Design, Management and Upgrade of u-blox Based M2M Devices Made Fast and Easy
(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Research Triangle Park (RTP), North Carolina -- ClearConnex Inc., the innovative wireless M2M device engineering company, and u-blox a global leader in wireless modules and positioning semiconductors today announced that they have partnered to ensure that ClearLink, the wireless module connection manager, supports all u-blox cellular modules.
CLEARLINK IS THE CLEAR CHOICE
ClearLink is a library that allows control and management of wireless modules through a set of Application Programmer Interfaces (API) that simplify M2M device software development. With this advancement ClearLink supports u-blox modules SARA, LEON, LISA, FW75, and FW2770 allowing customers to speed time to market. With ClearLink, those unfamiliar to cellular M2M don't have to learn the intricacies of AT command processing or how to manage cellular networks to get to market.
THE FUTURE LOOKS BRIGHT.
ClearLink's APIs along with u-blox universal footprint compatible modules will future proof and protect any customer's investment in the development of an M2M device. If the carrier introduces a new technology these solutions allow easy switching between GSM and CDMA or 2G to 3G and beyond.
DEPLOYMENTS ARE FAST AND EASY, TOO.
The ClearLink library runs on any microcontroller connected to a u-blox module via USB or UART. Because ClearLink is operating system agnostic, once a customer's application is built on ClearLink it can be ported to any embedded system with little to no development effort. That makes deployment of any u-blox based device fast and easy.
Nikolaos Papadopoulos, President of ublox America, explains "Now our customers can take our wireless modules with start-ahead technology like ClearLink and get to market faster. Customers can then finish designs faster with ClearConnex engineering services to design custom devices that are future-proofed against cellular network changes from 2G to 3G, and from CDMA to GSM."
Ryan Rangel, President of ClearConnex adds, "u-blox is an industry leader in positioning and wireless semiconductors. It was a priority of ours for ClearLink to support all u-blox modules." Rangel adds "ClearConnex is able to work with u-blox's full range of modules to design custom devices that can support CDMA and GSM technologies making this a true Start Ahead Finish Ahead pairing."
