Ideal for IoT evaluation and general embedded cellular development
The Altocumulus IoT Kit from IoTzone is a new low cost IoT evaluation unit that enables users to evaluate and quickly develop industrial IoT and embedded cellular applications. The PCB can operate standalone or with an external USB host.
The Altocumulus kit comprises of a Telit HE901-G mPCIe card that plugs into a baseboard. Out of the box the Altocumulus kit will interact with the Telit IoT Cloud Platform (deviceWISE) by simply connecting the USB cable and antenna (both included in kit). The modem ships with a pre-installed Python script which demonstrates deviceWISE I/O functionality with the use of a GPIO push button as input and LED as output. The kit also includes a GPS antenna socket for developing location-aware IoT and cellular applications.
Full design sources including Eagle EDA files are available to create your own baseboards and to take your idea to market fast.
Further development of the on-board script can be done from the Python source framework with code supplied. Code examples and libraries for several programming languages are also available for developing external host processor applications that connect via the terminal serial ports. A large selection of development tools is available free of charge from the internet.
The Altocumulus Kit is also ideal for non-cloud application development and the PCB supports all popular technologies such as SMS, GPRS, PDP sessions, dial up etc.
