Sensor-to-cloud platform accelerates IoT applications

May 17, 2016 // By Julien Happich
Farnell element14 and Sierra Wireless have jointly launched the mangOH Green Open Hardware IoT Platform and the mangOH kit, allowing developers to test and prototype their IoT ideas to market within weeks.

The sensor-to-cloud platform provides an all-in-one hardware, software and cloud-based solution for industrial IoT applications. At the heart of the board are two industrial-grade CF3 connectors to enable the use of either an AirPrime HL Series module or an AirPrime WP Series applications processor module from Sierra Wireless. The AirPrime WP Series cellular modem provides the device-to-cloud architecture enabling IoT developers to build a Linux-based product on a single module. The battery-powered board integrates an ARM-based application processor with cellular modem and GPS, and an Arduino and IoT connector to add wireless, wired, and sensor technologies. It runs on the Legato open source Linux platform with robust connectivity APIs for accessing cloud and mobile network services and is pre-integrated with the IoT Acceleration Platform from Sierra Wireless.

The mangOH Green IoT Platform is also compatible with other open source initiatives to allow for easy and fast prototyping; including NXP thread module, Linear Technology Dust Networks and Texas Instruments ZigBee, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth module.

The mangOH kit contains a mangOH Green Base board, as well as a WP8548 module with Cortex A5 application processor, GNSS receiver and 3G modem, socket cover and release tool, two Breakout Board IoT Connectors, a power supply unit, antennas and USB cable.

Sierra Wireless is running a one hour webinar entitled ‘Using open source technologies to rapidly build secure IoT devices’ on 24th May 2016 at 5pm GMT.  The event is sponsored by element14.  To register please use the following link: https://webinar.techonline.com/2007?keycode=CAA1EC
