Knect.me Partner Solutions Enable SoC Developers to Build Highly Competitive IoT Products to Meet Narrow, Fast-Moving Product Windows
【Taiwan Hsinchu】– Andes Technology Corporation, the leading Asia-based supplier of small, low-power, high performance 32-bit embedded CPU cores, today announced knect.me, the new Internet of Things community that provides open-source and commercial solutions for connected devices based on the highly performance-efficient AndesCore processors. Knect.me community partners provide the SoC development platforms, software stacks, application development platforms, and development tools SoC developers need to build highly competitive IoT products to meet narrow, fast moving product windows.
“IoT is a diversified market with great potential. In the past year, many partners have approached Andes seeking partnership,” said Charlie Hong-Men Su, Ph.D. Andes Technology CTO and Senior Vice President of R&D. “Because we know that it takes multiple companies cooperating to fully exploit a market potential. Andes would like to contribute to the expansion of the IoT market by providing enabling resources for developers. With this motivation in mind, we created a new website knect.me. The site will connect chip vendors, partners, applications developers, and system vendors related to IoT. Knect.me will also bring together solutions for silicon IP’s, software stacks, tools, applications, and systems to help develop products that will connect to the world.”
In addition to the knect.me community, Andes is also creating the “IoT League.” The league will showcase successful products that have been developed through the knect.me community. “We’re inviting Andes’ customers to provide information on their products that contain AndesCore IP,” said Frankwell Jyh-Ming Lin, Andes Technology President. “In return, IoT League participants will receive greater exposure and enhanced reputation in the IoT market. By showcasing a broad expanding array of applications, new prospects will be attracted to adopt Andes customers’ products and solutions.”
