The Round Solutions PingPong is an embedded IoT/M2M hardware platform made for Software Developers. The platform supports extension boards that add unlimited capabilities. It can be used to easily make physical devices that connect to the web. It’s literally plug, push and play.
PingPong comes with both wired and wireless connectivity. The device is available in two open-source SW versions. While the RTOS version comes with the world’s fastest 32-bit microcontroller running in C/C++, the Linux version uses the powerful ARM Cortex processor for even more functionality and applications. PingPong base circuit boards also have a high speed Telit cellular module, a high accuracy positioning component for the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS), Ethernet, USB, CANBUS among other items. 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’n’Play Solution that works, as soon as the extension board is plugged onto the base board. Through hardware extensions, as well as customised firmware variants, the PingPong can be used for a wide range of IoT/M2M applications, e.g. a sensor reading device, an asset tracking, a router, a metering/telemetry device and security surveillance devices to name a few.
