Digi International has introduced the ConnectCore 6 that the company said offers access to all of the features of the Freescale i.MX 6 Quad, i.MX 6 Dual and i.MX 6 Solo processors for M2M applications as the small form factor and design. The solution, the firm added, requires no connectors, cuts manufacturing costs and makes it easier than ever to add wireless capabilities to portable devices.

The product was developed to reduce design risk, complexity and time to market for those developing products for transportation, security and other industrial applications. The ConnectCore 6 modules built-in ability to connect via WiFi, Bluetooth, Bluetooth Low Energy and Device Cloud by Etherios can save product designers hundreds of hours of time and expense in designing wireless devices including the pain of passing and maintaining global certifications, noted the company. Complete software development tools are provided to build application software to help get products to market faster. The module has a 5-year warranty and is designed for long-term availability, ensuring that it will be available for the lifecycle of developed products.

ConnectCore 6

According to the firm, the ConnectCore 6 has one of the smallest form factors on the market and it requires no connectors for assembly. The design, paired with pre-certified, integrated and secure wireless connectivity on the module, low power consumption and heat dissipation capabilities, make it the clear solution for M2M products, said Joel Young, CTO and SVP of research and development at Digi International. The module offers innovation for portable M2M devices in many industries, and the module will be available for the lifecycles of the products.

ConnectCore 6 kits and prototyping modules will be available in March 2014. A fully integrated single-board computer will be available in Summer 2014.
