Fast-track Your IoT Projects

Get IOWA SDK and Get Going

IOWA is an award-winning software development kit (SDK) dedicated to helping organizations build efficient IoT device management solutions faster than ever. Best known for its remarkably small footprint and clean code, IOWA allows development teams to fast-track their IoT projects without having to build their device from the ground up. Its flexible, prepackaged code allows IoT devices to instantly access features like cybersecurity, secure bootstrapping, firmware updates, decommissioning, LwM2M connectivity, and so much more.

Best of all, IOWA comes with access to our highly-educated engineers and responsive support team, offering you the flexibility you need to make your IoT projects successful.


Give Your Dev Team Powerful Tools


Empower your development team to create LwM2M-compliant IoT devices in an instant. IOWA has been through the most rigorous certification to ensure its strict adherence to LwM2M specifications, and features a full implementation of LwM2M 1.2, 1.1, and 1.0 within the shortest stack possible. It also supports server-side implementations, including OSCORE and all DTLS/TLS libraries.

Custom-created for devices that require low power consumption or affordability, IOWA’s unmatchably small footprint and compact code at < 30KB flash and < 5KB RAM is specifically written to allow devices to live up to 20 years on a single battery. This equates to significant savings in operational maintenance, energy consumption, and network utilization, meaning that IOWA offers both present-day and long-term value.
