Laird Connectivity’s Sentrius™ BT610 I/O Sensor with Bluetooth 5 turns your wired sensors into IP67-rated battery-operated wireless nodes, providing robust and secure messaging. Leveraging our BL654 module, it provides full Bluetooth 5 capabilities, opening up industrial and equipment monitoring applications.
”The BT610 IoT sensor was built from the ground up using the Zephyr RTOS.
We wanted to offer our end user two usage paths, as an open platform for bespoke Zephyr RTOS development, and as a finished product that could be installed and used out of the box.
Zephyr RTOS’ boards file paradigm allowed us to describe the individual microcontroller pins, peripherals and external peripherals in use in the product electronics. This provides the end user a detailed picture of the product architecture upon which a custom application can be developed. The boards file is used as the basis for each Zephyr application developed for the hardware, and obviates much of the painstaking debug work in BSP development.
For the finished product application developed in-house, we were able to benefit from the plurality of libraries and modules available within the Zephyr RTOS ecosystem, for example BLE, MCU Manager, MCU Boot, etc. This allowed us to focus solely on the application related aspects, with many complex areas of the application largely being provided by Zephyr, with only configuration settings needed from our side.Greg LeachSoftware Development Manager, Laird Connectivity
