IoTize™ connectivity solutions minimize the expertise, effort, time and risks associated with integrating IoT connectivity in new and existing electronic systems.
First, IoTize wireless modules combine a co-processor with radio interfaces and security mechanisms. Our co-processor manages communications with the target system's microcontroller in via its debug port or a field bus. You simply configure the module with the location and access parameters for the variables that you are interested in viewing, logging or modifying.
Our modules benefit from a complete software infrastructure for getting data to an information appliance such as a smartphone, or to a Cloud IoT service platform. The complete IoTize solution provides everything you need:
- to develop user interfaces on information appliances (such as smartphones)
- to connect the system to a LAN/WAN
- to transfer data from your system to a Cloud IoT service platform
- to secure data and access to your system
Our solution encapsulates all of these features and technologies so that adding connectivity to your electronic systems requires little expertise and no changes to existing software.
Plug It In
IoTize TapNLink plugs directly into a system processor’s debug port to add connectivity without modifying the system's original software. For deployment, when an open debug port is not an acceptable solution, TapNLink offers the same functionality on any two GPIOs using our S3P protocol. The TapNLink module's co-processor non-intrusively monitors and writes the addresses that you've configured.
IoTize TapNPass wireless modules connect directly to a field bus via RS232, RS485, USB, CAN* or Ethernet* ports. The TapNPass co-processor monitors and writes only to memory addresses that are accessible via the field bus.
In addition to its co-processor, IoTize wireless modules implement one or more radio interfaces and security features. Data access in the target system, access restrictions, communication and security features are all implemented via a simple configuration of the module. Configuring a module includes specifying the target, the data to be monitored/written, access rights, and security or authentication features. The configuration process only takes a few minutes in IoTize Studio. This unique approach means that:
- no re-coding of your system's firmware is necessary
- no coding is required to implement TapNLink or TapNPass features
- no re-qualification of your system's native functionality is required
- no new expertise in wireless communications, security features or networking is required
Once it is configured, the IoTize radio module provides a bridge between your system and a smartphone or a WAN/LPWAN gateway via a variety of wireless communication interfaces. IoTize supports smartphone connectivity via Near Field Communication (NFC), Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), Bluetooth Classic and WiFi. IoTize supports WAN/LPWAN connection via WiFi and LoRa. IoTize is also fully compatible with any other wireless technologies including GSM, SigFox, WMBus, etc., thus enabling integration of systems into virtually any network infrastructure.
