Digi-Key have introduced a new design tool, the DK IoT Studio: an integrated development environment that aims to radically simplify developers and providers' means to create IoT solutions – ultimately going from idea to prototype in minutes without writing code.

The new tool, developed in partnership with Atmosphere IoT, has an intuitive user interface along with drag-and-drop functionality. Simply dragging sensors, processors, and other library elements and dropping them onto the design panel allows a user to make connections and start collecting data and sending it to a mobile device or the cloud.

The DK IoT Studio also generates the embedded code (firmware) as well as the web and mobile application code.

"We are thrilled with this partnership and what it means for the Digi-Key community,” said Jeff Liebl, CEO of Atmosphere IoT Corp. “Together we are reducing the complexity involved in translating a smart, connected product concept into an actual working system."

The initial release of the DK IoT Studio will feature Espressif's ESP32 and NXP's Rapid IoT Kit, with additional supplier platforms being added quarterly.

Other notable benefits of the tool include:

· Ability to create and import/export designs for shareable/customisable projects
· Utilisation of Amazon Web Services
· Integration of data into a third-party application, data warehouse or cloud platform

Said Robbie Paul, strategic program development director, IoT: “The goal of providing a design tool like the DK IoT Studio is to offer a seamless path from the creation of an IoT solution to field deployment.

“We are ready to help bring your IoT designs to realisation faster and easier than ever before, as the tool is uniquely paired with access to Digi-Key’s inventory of the world’s largest selection of electronic components, to help you take your designs to the next level.”
