The embedded solutions company MikroElektronika (MIKROE) has launched Planet Debug, a hardware-as-a-service platform that enables designers to develop and debug embedded systems remotely without investing in hardware.

For just $4/day, designers can reserve time on a remote Planet Debug station configured to their requirements, and then develop and debug their own application code remotely through MIKROE’s NECTO Studio IDE (Integrated Development Environment) without having to source the hardware, wait for it to arrive, and plug it all together.

By using Planet Debug, users save time as well as money. They also get to ‘try before buying,’ and can change peripherals, displays, or even the MCU without needing to buy any hardware, learn any new software, or write any new code.
