Our friends at PatternAgents have launched a Crowd Supply campaign for the first 10 embeddable modules of the new thingSoC platform.

thingSoC is a low-cost, highly-flexible and vendor agnostic socket system for IoT product development. It consists of both open-source hardware and software supporting many different processor types, including as ARM, AVR, x86, ESP8266/ESP32, PSoC and others.

This batch of modules, dubbed “Grovey,” enables users to embed them directly into their products or to recycle those open-source designs within their own circuit boards for cost reduction in higher volumes.

thingSoC incorporates the Embedis database for product configuration, identification, and asset tracking. Embedis is a tiny database server that functions using non-volatile storage, such as EEPROM, NVSRAM, FRAM, or Flash memories, and runs on small, limited resource microcontrollers.

thingSoC also gives users the ability to mix and match hundreds of existing peripherals and radio systems, ranging from Seeed Studio Grove to MikroElectronica’s Click boards. It even supports several various drag-and-drop development apps, like Blynk and Cayenne, in addition to the popular Arduino IDE.

Ready to reuse, remix and reengineer? Head over to PatternAgents’s crowdfunding campaign page here to learn more and/or back Grovey!
