Redpine Signals Launches WyzBee® ─ World’s First Comprehensive IoT Platform for Device Makers | Business Wire
SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Redpine Signals today launched the world’s first comprehensive IoT
platform for device makers – the WyzBee platform – that includes a
flexible hardware platform, development environment and cloud software
and services framework. The WyzBee IoT platform significantly reduces
the time it takes to develop and bring to market new IoT devices by
providing integrated sensing, computing, communicating, power
management, cloud and application support. Redpine Signals is also
accelerating IoT device development by providing a broad portfolio of Things
profiles to developers like sensor, audio, GPS, GSM/GPRS and many
“With the new WyzBee platform, we're removing multiple layers of
complexity and cost in product development while giving product and
application developers everything they need in a compact solution to
jumpstart their IoT device or application,” said Venkat Mattela, chief
executive officer of Redpine Signals. “Redpine Signals doesn’t just want
to enable the Internet of Things, we want to unify the IoT maker process
from product development to the customized cloud and application
The compact WyzBee board includes Redpine’s Wireless Secure MCU (WiSeMCU™)
with multi-protocol wireless module providing Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1.
ZigBee connectivity, six-axis inertial sensors, an infrared receiver, a
debug port, push-buttons, LEDs, USB ports. WyzBee THING™ expansion
connector. The WiSeMCU module runs an embedded TCP/IP networking stack
with SSL/TLS/HTTPS security, apart from complete Wi-Fi, BT 4.1.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) February 14, 2014
Monitoring healthcare, homes, cars, retail, and mobile devices are just a few of the innovative new technologies that won awards at this year’s Connected World Awards Gala. The awards are being presented to the winning companies and individuals as part of the Connected World Conference held within the 2014 Chicago Auto Show.
“The 2014 award winners honored tonight are a combination of large and small companies representing a range of industries and applications. These winners came from areas of energy and healthcare, as well as building automation and retail. Solutions were implemented for GPS, car sharing, and even concrete-management systems,” says Peggy Smedley, editorial director, Connected World magazine. “This is a testament to the growth of the vertical markets and acceptance of the technology within those various segments.”
The Connected World Awards honor the companies that have successfully leveraged M2M in order to solve a critical pain point within their business, all with quantifiable results.
Particular emphasis is given to the process of combining multiple technologies, such as device, connectivity, hardware, radio modules, network service and provisioning, as well as application software and infrastructure, to create a winning solution; this is often referred to as the value chain. The Connected World Awards also recognize the key pieces of the technology ecosystem that helped them develop their award-winning solution. These companies were honored as technology enablers. This year’s winners include companies ranging in size from Fortune 100 to SMBs.
The 2014 Connected World Award winners are:
Gold: Cellular Machines, LLC
Silver: EnTouch Controls
Telit Wireless Solutions
Gold: SimpliSafe, Inc.
Jazz Wireless Data
Telit Wireless Solutions
Concrete Management Systems
Gold: Verifi LLC
Gold: JV Driver Projects Inc.
Intelliwave Technologies Inc.
Gold: FiLIP Technologies, Inc.
Connected Development, LLC

The WyzBee THING expansion headers accommodate a host of other symbiotic
devices, with a number of peripherals – called ‘Things’ – already
available from Redpine including audio, GSM, GPS, capacitive touch
display, rechargeable battery. Additional sensors. Application
development is supported with a choice of development environments –
IAR, Keil. The free CoIDE from CooCox.
The WyzBee platform is supported by the WyzBee IoT Cloud – a Redpine
hosted cloud framework that offers flexible and customizable
connectivity, analytics. User interfaces. The RS9113 chipset
integrates PUF-based hardware security block that provides for unique,
individual device entities – ensuring that each IoT device can be
individually authenticated and software delivered to it that can't run
on any other device.
The WyzBee platform also includes WyzBee Workbench, a unique debug tool
that addresses a common debug need that arises when engineers validate
systems that communicate with the cloud. This tool is integrated into
the development environment offered for WyzBee and provides a
comprehensive debug analysis of data traffic between the device and the
cloud. This Enhanced Debugger includes the capability of analysing all
transactions with the cloud, including secure SSL protected exchanges.
“mCube’s MC3610 ultra-low power, high-performance 3-axis accelerometer,
along with our magnetometer and iGyro products, is built upon our
award-winning monolithic single-chip MEMS technology platform. They've
been widely adopted in mobile handsets, tablets. IoT devices with
over 100 million units shipped. These sensors coupled with Redpine’s
ultra-low power wireless technology and WyzBee platform provide an
optimal platform for device creators in the IoT space. we're pleased
with the concept of creating IoT devices with WyzBee product synthesis
and power profiler to maximise battery life. We'll provide a variety
of inertial sensors on the WyzBee platform to enable optimal designs for
wearables and the Internet of Moving Things (IoMT),” said Ben Lee,
president and chief executive officer of mCube.
“Redpine WyzBee IoT device maker platform makes it possible to
accelerate device development with wireless technologies and IAR Systems
is pleased to support the interface to WyzBee development
environment. We've learned from our customers that wireless
functionality is one of the biggest hurdles in migrating applications
for IoT solutions today. Enhanced cloud protocol debugging features will
enable shortened time to market for IoT applications as well as address
the growing need of wireless technologies,” says Anders Holmberg, IoT
Manager, IAR Systems.
IoT Platform kits and WyzBee
THING adaptor cards are available now from Redpine Signals. A
complete demo can be seen at the Redpine Signals hosted symposium on
August 23rd at the Hot Chips Symposium in Cupertino, Calif.
The pricing of the base WyzBee platform board starts at $29 per unit.
The boards can be directly purchased from the WyzBee
