ARM has acquired Sensinode, a provider of software technology for the Internet of things (IoT), and will continue the commercial offering of Sensinode's NanoStack and NanoService products to existing and new customers, according to the microprocessor IP vendor. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Sensinode has led the creation of the 6LoWPAN and CoAP standards for low cost low power devices, and has been a key contributor to the IETF, ZigBee IP, ETSI and OMA standardization efforts, ARM indicated. The ARM Cortex family of processors and collaborative mbed project, together with Sensinode's NanoStack and NanoService offering, provide the ideal foundation for thousands of new applications including wireless sensors, smart connected appliances, home health applications and wearable electronics, ARM said. The technology is also applicable to M2M applications using cellular connections and the new OMA Lightweight M2M standard for device management, ARM added.
The proliferation of these open standards will be accelerated through the ARM mbed project. mbed is an industry collaboration to deliver fundamental open source hardware and software building blocks for rapid development of intelligent connected devices. This includes support for microcontrollers, radios, peripherals, middleware and cloud services. Adding Sensinode's technology will enable developers to easily create IoT applications incorporating and supporting these open standards.
"ARM is dedicated to enabling a standards-based Internet of Things where billions of devices of all types and capabilities are connected through interoperable Internet Protocols and Web Services," said
"Sensinode is a leader in the definition and implementation of new standards and products for connecting large numbers of low cost low power devices to the Internet," said
