Swiss-based u?blox, a global leader in cellular and positioning modules and integrated circuits, and ARM, the world s leading semiconductor IP company, have joined forces to create a powerful, flexible and easy-to-use prototyping kit for designing wirelessly connected, location-aware internet devices: the ARM mbed-enabled u?blox C027 Internet of Things (IoT) Starter Kit .
The C027 IoT Starter Kit will be demonstrated at ARM TechCon 2013 at the
The internet is reaching into every aspect of our lives, connecting everything from smartphones and tablets to devices for security, safety, surveillance, navigation, healthcare, convenience, and fun. said
This new kit will enable developers to join the ARM ecosystem and quickly move prototypes of intelligent ARM-based technology into production-ready designs, said
The compact C027 kit, measuring only 54 x 98 mm, contains a u-blox SARA GSM or LISA UMTS/CDMA cellular modem, MAX GPS/GNSS positioning module, and an ARM 32-bit Cortex-M3 microcontroller with 512k of Flash Memory and 64kB RAM, user programmable via USB. CAN bus and Ethernet interfaces are provided. The board also provides direct connector with 22 GPIOs to access components via I2C, SPI, UART, and I2S digital audio. The C027 is an mbed-enabled board with Arduino-compatible connectors which can be easily stacked with additional expansion boards. A complete circuit diagram is provided with the kit.
To make development even easier, the hardware is supported by the powerful and flexible open-source ARM mbed development platform (http://mbed.org) which provides free software libraries, hardware designs and online tools for professional and rapid prototyping of ARM-based designs.
