Microchip Introduces The Machine-to-Machine (M2M) Development Platform For Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) Networks

Stocks in this article: MCHP

Microchip Technology Inc. (NASDAQ: MCHP), a leading provider of microcontroller, mixed-signal, analog and Flash-IP solutions, today announced a new Verizon Wireless Certified Machine-to-Machine (M2M) Development Platform for CDMA. The full-featured platform (developed by Twisthink, LLC, a Microchip Authorized Design Partner) enables custom embedded firmware application development on the PIC32, 32-bit microcontroller (MCU), with local-area and remote cellular connectivity. The platform is pre-certified on the Verizon Wireless network, with two-way communication capability. It enables designers to develop on a standard 32-bit platform to collect data, share locally over 10/100 Ethernet and ZigBee ®, and communicate to a cloud application.

The M2M Development Platform for CDMA, which is FCC Part 15 certified, includes GPS for location-aware applications, a serial communication interface for simple wired connectivity, microSD Card support for code, event or image storage, and an on-board 3-axis accelerometer to monitor motion. Additionally, the platform includes temperature and light sensors, and two expansion ports for custom sensing or connectivity development.

The Verizon Advanced M2M client is included as a binary library in the platform’s source code. Verizon’s framework allows developers to push the system intelligence out to the edge of the network, enabling their designs to work autonomously and only consume data services when needed. The kit also makes use of Verizon’s Application Enablement Services (AES), which allows developers to dynamically change the configuration, monitoring and thresholds of sensors without re-flashing the device’s application.

M2M connectivity is enabling the “Internet of Things” (IoT), which brings remote control and monitoring to a broad spectrum of applications, improving efficiency and convenience for users. A fully featured hardware platform that includes the most common communication peripherals, along with application processing capability, is needed to reduce the cost of entry and complexity of development. Customer solutions that are able to communicate status, alarms and even location can be developed with this new platform, making it useful for applications in the consumer, industrial and telematic markets. Applications requiring remote monitoring, including alarm systems, home automation, remote pipeline equipment, vending machines and fleet management, can benefit from the platform.
