Clarinox Technologies has announced the release of Jannal Intelligent Design Environment, which enables engineers with little RF experience to quickly create and test Bluetooth and Wi-Fi embedded systems for hardware and Real-Time Operating Systems (RTOS) combinations.
Lantronix released their xPico Wi-Fi module. The tiny M2M wi-fi board is a compact, embedded wireless device server. It is designed for easy and fast machine-to-Wi-Fi connectivity. The xPico Wi-Fi module features simultaneous access point and client functionality. This enables the creation of its own secure Wi-Fi network for direct access as well as maintaining a Wi-Fi client connection to the existing Wi-Fi network. This allows machines to be directly accessed via smartphone or tablet. Pricing for the xPico Wi-Fi start at $27.80 for 5,000 unit quantities.
Moxa introduced their MiiNePort W1 embedded serial-to-wireless module. The MiiNePort W1 embedded wireless module provides IEEE 802.11 b/g wireless connectivity to serial devices. The new Moxa product is compact and consumes only 1.18W of power. The MiiNePort W1 serial-to-wireless module is ideal for industrial automation, RFID and smart green (solar power) applications.
Microchip Technology introduced their Wi-Fi Comm Demo Board. The new product features a Microchip 32-bit PIC32 microcontroller and a low-power MRF24WB0MA agency-certified, IEEE 802.11, embedded Wi-Fi radio transceiver module. The demo board makes it easy to evaluate and integrate the combination of Microchip’s Wi-Fi solutions and 32-bit MCUs in one compact and cost-effective package. Microchip’s Wi-Fi Comm Demo Board is available now for $49.
Kontron introduced the KM2M806XT Machine-to-Machine (M2M) deployable system. The Kontron KM2M806XT is based on the Intel Atom 600 MHZ processor. It features three USB ports, accelerometer, dual HDMI, HD audio, GB Ethernet, and 4GB internal MicroSD card. The Kontron KM2M806XT is ideal for M2M applications that must operate in extended temperatures and industrial environments.
Mantracourt introduced their T24-PA wireless pulse acquisition module. The T24-PA is designed for the collection and processing of pulse related measurements. It enables the remote monitoring of processes that have a periodic nature, such as motor, shaft or flow meter rotation. The Mantracourt module transmits on license-free 2.4Ghz, and avoids local radio interference to ensure data integrity and security. The T24-PA wireless pulse measuring device is also available in IP rated enclosures.
Microchip Technology introduced their PIC12LF1840T48A single-chip devices. The PIC12LF1840T48A integrates an eXtreme Low Power (XLP), 8-bit PIC microcontroller with a sub-GHz RF transmitter. The Microchip PIC12LF1840T48A is optimized to run Microchip’s royalty-free KEELOQ advanced code-hopping technology. The new device family is available in a 14-pin TSSOP package. It is priced at $1.06 each in 10,000-unit quantities. Samples are available now. Volume production is expected in January.
u-blox introduced the LISA-C200 wireless voice and data modem module. The u-blox LISA-C2 series provides dual-band CDMA2000 1xRTT data and voice communication in a SMT form factor. The modules are fully qualified and certified modules. They feature low power consumption and a rich set of Internet protocols. Samples of LISA-C200 will be available in the first quarter of next year. They are ideal for M2M and automotive applications like Fleet management, Automatic Meter Reading (AMR), people and asset tracking, surveillance and security and Point of Sales (PoS) terminals.
Radicom Research introduced the RB4000 and RB4000HM Bluetooth modules. The new Radicom modules replace RS232 cable by providing short-range wireless data connectivity. The RB4000 (surface-mount PCB module with on-board antenna), RB4000HM (through-hole module), and RB4000HM-c (built-in U.FL connector) Bluetooth modules are available now. Prices start at US$9.00 for the RB4000 in quantities of 500 pieces.
Digi International announced the XPress Crypto Module for developing wireless and wired devices that meet stringent federal cryptography standards. The cryptographic embedded module is validated by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to Level 2 of the Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 (certificate #1452). The module supports a Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) and can be embedded in a host microcontroller circuit. Digi XPress Crypto Module development kits are available now for $399.
