E-IoT hardware and software ecosystem to support IOT development and convert conventional equipment into connected SMART devices - Part 2
21 April 2022
“One concept to cover the basics of IoT. Not a dream but a real platform developed by Endrich to contribute to a smart and connected world. The Endrich IoT platform concept combines sensors, intelligence, wireless technology and cloud connection with open source support.”
The heart of the Endrich IoT concept is our self-developed base board called Endrich IoT board v052. The board is equipped with various sensors, a RISV-V architecture microcontroller, LTE-M/NB-IoT technology and multiple options to control and drive a wide range of applications. Via I²C, SPI & GPIO and UART can be used to directly communicate with the Endrich IoT board to send or receive the sensor data (from ALS-, Hall-, temperature-, air pressure-, vibration sensor or MEMS microphone). Since most applications communicate wirelessly, a LTE-M/NB-IoT modem with antenna is integrated. Thus the data can be connected to the cloud with standard protocols like MQTT/CoAP/LWM2M PPP/TCP/UDP/HTTP(S) and more.
There are several Single Board Computers (Arduino ESP, Raspberry) and sensor and communication boards available on the market. What makes the Endrich solution unique is the fact we have all IoT functions integrated into one industrial grade device the Endrich IoT SBC, control, sensing and communication. With the possibility of using extension boards the functions can even be further extended with displaying, wireless local communication and customized sensor functions. Usually, the other boards available from competitors are just commercial grade out of box solutions, E-IoT SBC however is based on an open platform meaning that all hardware schematics and also all information about the underlying technologies are available for free in our public Endrich Knowledgebase.
For evaluation purposes we established our Endrich Cloud Database to easily visualize data. The data arrived to the cloud vie UDP channel are shown in a messaging log as well as in a customized visualization tool. The cloud database can be used freely for testing purposes during the development with our IoT products. With external partners, it is planned to extend the offer and provide different cloud database communication protocols for example MQTT based with different visualization options. Even bigger cloud systems like Azure or AWS are supported to integrate our IoT solutions into existing platforms. The best way to learn about our partners is the direct contact with our sales and the Endrich team. At the current stage, the website shows the basic concept of our Endrich IoT platform in combination with the Endrich Cloud Database. Also, the user manual is implemented with detailed descriptions on hardware and software development as well as information on the products used on the IoT board. The website is always in progress and to be extended with more information. More materials like photos and videos are already accessible.

Customized solutions as well as universal adapter boards are possible with our R&D team located in Hungary. Adapter boards may be just a short extension for a battery pack but can also be external boards with different sensors to easily receive sensor data from sensors which are not on the Endrich IoT baseboard. A customization can be similar – just based on different designs. Especially for companies with limited time or knowledge about wireless protocols or IoT integration, this option provides a unique position for a distributor like Endrich in the market. More information about our IoT concept and different products will be shared in the future. For direct contact or discussions how to make your product smart and connected feel free to contact Endrich at any time. All information are available for free on our IoT Website: https://e-iot.info/
