Atom-Based Edge Controller with Java-Based Middleware Framework
Page 1 of 1
A highly configurable edge controller platform offers data access and control on the edge of the cloud, to aggregate and deliver data from edge devices, pervasive sensors and distributed monitors to the network core for further analysis and action. The Helios platform from Eurotech offers new advances in flexibility with the ability to select an Intel Atom Series Z5xx processor-based configuration, at up to 1.6 GHz with memory and video display options. Software options include Windows Embedded Standard, Windows CE 6.0 or Wind River Linux 3.0 for the operating system. In addition, the Eurotech Everyware Software Framework (ESF) allows quick time-to-market with simple to use APIs. Connectivity choices include wired or pre-certified wireless network services for devices for cellular, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi access within the secure and rugged USB bay area.
The Eurotech Helios platform can be equipped with the Eurotech ESF middleware to offer an easily programmable edge controller system. With ESF, OEMs have a Java-based middleware framework as a starting point for their application coding, leading to faster time-to-market and ultimately, future-proofing and greater market success. Combining the Helios configurable hardware platform with the ESF middleware gives OEMs the greatest range of flexibility, in I/O options, connectivity choices and object-oriented programming. Helios will be generally available in the first quarter of 2010.
