IoT node development platform showcases WiFi module
An all-new development platform that targets industrial wireless IoT node solutions has been released by Future Electronics.
Developed by the Future Electronics System Design Centre, the Bullseye development platform showcases Panasonic’s PAN9520 embedded 2.4 GHz ISM band 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi module that features a highly integrated controller to be used in stand-alone or host-controlled applications.
This new industrial wireless IoT node solution aims to enable system design engineers to quickly evaluate and integrate Wi-Fi communication and functionality into their IoT product without comprehensive knowledge of wireless hardware and software designs.
In addition to the Panasonic PAN9520 embedded chip antenna, the Bullseye board features four selectable external antennas from TE Connectivity for extended range with different use case or performance evaluation.
The Bullseye also features an MPS battery charger and power solutions to enable a battery-powered wireless IoT node design.
With extensive user interfaces including USB, inductive position sensing from Renesas and a mikroBUS extension interface, the Bullseye evaluation platform is well equipped for many wireless IoT application developments.
