Embedded World 2018
Pingpong by Round Solutions is an embedded IoT/M2M hardware platform made for software developers. The platform supports extension boards that add unlimited capabilities.
The product can be used to make physical devices that connect to the web. It’s literally plug, push, and play. It comes with both wired and wireless connectivity. The device is available in two open-source versions. While the RTOS version comes with a 32-bit micro-controller running in C/C++, the Linux version uses an ARM Cortex processor for even more functionality and applications. The base circuit boards also have a CAN interface, a Telit cellular module, as well as a positioning component for the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS). The evaluation kit comes with a dedicated M2M/IoT SIM card and connectivity to a cloud platform.
The base circuit board can be extended by one or more extension boards like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, I/O, Iridium satellite communication, radio frequency, NFC/RFID, and camera interface boards. It is a plug-and-play solution that works, as soon as the extension board is plugged onto the baseboard. Through hardware extensions, as well as customized firmware variants, the product can be used for a range of IoT/M2M applications, e.g. a sensor reading device, an asset tracking, a router, a metering/telemetry device and security surveillance devices.
The company is part of the Embedded World 2018 in Nuremberg, Germany in hall 3 booth 335.
