Andes Technology Forms New Internet of Things Community to Provide Open-Source and Commercial IoT Solutions

HSINCHU, TAIWAN--(Marketwired - May 13, 2015) - Andes Technology Corporation, the leading Asia-based suppliers of small, low-power, high performance 32-bit embedded CPU cores, today announced, the new Internet of Things community that provides open-source, commercial solutions for connected devices. community partners provide the SoC development platforms, software stacks, application development platforms, and development tools SoC developers need to build highly competitive IoT products to meet narrow, fast moving product windows.

"IoT is a diversified market with great potential. In the past year, many companies have approached Andes seeking a partnership," said Charlie Hong-Men Su, Ph.D. Andes Technology CTO and Senior Vice President of R&D. "Because we understand that it takes multiple companies cooperating to fully exploit a market potential, Andes would like to contribute to the expansion of the IoT market by providing enabling resources for developers. With this motivation in mind, we created a new website: The site will connect chip vendors, partners, applications developers, and system vendors related to IoT. will also bring together solutions for silicon IP, software stacks, tools, applications, system to help develop products that will connect to the world."

In addition to the community, Andes is also creating the " IoT League." The League will showcase successful products that have been developed through the community. "We're also inviting Andes' customers to provide information on their products," said Frankwell Jyh-Ming Lin, Andes Technology President. "In return, IoT League participants will receive greater exposure and enhanced reputation in the IoT market. By showcasing a broad expanding array of applications, new prospects will be attracted to adopt products and solutions from Andes customers."
