The gateways and SBCs from SolidRun feature Wi-Fi and Bluetooth® Personal Area Networking, Wirepas® Mesh, cellular connectivity, as well as USB and a 10/100/1000 wired Ethernet interface. They are powered by the NXP’s i.MX6 ARM® Cortex™-A9 processor in either a single-, dual- or quad-core configuration (depending on the application’s needs) and also integrate up to 2GB of DDR3 memory.
“Our new N6 Edge Gateway represents a total turnkey solution to IoT connectivity,” commented Dr Atai Ziv, CEO, SolidRun. “We decided to work with u-blox because the NINA series of short-range radio modules exactly meet the needs of our target market, offering the flexibility and ease of integration needed for the target application areas. The fact that they are provided pre-certified has enabled us to reduce our product development cycle, which has been instrumental in bringing our new products to market on time and on budget.”
