Friday 13 October 2017 | 14:33 CET | News
STMicroelectronics announced its cooperation with Alibaba Cloud, the cloud computing arm and business unit of Alibaba, to provide a complete cloud-to-node IoT platform to the market. The cooperation will allow any designer to create IoT nodes and gateways using ST's key semiconductor building blocks for the IoT, run Alibaba's IoT operating system AliOS on the node, and connect with the Alibaba Cloud for faster time-to-market of large-volume IoT applications.

With the official release of AliOS, ST has made the AliOS available to run on its STM32 microcontroller (MCU) platform. Beyond processing, designers will get access to ST's complete portfolio covering all the key building blocks for the IoT, including connectivity, security, sensors, power management, and signal conditioning. ST's modular and interoperable IoT development platform spans semiconductor components, ready-to-use development boards, free software tools, and common application examples.

The ST/Alibaba collaboration assures development efficiency and access to the first Chinese IoT platform, bringing greater convenience and productivity to developers when creating IoT nodes and to integrators when connecting to the Alibaba Cloud. Customers also get a head-start on time-to-market with AliOS's pre-validation of all software components on the platform, easing security provisions and field device upgrades.
