A universal and powerful platform for rapid development of smart and secure connected devices was introduced by Digi International. The ConnectCore for i.MX6UL Starter Kit delivers a complete hardware and software platform to create a wide range of connected devices for medical, healthcare, energy or industrial applications.
These offer the following:
With Digi’s complete Linux Board Support Package (BSP), the Starter Kit delivers an integrated and tested Yocto Project Linux software platform with regular maintenance based on current, stable releases with full source code access. Additionally, the Digi TrustFence Device Security Framework provides critical device security features out-of-the-box, such as secure connections, secure boot, encrypted file systems, access-controlled ports and seamless integration of a dedicated on-module Secure Element (SE).
“Digi is changing the traditional time-to-market dynamics for device manufacturers by dramatically reducing design efforts, complexity, risk, and cost. This kit delivers a proven Linux-based SOM platform with seamless and highly cost-effective integration of secure IoT connectivity for medical and industrial applications,” said Mike Rohrmoser, Director of Product Management, Embedded Systems at Digi International. “Exclusive features like the Digi TrustFence security framework, ultra-small footprint patent-pending Digi SMTplus form factor, and innovative Microcontroller Assist, make the ConnectCore 6UL module the ideal choice for intelligent connected devices.”
Digi also offers additional go-to-market options to its customers through the Digi Wireless Design Services team, offering design reviews, custom carrier board designs, antenna design/selection guidance, cellular integration and certification assistance.
