A key challenge in getting IoT projects off the ground is evaluating technologies, architectures, and concepts – you need to be able to easily build a proof-of-concept and evaluate a platform and design in terms of security, hardware capabilities, integrations, and other key requirements you have … often with limited engineering budget and on a short time frame.
Typically, these evaluations take weeks or even months and involve significant custom hardware and software design just to even get to a prototype. And once you’ve validated the prototype you often have to throw that away and start over to develop a production-grade design. This approach incurs a lot of cost, risk, and delay in getting to market with a robust and complete IoT solution.
The Electric Imp platform is designed from the start to be pre-integrated, secure, production-ready, and easily adaptable – allowing you to go from evaluation to production with minimal engineering effort, short time, and high confidence.
To accelerate this process even further, Electric Imp is today announcing the QuickStart Family of impAccelerator Solution Kits, which are off-the-shelf hardware platforms that you can use to kick-start your prototyping and evaluation. impAccelerator Solution Kits allow you to plug-and-play different hardware and software components and assemble and evaluate production-grade end-to-end IoT solutions in record time.

Electric Imp is gearing up for our largest presence at CES to date. Visit us at our booth and learn about real-world industrial-strength IoT from our customers and partners. More in this blog post.
Just in case you missed it: Recently, Arrow Electronics and Electric Imp announced a partnership and distribution agreement for the Electric Imp IoT platform in EMEA. For more information, see the official announcement.
Electric Imp and New Relic team up for IoT Workshop
Electric Imp and New Relic are teaming up to get cool data from your IoT device and show you how to implement IoT application monitoring at the edge.
Come to the IoT Workshop on June 28th to see how you can get live data into your New Relic instance using an Electric Imp, such as:
- Environmental data (humidity, temperature, etc)
- Device operational data (WiFi signal strength, power levels, and more)
- Communication and application performance data (communication round-trip time, application statistics, etc)
You’ll learn how easy the Electric Imp-New Relic integration is and how to use New Relic to optimize your real-world IoT application – plus, solve our workshop challenges! Bring your laptop, and think of cool ideas if you’d like to explore Electric Imp and New Relic tie-ins of your own!
The event is FREE at happens at the New Relic offices in San Francisco on June 28. Register here.
