Thalwil, Switzerland – March 12, 2019 – u-blox (SIX:UBXN), a global provider of leading positioning and wireless communication technologies, and SolidRun, a leader in embedded systems and networking solutions, are pleased to announce their collaboration on a new range of connectivity products for the IoT, including turnkey IoT Edge Gateways for indoor and outdoor use, Single-Board Computers (SBCs) and System-on-Modules (SOMs).
Each of the new solutions incorporate a u-blox NINA stand-alone single-, dual- or multi-radio module, providing the connectivity required by IoT applications in a small, low power and fully certified format. During Embedded World 2019, SolidRun formally introduced its latest product: the SolidSense N6 Edge Gateway, an enterprise-grade IoT M2M gateway designed to manage a local network of IoT endpoints. The N6 Edge Gateway is a fully enclosed fan-less design in configurations suitable for either indoor or outdoor installation, making it simpler than ever to introduce Internet connectivity in a distributed network of smart sensors and actuators.
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.”
