Variscite announced its new partnership with Foundries.io to accelerate the development, deployment and management of secure IoT and Edge products on Variscite’s System on Modules / Computer on Module based on NXP’s i.MX processors.
The first step of this collaboration started with the integration of i.MX 8M Mini based System on Modules with Foundries.io’s FoundriesFactory cloud-native DevOps service.
The combined Variscite-Founderies.io solution provides a secure, customizable, Linux-based platform with fleet management services for the world’s connected devices to accelerate time to market while reducing engineering and maintenance costs.
This new offering perfectly aligned with today’s more restricted manufacturing requirements.
“We are pleased to partner with Foundries.io to provide our customers with a cloud platform that will not only allow them to accelerate time to market but also to be confident in the ability to maintain and secure their devices throughout the product lifecycle,” said Ofer Austerlitz, VP Business Development and Sales of Variscite. “We are happy to extend our ecosystem and provide Variscite’s customers with complete end-to-end solutions around our SoM solutions
to meet their project requirements.”
The VAR-SOM-MX8M-MINI is a highly scalable, low-power System on Module that fits a wide range of applications and cost requirements.
With up to 1.8GHz Quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 plus a 400MHz Cortex-M4 real-time processor and up to 4 GB DDR4, the VAR-SOM-MX8M-MINI supports a variety of connectivity options.
The VAR-SOM-MX8M-MINI SoM is a part of the VAR-SOM Pin2Pin product family, providing customers with ultimate flexibility, extended lifetime, as well as reduced development time, cost, and risk.
Foundries.io’s open-source platform interfaces to any cloud and offers maximum flexibility for hardware configuration so organizations can focus on what matters: IP, applications and value add. Built with Yocto, FoundariesFactory uses the best industry practices for security and incremental OTA updates. Now, product teams gain enhanced data security while reducing the cost of developing, testing and deploying devices across their installed lifetime.
“Foundries.io offers a complete solution for Linux-based products so that IoT and Edge device makers no longer need to struggle with integrating development, security, OTA and applications solutions from different vendors,” said George Grey, Foundries.io CEO. “We enable developers to easily customize the open-source secure firmware and operating system in their own FoundriesFactory and use container technologies to add their own (or third-party) IP, services and applications. We are very excited to be working with Variscite to bring these benefits to their System on Module customers.”
This successful collaboration between the companies started with the VAR-SOM-MX8M-MINI with Foundries.io platform.
Variscite is planning additional integration with all i.MX8 series modules.
