Harwin M300 EETImes Europe third page Nov 14.qxd M2M COMUNICATIO NS IoT gateway reference design Freescale Semiconductor has launched a versatile and reliable Internet of Things gateway reference design supporting a broad array of IoT applications including building/home management, smart cities and networked industrial services. Designed in collaboration with Freescale manufacturing partner TechNexion, the reference design leverages the proven security, class-leading efficiency, advanced virtualization support and rich set of peripherals of the award-winning QorIQ LS1021A processor, which has reached volume sampling and is now available for ordering. The LS1021A IoT gateway is engineered to shorten design cycles and speed time to market for OEMs, it allows IoT service providers to replace multiple boxes with a single, lowcost High Reliability Performance to 10 Amps - Extremes of temperature -65 to +175ºC - Four finger contact ensures connectivity in high vibration environments - Up to 1,000 operations - Jackscrew security system - Small PCB footprint For technical specifications go to: www.harwin.com/M300 Launching 11/11/14 Pre-Register for Info Online unified appliance. At the heart of the Freescale gateway lies the QorIQ LS1021A ARM-based processor, which is engineered for fanless, enterprise and consumer networking applications such as IoT gateways; as well as enterprise access points and security appliances. Built on the new Layerscape system architecture, the LS1021A processor features two high-efficiency ARM Cortex®-A7 cores, enhanced with error checking and correction (ECC) technology, delivering outstanding performance at a typical power of fewer than 3 W. Freescale Semiconductor www.freescale.com First fully automatic and distributed wireless multi-hop mesh IoT network Wirepas has created a disruptive foundation for wireless mesh networks that targets the emerging Internet of Things (IoT). Pino is the first fully automatic and distributed Multi-Hop Mesh IoT network in the market for machine to machine (M2M) and wireless sensor network (WSN) systems. The Wirepas Pino protocol stack is simply smarter: the network itself takes on tasks that are much more challenging, if not impossible, to optimize centrally by a single coordinator. With Pino, all network nodes can act independently and more efficiently. External or central control simply cannot compete. “There are several application-specific initiatives out there to improve IoT platforms’ scalability, robustness and ease of use. They work on solving problems that originate from the lower protocol stack layers. We turned things around, and created a completely new foundation from the bottom up. Our customers will be able to reduce their life-time costs remarkably,” says Teppo Hemiä, Wirepas CEO. Wirepas www.wirepas.com Dual-band RFID antennas work with worldwide frequency bands HUBER+SUHNER announces a range of dual-band UHF RFID antennas designed specifically for integration into package and goods identification systems. The Sencity ® SPOT-L antennas support both European ETSI UHF (865 to 868MHz) and USA/ Canadian FCC UHF (902 to 928MHz) RFID bands which allows RFID system designers to develop solutions for a global roll-out. The antennas feature a matching tag reading range which, combined with a very low profile (11.5 to 15mm), make them suited for use as a conveyor portal antenna or as an underbelt antenna in RFID system applications including warehousing, industrial automation, distribution, retailing and logistics. There are two flat panel, Sencity® SPOT-L portal antennas in the range which can be placed on the conveyor sides or as a gate. Model 1309.19.0002 measures 773x312x15-mm while 1309.19.0003 measures 480x312x15mm. The under-belt flat panel antenna, Model 1309.17.0110, measures 1020x380x11.5-mm and can be mounted directly under moving belts. All three models are left hand circular polarized, DC grounded and come with a cable pigtail.
