Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) April 18, 2012
The success of the MultiConnect™ OCG Open Communications Gateway has led to the availability of new developer tools and non-cellular models to meet the growing needs of Multi-Tech Systems customers and partners.
The new MultiConnect OCG GPIO cable and break-out board make application development and demonstration simple and fast through the use of quick-connect wiring and sensor simulation. The cable and break-out board allows developers to more easily:
- connect to the MultiConnect OCG-D Developer Kit or MultiConnect OCG-E Developer Board using the new GPIO cable with dual Molex connectors,
- connect sensors and switches to the MultiConnect OCG-D and MultiConnect OCG-E using the wiring quick-connects or headers available on the break-out board,
- power application sensors using 120V transformer, and
- demonstrate application changes using potentiometers and switches on the break-out board.
The new non-cellular gateways provide a hardware platform for customers looking for an industrialized Linux that do not require cellular connectivity. These Linux industrialized computers support the same connection interfaces (serial, USB, Ethernet) and come in the same form factor as the MultiConnect OCG-D and MultiConnect OCG-E devices. Models are available with and without GPS.
The MultiConnect OCG Open Communications Gateways are application-ready end user solutions comprising an open Linux development environment and a fully certified hardware offering that includes multiple interfaces (serial, USB, Ethernet and SD card) and internal peripherals (including a cellular modem and a GPS receiver). They are available in both external device and embedded versions.
Additional information on the MultiConnect OCG Open Communications Gateways, including a developer’s guide, is available on the Multi-Tech Systems Developer's Website. For complete details, please visit http://www.multitech.com/solplat.go or ask your distributor.
