The Cross Domain Development Kit (XDK) Hardware from Bosch Connected Devices and Solutions GmbH provides access to eight precise sensor data sources for information based IoT applications.

Networked machines, modules and other devices within an IoT application must collect and send operation and environmental data in order to create maximum transparency. An XDK is an all-in-one sensor kit that can be used as a universal smart sensor in 24/7 usage and for rapid prototyping of IoT use cases.


An XDK does not need component selection, hardware assembly or deployment of a real-time operating system. It monitors, controls and analyzes any device remotely via Bluetooth or WLAN. The XDK is smaller than a business card and includes eight micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) sensors with their respective drivers: accelerometer, acoustic sensor, digital light sensor, gyroscope, humidity sensor, magnetometer, pressure sensor and temperature sensor.

Benefits at a glance:

  • Rapid prototyping of sensor based products and applications for IoT
  • Additional functionality available via extension boards
  • BLE and WLAN connectivity with secure data protocol
  • Retrofitting production equipment with the XDK creates a smarter and more connected system, which can significantly cut costs
  • Cloud Connectivity provides end-to-end encrypted LWM2M connectivity from XDK to any cloud

Users get started via the integrated development environment 'Workbench' (Eclipse). PC and MAC based development tools for Windows, Linux and macOS make it easy to work with the XDK. Extensive libraries and modular source code enable a developer to fully understand the system.


Users can decide between a rapid prototyping kit (XDK110) or a professional bundle (XDK Node) in a package of ten pieces. The XDK110 device is designed for rapid prototyping and allows users an easy transition to mass production by providing a clear path to product development. The XDK Node includes ten XDK110 devices enabling a cost effective deployment for larger projects.
