Smart Connectivity, Energy Saving, Environmental-friendly and Blistering-fast Solution

To better serve global developers across a wide range of industries, HiSilicon offers high-performing chips and components, as well as core technologies such as 5G, AI, and 8K, helping construct versatile development platforms such as smart vision and smart IoT to address common requirements. HiSilicon provides developers with technical training and empowerment, communication platforms, and ecosystem cooperation services by engaging in independent design house (IDH) collaboration, developer community building, and initiating partnerships with universities, improving application development efficiency and nurturing innovation.

In the intelligent era, smart devices serve as the hub bridging the physical and digital worlds. Smart connectivity is the connecting thread that helps facilitate the provision of intelligent services. With the emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT), smart connectivity represents the fusion of connectivity and computing, melding IoT with the traditional Internet, to equip smart devices to better their users. IoT smart devices have a multitude of different applications, and thus, smart connectivity needs to be implemented in the following layers:
  • Physical layer: Ensures stable connections.
  • OS layer: Supports the open-source ecosystem, facilitating third-party adaptation to a wide range of industries.
  • Security layer: Supports hardware-level encryption, complete encryption and privacy safeguards.
  • Application layer: Supports cross-terminal, cross-vendor interconnections and interworking.
  • O&M: Facilitates easy operations and maintenance.
In order to address the preceding challenges, HiSilicon's smart IoT platform, which is based on the HiSpark Wi-Fi IoT development kit, supports open-source HarmonyOS and Huawei LiteOS at the OS layer, integrates HiLink at the application layer, and is capable of adapting to other third-party IoT agents, allowing it to serve as the main method of entry for connections and wide-ranging interactions, particular those in smart home scenarios. The smart IoT platform can be widely utilized in smart home appliances, STEAM education kits (K12 teaching aids and university teaching kits), and consumer smart devices (low-power weight scales, one-touch printers, and distributed voice modules).
  • Excellent RF performance: Transmit power and receiver sensitivity exceed standard industry performance by 2–3 dB. Anti-interference capabilities are robust, coverage is more stable, and penetration capabilities have been bolstered, improving coverage by 30%.
  • Easy configuration and networking: The imperceptible configuration of networks within a short distance provides for an optimal user experience, and mesh self-networking supports more than 200 connected nodes.
  • Low power consumption: A unique low-power design makes it more suitable for battery power supply scenarios. The long battery lifespan and low maintenance workload mean that batteries do not need to be replaced during specific scenarios.
  • Multiple security capabilities: Different hardware-based encryption protocols are supported, providing chip-level data security and privacy safeguards.
  • Open-source operating systems: HarmonyOS, Linux, and Huawei LiteOS are all supported.
  • Two online clouds: Smart devices can be seamlessly integrated into the HiLink ecosystem, and third-party IoT agents can be integrated with ease.

HiSpark Development Kit

The HiSpark Wi-Fi IoT development kit can be flexibly expanded, based on the actual scenarios, by combining the universal mother board, main control board, and expansion modules.
  • Main control board: Comes equipped with a 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi SoC, integrates IEEE 802.11b/g/n baseband, RF, and 32-bit MCU, supports HarmonyOS, Huawei LiteOS, and third-party components, as well as imperceptible network configuration, mesh self-networking, and hardware-level encryption.
  • Universal mother board: Reserves a myriad of different slots, cards, and pin headers. Other expansion boards can be flexibly configured to implement wide-ranging functions, such as OLED displays, NFC, environment monitoring modules, and traffic lights. The onboard lithium battery port can be utilized as the basic mother board solution for smart robot cars.
Optional expansion modules:
  • NFC module: Supports such apps WeChat, Toutiao, Taobao, HUAWEI AI Life, and HiStreaming, and allows for easy switching between them via the corresponding buttons.
  • Environment monitoring module: Consists of three parts: temperature and humidity sensor, which is used to detect the temperature and humidity of the external environment; smoke sensor, which is used to detect the concentration of gas such as liquefied gas, benzene, alcohol, and smoke in the external environment; buzzer sensor, which can be used to set the threshold for the two types of sensors, and generate an alarm when the data exceeds the threshold.
  • RGB LED: Consists of three colors: red, green, and blue. It is driven by the PWM, and can display different colors and brightness levels, based on the RGB and duty cycle ratios. The infrared (IR) human sensor detects human activity in the external environment through the IR signals sent by the IR probe. The light sensor is used to detect the degree of illumination of the external environment.
  • Traffic light module: Simulates traffic lights.
  • Smart robot car module: Comes equipped with a number of drivers and interfaces, including the trace sensor interface, ultrasonic sensor interface, motor interface, steering gear interface, serial port, and PC interface.
    The HiSpark Wi-Fi IoT smart robot car kit is based on the smart robot car module, and provides such functions as imperceptible network configuration, Harmony FA startup, tracking, and obstacle avoidance. The kit supports HiStreaming as well, and allows for mobile app-based controls via Wi-Fi, which determine the movement of the robot car, including forwards or backwards, left or right, IR tracking, and intelligent obstacle avoidance.
