Cross Domain Development Kit | XDK
The programmable sensor device and IoT prototyping platform for any use case you can imagine.
What is the XDK?
XDK is now released for 24/7 usage, giving you the complete freedom to employ it either as short-term proof-of-concept or XDK Node for long-term projects.
Show the world your great idea for an IoT solution by using the Bosch XDK. This quick and professional prototyping platform has evolved continuously. It's not just available to you as rapid prototyping tool, but also as programmable sensor node. Get the XDK as a single boxed prototyping product or the XDK Node in packs of 10 units including mounting plates.
Utilize the power to monitor, control and analyze your product remotely, via Bluetooth® or Wireless Network. Record predictive maintenance thanks to the included multiple micro-electro mechanical systems (MEMS) sensors and various parameters for condition monitoring. Allow devices, products or machines to become connective and smarter.
Your potential application areas
Realization of first IoT prototypes
The XDK is an all-in-one sensor-based device for the realization of all IoT use cases or proof of concepts, especially for professionals and advanced hobbyists, but also students and research associates. The XDK enables time and cost effective prototyping.
Small batch operating use cases
The XDK Node is a universal programmable sensor device and is the next step in the product development of the XDK. The XDK Node moves the XDK from an IoT prototyping tool to a small batch operating use case. The product is delivered as a box of 10, and the XDKs are already on the mounting plates. This XDK Node (the 10 pack of XDKs) offers the customer the ability to deploy the XDK faster and to use it in a wide variety of IoT applications and/or projects.
Mass production and series engineering
We offer individual options for series engineering and mass production to bring your product to life. Here, we draw on Bosch's expertise in MEMS technology and offer high-volume availability and cost-efficiency for your specific request.
