Low Power IoT Design Challenge

Table of contents

The element14 Community is pleased to introduce the “Low Power IoT” Design Challenge in partnership with Infineon Technologies.


So many different applications in industry can benefit from a lower power and easier to use embedded solutions. From remote monitoring of raw materials, to battery-backed sensor hubs on a factory floor – no company wants to spend money, time, and operational bandwidth to service devices that are energy inefficient – in addition to the design challenges that come with optimizing system power, implementing sensor analog/digital sensor processing, integrating security, and connecting to the cloud or mobile applications!


Infineon Technologies is dedicated to “Make IoT Work”. That means giving developers like yourselves the right hardware platform to build smart, energy-efficient, and secure IoT systems along with an easy-to-use, flexile, and complete software to bring your ideas to life.


That is why for this design challenge, Infineon and Element14 are inviting you to use the PSoC 6S2 + AIROC Wi-Fi/Bluetooth Pioneer Kit (CY8CKIT-062S2-43012). Optimize power in a cloud-connected predictive maintenance module on a production line, extend battery life of a rugged device technicians wear to get smart alerts, detect human presence in a smart building doorway using a coin-cell powered sensor node, and more. We can’t wait to see what you come up with!


Example applications could include:

  • Factory Automation Sensor Hub
  • Predictive Maintenance Module
  • Human Presence Detection
  • Fall Detection Device
  • Cloud-Connected Robot
  • Air Quality Monitor
