The M2M Development Platform for CDMA, which is FCC Part 15 certified, includes GPS for location-aware applications, a serial communication interface for simple wired connectivity, microSD Card support for code, event or image storage, and an on-board 3-axis accelerometer to monitor motion. Additionally, the platform includes temperature and light sensors, and two expansion ports for custom sensing or connectivity development.
The Verizon Advanced M2M client is included as a binary library in the platform's source code.
M2M connectivity is enabling the "Internet of Things' (IoT), which brings remote control and monitoring to a broad spectrum of applications, improving efficiency and convenience for users. A fully featured hardware platform that includes the most common communication peripherals, along with application processing capability, is needed to reduce the cost of entry and complexity of development. Customer solutions that are able to communicate status, alarms and even location can be developed with this new platform, making it useful for applications in the consumer, industrial and telematic markets. Applications requiring remote monitoring, including alarm systems, home automation, remote pipeline equipment, vending machines and fleet management, can benefit from the platform.
"Microchip's new M2M Development Platform is an ideal solution for developers who want to add remote-management capability to their designs,' said
Developers can integrate their code with pre-validated communication blocks for a remotely monitored and controlled application. Additionally, developers can visit Microchip's development partner site at twistm2m.com to sign up for an M2M account for their purchased Platform. Once the Platform is registered, developers can monitor its various parameters on the twistm2m portal or can develop and link to a portal hosted by Exosite, a very flexible and intuitive online development environment. This combination of hardware and an enabling ecosystem eliminates the need for a developer to become a cloud or cellular technology expert, and provides a high level of capability with a low cost of entry.
