Adesto, MikroElektronika Introduce mikroBUS-Compatible FT Click to Speed Industrial IoT Development

February 18, 2020 Perry Cohen

Adesto Technologies  and MikroElektronika (Mikroe) announced the availability of FT Click board that uses Adesto’s FT 6050 Smart Transceiver SoC. The plug-and-play FT Click provides an interface via a mikroBUS so engineers, developers, and makers prototype thousands of different IoT applications.

FT Click enables developers to evaluate the flexibility and capabilities of Adesto’s FT 6050 SoC, which is designed to modernize and simplify sensor, automation and control networks by using multi-drop twisted pair wiring, according to the company.

The FT 6050 is based on Free Topology (FT), Adesto’s communication technology that is used to connect buildings, machines, and cities in industrial environments. The flexibility of FT wiring frees the installer from the need to adhere to a strict set of wiring rules. It also simplifies network expansion by eliminating restrictions on wire routing, splicing, and device placement.

Attendees at Embedded World, being held in Nuremberg Germany, February 25-27, 2019, can see a hands-on demonstration of the FT Click boards in the Adesto stand #4A-124.
