Digi expands IoT solutions for medical, smart energy and industrial sectors
Digi International, a global provider of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, connectivity products and services, and an ST Authorised Partner, has unveiled Digi ConnectCore MP13, the newest member of its Digi ConnectCore MP1 family of system-on-modules (SOMs) designed for longevity, scalability and demanding product lifecycles.
A compact, wireless and secure system-on-module based on the STMicroelectronics STM32MP133C MPU, Digi ConnectCore MP13 is among the industry’s smallest SOMs with pre-certified Wi-Fi 5 and Bluetooth 5.2.
This solution delivers cost-effective, flexible and reliable connectivity for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) looking to reduce risk and product development efforts, while accelerating overall time to market of applications for the medical, smart energy and industrial sectors.
Complete with embedded security framework, Digi TrustFence, and Digi Embedded Yocto Linux software support, Digi ConnectCore MP13 SOMs eliminate implementation barriers and offer exceptional design flexibility for both complex and simple applications thanks to the compact Digi SMTplus surface-mount form factor (29 x 29 mm) – making them ideal for medical devices, industrial gateways, environmental test equipment, renewable-energy controllers and EV charging stations.
“We are delighted to expand the Digi ConnectCore MP1 family of SOMs and continue our commitment to providing off-the-shelf, wireless-enabled solutions suitable for a broad range of applications,” said Andreas Burghart, Senior Product Manager at Digi. “Designed for longevity, scalability and demanding 10+ year product lifecycles, Digi ConnectCore MP13 is a well-suited addition to our complete ecosystem of hardware, software and services that help manufacturers successfully develop and maintain connected products.”
Digi ConnectCore MP1 SOMs are distinct from other SOMs in that they offer comprehensive, fully-integrated solutions, which include a range of development tools, design support, wireless connectivity options, software and security features. These solutions include access to Digi ConnectCore Cloud Services and Digi ConnectCore Security Services, which aid in streamlining deployment, device management and ongoing maintenance across the product's entire lifecycle.
