The Sky’s the Limit with the Toradex Cloud Library
Devices are becoming more complex. Systems are becoming more interconnected. As this trend continues, so do the hardware and software development challenges that face engineers. Historically, many proprietary hardware and software components would have been the key ingredients to a complete system. Today, product development is as much about integration with third party hardware and software components as it is anything else.
The future is starting to reveal a higher level of system integration. It is no longer just locally installed software components or operating system frameworks that are providing critical resources and feature rich additions to applications. Advancements in communication networks are providing low cost internet connectivity to a vast range of different devices, enabling them to take advantage of the rapidly growing services that are available in the ether of cyberspace.
Cue the Colibri Cloud. In the near future, customers integrating a Colibri module in their application will get access to a wide variety of different Cloud services through our Cloud Library. Using well structured, simple APIs, customers will be able to take advantage of messaging and notification services over a range different mediums, including SMS and email, and be able to store and retrieve data to cloud base storage including file systems and databases. Never before has embedded device connectivity been so simple, enabling a new generation of applications to be realized and brought to market in record time.
The Colibri range of ARM based low-power computer-on-modules from Toradex are deployed in hundreds of applications across a wide range of different markets. The Colibri product line differentiates itself from other competitor products by providing an extremely mature, feature rich, complete hardware and software platform around which product ideas can be realized.
Toradex has invested many man years of development time in extending the Windows CE and Embedded Compact operating systems that ship with every Colibri module. Such extensions include the addition of a wide range of configuration parameters in the Windows Registry to allow easy customisation of system behaviour, and a collection of different software libraries and example applications to support advanced connectivity and help accelerate customer development cycles while speeding their time to market.
