STMicroelectronics (ST) perfectly combines its unique development ecological environment with Ali's AliOS operating system to build China's first cloud node IoT platform
The STM32 platform supports AliOS, shortening the design cycle of IoT nodes and the time to market of products in the Chinese market
China / 13 Oct 2017
STMicroelectronics (ST; NYSE: STM), the world's leading supplier of semiconductors spanning multiple electronic applications, today announced a partnership with Alibaba Group (NYSE: BABA) on cloud computing technology The company-Alibaba Cloud cooperates to provide the overall solution of cloud node IoT for the Chinese market. The collaboration between STMicroelectronics and Alibaba allows designers to easily create IoT nodes and gateways by using STMicroelectronics IoT semiconductor products, and run Alibaba's IoT operating system AliOS on the nodes to seamlessly connect to Alibaba Cloud , to accelerate the launch of a large number of IoT products.
After the official release of AliOS, ST's robust STM32 microcontroller platform (MCU) will support the operating system. The STM32 microcontroller platform (MCU) is the most powerful Arm® Cortex®-M microcontroller on the market and the preferred microcontroller brand for IoT designers in China. In addition to processors, ST provides designers with all the key technologies needed to develop IoT applications, including communication connectivity, data security, sensors, power management and signal conditioning. ST's modular, interoperable IoT development platform includes state-of-the-art semiconductor chips, ready-to-use development boards, free software tools and common code examples.
The cooperation project between STMicroelectronics and Alibaba ensures development efficiency and access to China's first one-stop IoT platform, providing developers and integrators with greater convenience and more convenience when creating IoT nodes or connecting to Alibaba Cloud. High work efficiency. All software on the platform is pre-validated by AliOS, which simplifies security requirements and field upgrades of devices, allowing customers to launch new products ahead of competitors.
"By partnering with Alibaba, Chinese developers can run AliOS on the STM32 platform to create IoT nodes," said Arnaud Julienne, Vice President of Microcontrollers, Memory and Security Microcontrollers and IoT, Asia Pacific, STMicroelectronics. Cloud vertical turnkey solutions and ST's diverse portfolio of IoT technologies, including sensors, processors, data security, communications connectivity and power management, allow customers to stay ahead of the competition."
Ku Wei, general manager of Alibaba Cloud IOT Division, also said: "Alibaba's mission is to make it easy to do business in the world, and to help different roles in the industry chain find their customers and suppliers. We hope that through Heyi The cooperation of French Semiconductor can build joint solutions from cloud to chip, from security to application in the field of IOT, and we believe that the products of AliOS and STMicroelectronics can jointly help customers achieve their goals in the huge IOT market."
