT developers a wider range of physical and virtual sensors while the diverse compatibility of the new GenericSensorHub platform allows support of a wider range of MCU platforms.
“InvenSense SensorStudio 2.3 introduces often-requested improvements from our community of emerging IoT developers. Developers will benefit from the enhancements to bring and test their solutions to market faster with virtually no limitation in their choice of sensors and MCU platforms,” said Nicolas Sauvage, Sr. Director Ecosystem, InvenSense. “With this new release, developers, even with small engineering teams, can move from idea – to prototype – to finished product more intuitively, with enriched visualization, and improved reliably, ultimately building a better sensing product.”
SensorStudio is a powerful graphical development tool to ease and accelerate the development and programming of an increasing range of solutions based on a growing number of sensors types. With this new release, SensorStudio 2.3 has added further user experience improvements comprising better grouping options for easier organization, support generation of C-code from a visual data flow (blocks) using C primitives, color coding to identify where blocks are running for more intuitive testing and validation of algorithms. Of interest to IoT developers needing fast prototyping, SensorStudio 2.3 now extends the capability to Record and Replay with Custom Sensors, in addition to already supported sensor and algorithm signals; creating repeatable development and test scenarios. These include rare and difficult to reproduce use-cases which are key to building solid test harnesses, validating ideas, and turning algorithms into reliable products quickly.
