Digi International extended its IoT solution portfolio with the unveiling of its new Digi ConnectCore MP1 family of system-on-modules (SOMs). The MP1 is the industry’s smallest STM32MP1 SOM that integrates Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and wired connectivity without comprising design flexibility, per its maker. This solution is made complete with its Connected Device platform as well as its development tools and design support. This makes Digi ConnectCore MP1 SOMs a cost-effective wireless solution for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) seeking to reduce risk and effort in their product development, Digi says. Ideal Digi ConnectCore MP1 applications include handheld products with cameras and/or displays such as medical devices, environmental test equipment, industrial human machine interfaces, or headless devices such as EV charging stations, renewable-energy controllers and others. Leveraging both new and market-proven STM32MP1 micro processing units (MPUs) from STMicroelectronics (STM), Digi ConnectCore MP1 SOMs offer more features with a lower total cost of ownership, they add. The form factor is smaller than a postage stamp (29×29 mm), which is ideal for form-factor-challenged applications with low-profile requirements. These off-the-shelf family of Digi ConnectCore MP1 SOMs bring scalability, compatibility and pre-certified wireless connectivity in a solution suitable for a broad range of applications in the healthcare, transportation and industrial sectors.
