Mentor Graphics releases end-to-end IoT gateway solution

Mentor Graphics recently announced a customizable edge-to-cloud IoT solution that simplifies the "get to market" process for IoT device vendors. Mentor clais that the solution will reduce risk, cost, and development cycles. The solution comprises a customizable IoT gateway system design kit (SysDK), a cloud backend, and runtime solutions that developers can use to build their edge devices.

The Gateway SysDK lets developers span the performance spectrum, as it supports 8-bit MCUs at the low end and 64-bit microprocessors at the high end. The hardware-software offering can be used as-is or customized meet specific gateway requirements, including compatibility with legacy and new IoT deployments.

The reference hardware is designed around an ARM Cortex-A9 based i.MX 6 series applications processor from Freescale, while the software includes a rich BSP. It can be customized to include secure gateway partitions using ARM TrustZone, which enables secure applications such as certificate management and secure remote firmware upgrades. The integration of cloud middleware supports the functionality provided from the cloud backend.
