IoT dev kit includes Linux-based multiprocol router

Echelon announced an IoT development kit based on its “IzoT” platform, including a new Linux-based IzoT Router and dev boards incorporating its RT 6000 SoC. Echelon introduced its IzoT Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) framework for peer-to-peer networking of embedded controllers last October. At that time, the building automation and smart grid networking vendor released the IzoT multi-protocol stack in an ARM-ready beta version and reference implementation optimized for the Linux-based Raspberry Pi SBC. Since then, support has extended to the BeagleBone Black.
