A collaboration that clicks Adesto and MikroElektronika announce the FT Click


espite the eff ect of the coronavirus on the number of attendees, Embedded World still operated at full intellectual capacity, giving many companies the platform to present their latest technologies. As we see here, Adesto, Congatec and Segger are just three of the companies that persevered, but many more fought back against the fearful stigma that now surrounds the industry. Certainly, public health comes fi rst. However, it’s refreshing to see some positivity exuding from a signifi cant event in the electronics calendar that might have otherwise gone undeservedly awry.

t Embedded World this year, Adesto announced a collaboration with MikroElektronika on an FT Click board, which itself makes use of Adesto’s FT 6050 Smart Transceiver SoC. Its use? As an interface, via a mikroBUS socket, to enable the design and prototyping of various IoT applications. To elaborate, FT Click enables developers to evaluate the fl exibility and capabilities of Adesto’s FT 6050 SoC, which is designed to modernise and simplify sensor, automation and control networks through the use of multi-drop twisted pair wiring. The FT Free Topology (FT), Adesto’s


communication technology, is designed to connect various elements in industrial environments such as buildings and machines. The fl exibility of the aforementioned FT wiring is that it frees the installer from the need to adhere to a strict set of wiring rules, thus reducing time and expense

of device installation. It also simplifi es network expansion by eliminating restrictions on wire routing, splicing and placement. “We’re delighted to partner with MikroElektronika to create this exciting new Click board,” said Raphael Mehrbians, VP and GM of semiconductor products, Adesto: “Developers want to prototype solutions using familiar, open development tools and kits, and with its standards-based design, FT Click delivers that.”

Magical Management - Segger’s AppWizard unveiled S

egger unveiled AppWizard at Embedded World, a new tool that benefi ts engineers in their creation of ready-to-run applications, working in tandem with Segger’s emWin

An interface that welcomes all users, whether they are experiencing C-programming for the first time or not

embedded graphics library. With its built-in resource management capabilities, the AppWizard facilitates and reinforces emWin’s core functions, such as the rendering of animations, widgets, language management, etc. The construction of embedded GUI applications with AppWizard is made straightforward, not requiring prior experience with emWin, or even C-programming. By applying signals and slots/ interactions, the application’s behaviour can be defi ned with ease. Furthermore, with its integrated resource management, all resources (such as fonts and images) are converted to internal

Keeping it cool C

formats and added to the project. Resources can be stored in internal memory or offl oaded to external media. “Renesas Electronics values Segger as a strategic partner that off ers human machine interface solutions based on their emWin embedded graphics user interface,” says Daryl Khoo, vice president of marketing, IoT platform business division at Renesas: “emWin reaches across our widely scalable RX microcontrollers and recently became a part of our Flexible Software Package (FSP) for the Renesas Advanced (RA) Family of 32-bit Arm Cortex-M microcontrollers. We are excited about Segger’s new, intuitive AppWizard GUI design tool for emWin.”


ongatec presented three cooling solutions at Embedded World this year, for the new 100W edge server ecosystem that is being built around the AMD EPYC Embedded 3000 Series of processors. With rugged cooling solutions and processor modules for 24/7 operation from a single source, OEMs no longer need to think about how to design in a processor waste heat management system. In fact, recommendations for system ventilation design are additionally included often, so that the thermal design eff ort at the system level is reduced. Perfectly matched cooling solutions are essential for the


100W Edge server ecosystem, as overheating can lead to rapid aging and system failure. Edge servers with real-time requirements also need optimum protection against thermally induced performance degradation to ensure deterministic behaviour, which underscores the importance of cooling systems within industrial computer systems.
