Activity Round Up – Oct 2015: mbed Enabled applications open, Cannybots & new platforms!

It has been a while since we last did a round up. Needless to say we, have been a little busy and here are some of the recent highlights and activities.

mbed Enabled program applications open!

Earlier in the summer we announced the mbed Enabled™ program. Well it's here and applications are now open!


The mbed Enabled program is designed for mbed developers and partners who want to clearly identify their products as interoperable mbed Enabled technologies. This program allows mbed developers to focus their efforts on products that are compatible with the mbed development environment and interoperable with each other, and so reduce their time to market. It also gives further credibility to cloud services, silicon and OEM products in the Internet of Things (IoT) market by identifying them as standards-based.

How to apply?

We have divided the program and applications into two phases.

  • Phase 2: For any microcontroller, platform, component and end product using the mbed SDK, all the information you need can be found here:
    • Program overview and Technical requirements
    • Apply Here
  • Phase 3: For any target SoC, target module, board, component, cloud service and end product that utilizing mbed OS. At this time only Cloud Service applications are open, additional category applications will available soon.

Please ensure your product or service meets all the technical required before applying. Applications that do not meet the requirements will not be reviewed.

Learning to code with Cannybots

Cannybots is a 3D printed toy robot car that aims to make learning to program fun and interactive. The car was developed with a mbed Enabled Nordic NRF15822 BLE board and a bespoke utility for drag and drop over the air programing. Check out this video of the sequence in action. Their Kickstarter launch on September 29, 2015 and funded in one day!

mbed Zone at ARM TechCon


If you are planning to attend ARM TechCon or will be in Santa Clara, CA from Novemeber 10-12, stop by the ARM mbed Zone. Meet the lead engineers who are designing the mbed OS to find out how it accelerates your development. ARM’s cloud services teams will be at the technology bar showing how easy it is to connect edge devices to the cloud whether it’s for development or mass production. ARM will also be joined by over 20 partners from the mbed ecosystem who have deployed mbed Enabled products and services today.

New mbed Classic Platforms:

There are a handful of new platforms that have been released including one with the ARM Cortex™-M7 and others with connectivity ranging from Ethernet to BLE.
