U-blox and SolidRun have announced a collaboration on a range of connectivity products for the IoT, including turnkey IoT Edge Gateways for indoor and outdoor use, SBCs and System‑on‑Modules (SOMs). Each of the new solutions incorporate a u-blox NINA stand‑alone single-, dual- or multi‑radio module, providing the connectivity required by IoT applications in a small, low power and fully certified format.
During Embedded World 2019, SolidRun formally introduced its latest product: the SolidSense N6 Edge Gateway (shown), an enterprise‑grade IoT M2M gateway designed to manage a local network of IoT endpoints. The N6 Edge Gateway is a fully enclosed fan‑less design in configurations suitable for either indoor or outdoor installation, making it simpler than ever to introduce Internet connectivity in a distributed network of smart sensors and actuators.
The gateways and SBCs from SolidRun feature Wi‑Fi and Bluetooth Personal Area Networking, Wirepas Mesh, cellular connectivity, as well as USB and a 10/100/1000 wired Ethernet interface. They are powered by the NXP’s i.MX6 ARM Cortex-A9 processor in either a single-, dual- or quad‑core configuration (depending on the application’s needs) and also integrate up to 2 GB of DDR3 memory.
