Semtech LR1120

Semtech LoRa Edge LR1120 is an ultra-low-power multi-band chip designed for global geolocation and asset tracking applications including direct satellite-connected Internet of Things (IoT) applications in supply chain management and logistics. Not only does the LR1120 features the usual sub-GHz LoRa radio found in most other chips from the company, but also comes with 2.4GHz LoRa and SATCOM S-Band support for satellite, as well as a GNNS radio compatible with GPS and Beidou, and a WiFi radio for indoor positioning (but no WiFi RTT/802.11mc support). Semtech LR1120 key features and specifications: Low-power high-sensitivity LoRa/(G)FSK half-duplex RF transceiver Worldwide ISM frequency bands support in the range 150 – 960MHz (Sub-GHz) and 2.4GHz, as well as 1.9-2.1GHz (S-Band) Low Noise Figure RX front-end High power PA path +22dBm in the Sub-GHz band Up to +11.5dBm in the 2.4GHz band LR-FHSS modulator Integrated PA regulator supply selector to simplify dual power +15/+22dBm with […]

UniPi Gate RS485 Linux IoT Gateway features 600 MHz Rockchip RK3328 SoC

UniPi Gate RS485 Linux IoT Gateway

Based in the Czech Republic, UniPi Technology design and manufacture programmable logic controllers, gateways, sensors and systems for smart homes, building management systems, industry and automation projects. Their latest product is UniPi Gate G100/G110 Linux IoT gateway with Ethernet and RS485 interfaces. When the company contacted CNX Software about the gateway, they told us the system was based on a quad-core Cortex-A53 processor clocked at 600 MHz. Since we are not aware of such SoC, we asked, and UniPi told us it was Rockchip RK3328. That processor is normally clocked at 1.5 GHz, and it turns out the company purposely underclocked the processor to 600 MHz to extend the temperature range and reduce the heat emitted by the CPU. UniPi Gate G100 & G110 specifications: SoC – Rockchip RK3328 quad-core Cortex-A53 processor @ 600 MHz System Memory – 512MB RAM Storage – 16GB eMMC flash, MicroSD card slot Networking – […]

OnLogic Elkhart Lake fanless mini PC’s are made for IIoT applications

Onlogic Karbon 410 Elkhart-Lake fanless rugged mini pc

Intel Atom x6000E Series, Celeron and Pentium Elkhart Lake IoT Edge processors were introduced in September 2020, and we covered several Elkhart Lake modules and SBC’s. We’ve seen fewer full systems such as the Atom x6425RE based Vecow SPC-6000 Elkhart Lake mini PC for embedded & IoT applications. But OnLogic is more offering four more choices with Helix 300 and Karbon K400 Series of rugged fanless mini PCs, all equipped with Atom, Celeron, or Pentium Elkhart Lake processors, and designed for industrial IoT (IIoT) or Industry 4.0 applications Helix 300 Series Specifications The Helix 300 family is comprised of two models with Helix 310 and Helix 330 share most of the same specifications: SoC – Intel Celeron N6211 dual-core processor or Pentium J6425 quad-core processor System Memory – Up to 32 GB DDR4 RAM Storage – M.2 Storage Video Output – 3x DisplayPort for triple independent display setups Audio – […]

ADL Embedded Solutions ADLEPC-1520 Atom based Industrial Mini PC Supports Stackable I/O Expansion

ADL Embedded Solutions has recently announced ADLEPC-1520 embedded mini PC powered by a dual or quad core Intel Atom Bay Trail-I processor, supporting wide temperature range, and long term 15 years availability for industrial applications and environments. The computer also includes an expansion header with PCIe, SATA, USB, SM-Bus and DisplayPort interfaces, that allows for standard or custom expansion board stackable on top of the main board.

ModBerry Industrial Automation Controllers Leverage Raspberry Pi, FriendlyELEC, and AAEON Boards and Modules

TECHBASE’s ModBerry Linux based industrial controllers have been around since 2014 with their first model being ModBerry 500 powered by a Raspberry Pi compute module. Over the years, the company has kept adding new ModBerry controllers with now an interesting choice of Raspberry Pi 3 board or compute module, FriendlyELEC’s NanoPi M1 Plus board, or Intel Atom x5 based AAEON’s UP board. All programmable automation controllers (PAC) runs Linux 4.0 or greater, with Debian or Ubuntu Core rootfs including ready tools and pre-compiled packs including C/C++, JAVA, SQL, PHP, SSH, and VPN support. The firmware is upgradeable over the air, and the controllers can run the company’s iMod control software and interface with iModCloud cloud computing service for telemetry, remote control and data sharing. Typical uses include C-L-V functions with conversion to collect and transmit data over communication interfaces, logging via iModCloud or a SCADA, and visualization via a web […]
