IoT gateway for industrial applications

15 November 2017 Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless, IoT

Brandwagon is introducing the IOT-GATE-iMX7 – a miniature, cost effective IoT gateway and industrial controller with an array of wireless and wired interfaces, designed into a miniature aluminium housing and measuring just 10,8 x 8,3 x 2,4 cm.

Featuring dual Gigabit Ethernet, 3G/LTE modem, Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1 and ZigBee, the device is ideal for networking, communications and IoT (Internet of Things) applications. An assortment of RS-485, RS-232 and USB interfaces also makes it a versatile platform for industrial automation and control systems. UART, SPI, I²C and GPIO signals available on a dedicated header allow its built-in Cortex-M4 MCU to be utilised for applications that require real-time I/O operation.

Fanless industrial design, rugged housing and support for a wide temperature range of -40°C to 85°C make IOT-GATE-iMX7 an ideal choice for industrial installations and harsh environments. In addition to a wide range DC input of 8 V to 24 V, it supports PoE powered mode to eliminate the need for a power supply and to simplify cabling.

The modular design provides an advantage for fast time-to-market projects that require custom form factor or functionality. Leveraging IOT-GATE-iMX7 for quick proof-of-concept and prototyping, customers are able to make a seamless transition to a fully custom design while benefiting from proven hardware and an existing software stack.

Brandwagon is also offering IOT-GATE-iMX7 without the enclosure – as a single board computer. It is offered with guaranteed 10-year availability. The device is provided with ready-to-run Debian Linux and full Linux Board Support Package (BSP). The BSP includes Linux kernel 4.1.15, Yocto Project file system and U-Boot bootloader. In addition, Brandwagon will support it with mainline Linux, upstream Yocto Project and FreeRTOS BSP.
