New Arduino boards target IIoT applications

By eeNews Europe

The low-power MKR WiFi 1010 has been designed both for prototyping and production of WiFi-based applications. It is based on the Arduino MKR1000, but now has a u-blox ESP32-based module. The module delivers 2.4GHz WiFi and Bluetooth communications capability. Besides leading RF and power performance, the ESP32 also provides adjustable power output, enabling trade-offs between range, data rate and power consumption.

Compatible with the Arduino IT cloud, the MKR1010 offers a migration path from other Arduino boards, and uses open-source WiFi firmware. The MKR1010’s two standalone programmable processors, an ARM core and a dual-core Espressif IC, allow work to be distributed. Microchip’s ECC508 secure authentication module uses crypto authentication to secure TLS network communications and connections.

The MKR NB 1500 employs NB-IoT (narrowband IoT) communications and is designed to work over cellular/LTE networks. The board supports transmissions via AT&T, T-Mobile USA, Telstra, Verizon over the Cat M1/NB1 deployed bands 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 12, 13, 20 and 28.

Both new boards are compatible with the Arduino Uno, Mega and existing MKR boards.
