ARM has made an announcement that its acquired Finnish startup Sensinode, who develops "Internet of things" software. Sensinode has created 6LoWPAN and CoAP standards for low cost low power devices and has been a large part of the IETF, ZigBee IP, ETSI and OMA standardization efforts




ARM believes its acquisition of Sensinode and its 'Internet of things' is the next big thing in terms of the evolution of technology, where devices and appliances used in our day-to-day lives get embedded with sensors that collect data and connectivity to trigger actions. The British semiconductor says it will continue to sell Sensinode's NanoStack and NanoService products to both new, and existing customers.


The acquisition will help ARM to push open standards through its mbed project, which is an industry-wide effort to simplify development for connected devices by offering open source hardware and software. This will see ARM's Cortex range of chips being baked into everything from wearable tech devices, to the fridge in your kitchen.
