Speed up your M2M systems development with 'AppZone'
08 December 2011
machine-to-machine (M2M) technology specialist, Telit Wireless Solutions has introduced Telit AppZone, an embedded application space in Telit’s G30 GSM/GPRS module, enabling easy application development with industry standard C code. It eliminates the need for an external CPU, RAM and ROM, further reducing size and cost. The Telit AppZone platform is open and targets a wide range of different products and verticals, such as remote monitoring and control, security and surveillance.
Standard M2M solutions require an external CPU connected to the modem in order to control it. Telit AppZone shifts this capability into the module itself, reducing hardware cost and saving space on the PCB. In addition, it makes application development easier because the developers only need to master one programming language – standard C – which is widely-used and very powerful.
Normally, application development requires different languages for the modem and the microcontroller. Telit AppZone is an open platform providing standard interfaces (POSIX, BSD), allowing easy integration/porting of applications from a different OS/ platform. It allows developers to implement/port applications using their knowledge on open software, libraries and protocols.
Integration of Motorola M2M bears fruit
The client materials are designed to provide a very user friendly environment for the developer. Telit provides tools for programming, debugging and for flashing the software into the module. The AppZone software platform comes with sample applications and a 'skeleton' code that developers can use as a starting point for building their own applications.
Telit’s G30 is a very flexible module because it comes in two variants with same HW form factor: LGA or connectorized. It has recently been certified by AT&T, which makes it even more attractive for m2m applications.
