Prague, 11 April, 2020 - M2M Communications Holding (M2MC) unveiled the latest version of their innovative prototyping device, PG Board. It is a unique solution designed for the latest generation of Internet of Things networks, called Narrowband (NB-IoT). The new version of the PG Board now includes an improved antenna, a larger button to test the network signal, and new light wires for both the LED and light sensor. PG Board can be used as a prototyping device for creating and thoroughly debugging IoT firmware as well as a full-featured multi-purpose sensor for end customers. Thus far, no manufacturer in the world has been able to combine these two applications into a single solution. PG Board comes out from the factory with five most popular sensors.
Additional sensors can be connected to create a unique multifunctional IoT module. With the use of STM32 from STMicroelectronics, Europe's largest manufacturer of chips and a kind of standard for enterprise and industrial solutions, the PG Board is also a part of a huge community of developers looking for smaller sensor series. Configuring and producing special modules in small series the traditional way is too expensive, but with PG Board, it’s easy and very affordable. PG Board consists of the following: · Quectel BC66 communication module · Micro controller STM32 (STM32L452) · GPS chip and sensors: accelerometer, thermometer, hygrometer, light sensor and Hall probe, · Power supply and battery, · An antenna optimized for B20 · Optional cover · RESTLINK programming module (external). A comprehensive set of sensors is not the only advantage of the PG Board. It also includes an activated access to miotiq.com (with a data rate of 200 kB per month) configured for Vodafone's NB-IoT network for easy management of device communication so that it can be put into operation immediately after unpacking. “Since its launch, up to a hundred developers have tested and used PG Board.
They especially appreciate the great efficiency of programming firmware for IoT devices, as well as the possibility of prototyping new sensors for low-power networks. The variability of this module is further underlined by the possibility to produce it in any configuration according to the wishes of customers, ”said Karel Kr?má?, founder of M2MC Holding. M2MC is an integration partner of Vodafone, AT&T, A1, Telia and T-mobile for the NB-IoT network. Customers can order from one to thousands of SIM cards, for which M2MC provides a suitable data tariff on the platform for device communication management, interconnection with the NB-IoT network and commissioning data from the sensor to the IoT application including the REST API interface.
Customers and partners can use M2MC services regardless of whether they connect their devices or PG Board. The price of the fully equipped PG Board module is 95 EUR.
