The Gateway Solution


The Gateway


The gateway board manages all the necessary connectivity to the cloud service via WiFi. It can manage smart sensor boards via Bluetooth Smart connectivity. The board also contains an integrated antenna.

Some PMODtm connectors enable expansion of the board peripherals and connectivity: as an example a GSM peripheral module with embedded SIM and SIM-connector options is available as an expansion option to the gateway board to enable cellular connectivity up to cloud enterprise software services
