Unik løsning til indbygning af trådløs kommunikation i eksisterende MCU-systemer
Digi-Key har indgået en global distributionsaftale med det franske teknologifirma IoTize, hvis TapNLink produkter bl.a. gør det let at tilføje Bluetooth og NFC kommunikation til eksisterende MCU-baserede applikationer (in english).
Under a new distribution agreement, Digi-Key will resell a range of products from IoTize - a designer and manufacturer of plug-n-play wireless connectivity solutions for microcontroller-based embedded systems.
TapNLink products allow the user to take an existing MCU application that does not have wireless connectivity and add it using only 2 GPIO pins and without modifying the application's original firmware.
This approach is a Kickstarter for companies that are fast tracking their wireless integration projects to meet customers' changing expectations.
TapNLink reduces design effort and risks by a factor of ten, speeding time-to-market of smartphone-based interfaces for product configuration, monitoring, and control.
- Our partnership with Digi-Key is a crucial step in getting TapNLink instant connectivity to all types of customers - multinationals, SMEs, and hobbyists worldwide. Digi-Key optimizes online visibility of products and design resources, as well as the speed and cost of getting products to customers, explains Francis Lamotte, IoTize President.
Applications that would benefit from the instant wireless connectivity include factory machinery - control and monitoring, cable replacement, point-to-point data transfer, building automation, automated lighting, and inventory and tracking systems.
- We are very happy to announce our partnership with IoTize and offer their plug-n-play products to our global customer base, says Robbie Paul, Director, IoT Business Development at Digi-Key.
- Their TapNLink line will help customers bring a configurable solution to any project by adding Bluetooth and NFC communication to existing MCUs and will be a strategic relationship moving forward.
