A collaboration between Farnell element14 and Sierra Wireless has produced the mangOH Green Open Hardware IoT Platform and mangOH kit. The platform allows developers to test and prototype ideas quickly and take IoT solutions to market within weeks. The industry’s first complete sensor-to-cloud platform, it provides an all-in-one hardware, software and cloud-based solution for industrial IoT applications.
Ideal for data logging in a remote location, the mangOH Green Open Hardware IoT Platform is perfectly suited for remote monitoring systems, as well as multiple sensor, IoT, and cloud-based 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.
Key hardware include integrated ARM-based application processor with cellular modem and GPS, Arduino and IoT Connector to add wireless, wired, and sensor technologies and the platform is battery enabled for low-power applications
The Legato open source Linux platform is offerred with robust connectivity APIs for accessing cloud and mobile network services.
Cloud Services are 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; these include NXP thread module, Linear Technology Dust Networks and Texas Instruments ZigBee, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth module.
The easiest way to get started is with the mangOH kit, which contains all of the components you need to get designing quickly. The 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 May 24 2016 at 5pm GMT. The event is sponsored by element14.
