NeoMesh click boards speed development of ultra-low power, scalable IoT and Cloud-based sensor networks
Mikro Elektronika today announced three new NeoMesh Click boards that are ideal for wireless mesh networking. The Click boards eliminate the need for engineers to create any development PCB hardware themselves, enabling them to initiate Proof-of-Concept testing of the NeoMesh network protocol stack in a real application quickly and at minimal cost.
The Click Boards feature NeoCortec’s compact, low-power NC1000 and NC2400 network modules which address a broad range of applications based on IoT and Cloud-based sensor networks, including smart building and smart workplace, metering, security, agriculture, transportation, industry 4.0, medical and food distribution. Three versions of NeoMesh Click are available, one for each of the communication modules which operate at 868MHz, 915MHz and 2.4 GHz. Average power consumption is as low as 20uA.
Explains Thomas Steen Halkier, CEO of NeoCortec: “The NeoMesh protocol is a natural choice when building battery-powered, highly scalable and reliable wireless sensor networks. Now, developers have access to a large selection of MCU, sensor and other boards which can simply ‘Click’ together to form a prototype device.”
Click boards follow mikroBUS a modular prototyping add-on board standard invented by MIKROE, enabling design engineers to change peripherals easily, cutting months off development time. Any Click board can be connected to the microcontroller or microprocessor on a main board. Many leading microcontroller companies including Microchip, NXP, Infineon, Dialog, STM, Analog Devices, Renesas and Toshiba now include the mikroBUS socket on their development boards.
