JANUARY 22, 2014 (Rome, Italy) The IoT (Internet of Things) market is growing fast and manufacturers are rushing to meet the challenge, putting pressure on research and development teams. New products are expected to reach market quickly and at low price points in order to keep up with the competition.
“It’s a new era, where service is king. IoT is a brand new stream of business opportunities that create services on top of connected devices. And FlyportPRO is a game changer, reducing the risk, time and cost of a new IoT product” says Claudio Carnevali, CEO of openPicus.
FlyportPRO is a new system-on-module made by openPicus. The new module is extremely compact, programmable and internet-connected, so there’s no need for an external processor. It runs the openPicus software framework, reducing development time by months thanks to the free IDE (Integrated Development Environment.)
FlyportPRO has everything needed to manage sensors and actuators: Digital I/Os, Analog channels, a real time clock and memory onboard.
It also can directly incorporate SD cards, USB devices and I2C/SPI advanced sensors.
Everything starts with the needs of a stand-alone connected product. But what is needed to create a great cloud-based monitoring system?
– Different methods of connectivity (for when Wi-Fi in unavailable)
– I/Os and other interfaces to connect sensors and actuators
– Cloud ready libraries
– Possibility to upgrade the firmware over the Internet
– Operates in real time
– Low power consumption for battery power applications
– Small physical size
FlyportPRO excels in all of those points:
– It’s available in 3 pin-compatible versions: Wi-Fi, GPRS and Ethernet.
– It has 60 pins available for your application
– Libraries and tutorials are available for developers, as well as the free IDE
– FlyportPRO can auto-upgrade firmware from your FTP
– It’s based on freeRTOS
– Transfers to uA power consumption in Sleep mode (and wakes up in milliseconds)
– Dimensions are only 34x34x9mm
FlyportPRO drastically reduces the development cost of an IoT product since a customer only needs to make is a carrier board that fits the three different versions.
FlyportPRO can work either constantly connected or only on request—it can monitor a set of sensors, save data onto an SD card and connect to your Cloud service just once a day (saving on battery life).
What you can create with FlyportPRO?
– Cloud connected sensors
– Remote controlled products
– App friendly devices
Battery powered IoT devices (there are several low power modes to save energy)
Smart energy monitors
Plus countless other creative applications
