Mouser signs Altitude to strengthen IoT portfolio
Mouser Electronics has signed a global distribution agreement with Altitude Technology, a designer and supplier of intelligent sensor technologies for the smart home and secure Internet of Things (IoT) market. As part of the agreement, Mouser Electronics becomes an authorized distributor of Altitude Tech's popular line of IoT Bit HAT modules and accessories, which easily integrate with the Raspberry Pi single-board computer to enable internet access, GPS location data, and Bluetooth connectivity.
The Altitude Technology portfolio of solutions consists of three main IoT Bit Hardware Attached on Top (HAT) modules that support the Raspberry Pi single-board computer. Each module is plug-and-play, supports any Micro SIM card with a single terminal command setup, and provides high-efficiency power regulation up to 3A. The IoT Bit GSM HAT is an 85Kbits per second (kbps) intelligent HAT module that provides GSM mobile data logging for the Raspberry Pi, as well as GPS positioning information, Bluetooth connectivity, and battery support.
The IoT Bit 3G HAT is a 4.5Mbits per second (Mbps) intelligent HAT module that provides fast internet connectivity for web browsing and small data transfers.
The IoT Bit 4G HAT delivers ultra-fast 4G internet connectivity (100 mbps down/50 mbps up) and is excellent for large downloads and video streaming.
Both the 3G HAT and the 4G HAT also offer access to GPS data and SMS transmission through the application programming interface (API).
Supporting IoT Bit HAT modules is a variety of optional antenna accessories also available from Mouser. Optional accessories include a water-resistant GSM 28dBi antenna, two 433MHz antennas for the GSM HAT, and a high-speed 4G aerial 28dBi antenna or a 4G SMA aerial 10dBi antenna upgrade for the 4G HAT.
