Prototyping platforms shorten system Integration

A partnership between Arrow Electronics and Shiratech has created the Body Cam 1.0 and ICOMOX development platforms for image streaming and industrial condition monitoring, respectively. Both leverage Shiratech’s platform-on-module know-how to solve hardware design and integration challenges, and let users begin application development immediately.

Body Cam 1.0 is a live-streaming open platform based on a quad-core Arm Cortex-A7 processor with built-in LTE modem based on a Quectel SC20 SoC. It contains a fully integrated 13Mpixel camera module based on an ON Semiconductor sensor, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.1 connectivity. GNSS satellite positioning is also included.

Context awareness comes from Analog Devices’ ADUX1020 multifunction photometric sensor with gesture and proximity detection and ADXL343BCCZ 10/13-bit accelerometer. There are also generous external interfaces including a two-lane MIPI-CSI2 input for a rear-facing camera, micro USB port, analogue microphone input, and Micro SD and Micro SIM slots.  

Body Cam 1.0 comes with a simple one-button camera control, plus on/off and audio-volume buttons, for rapid development of smart products for baby monitoring, security surveillance, emergency services, and independent living. It is housed in a plastic enclosure that attaches easily to clothing for field tests. 

The concept of the Body Cam 1.0 Platform is to use this reference for many applications that are similar, such as baby monitoring, security cameras and many more.  

The ICOMOX (Intelligent Condition-Monitoring Box) ultra-low power platform integrates vibration, magnetic-field, temperature and sound sensors for detecting faults in a wide variety of industrial equipment, assets, and structures.

Integrated sensors include the Analog Devices ADXL356 low-power low-noise vibration sensor and ADT7410 16-bit -55°C to +155°C temperature sensor, as well as a magnetic-field sensor and high-performance MEMS microphone. 

Running on Analog Devices’ ADuCM4050 application processor, and featuring Analog Devices’ LTC5800-IPM wireless transceiver, ICOMOX presents an open sensor-to-cloud platform that combines high-performance sensing, embedded software and analytics for early failure detection, and configurable warnings and event timestamping for each sensor.

The LTC5800-IPM is a complete 2.4GHz, IEEE 802.15.4e System-on-Chip with embedded SmartMesh IP networking software that permits flexible connectivity and ensures high network reliability in challenging RF conditions often encountered in tough industrial environments.

Ready to accelerate development of advanced systems for condition-based maintenance for increased enterprise productivity, ICOMOX features an easy-to-use interface and comes with on-board analytics software for early fault detection. Optional Cloud applications allow access to even more advanced analytics capabilities.
