Digi's iDigi Development Kits speed time to market and simplify application development
Digi International has released three iDigi development kits based on Digi's iDigi platform, a Platform as a Service (PaaS) that makes developing wireless applications simple. Optimized for green applications, the kits include all of the hardware, hosted software and services necessary to quickly and easily develop a sustainable application. Kit users have access to iDigi's free sandbox development environment and hosted software via a Web Services interface. This simplifies application development and speeds time to market.
These kits include the iDigi X4 Starter Kit ZB, iDigi Wi-9P Starter Kit ZB and iDigi BL4S100 Add-on Kit ZB. The iDigi X4 Starter Kit ZB includes the hardware and software tools necessary to configure a ZigBee network through the iDigi platform. Kit contents include the ConnectPort X4 gateway, which provides IP connectivity to a ZigBee network; an XBee ZB module and XBee wall router to create a ZigBee network; and XBee ZB light and temperature sensors for environmental monitoring/green applications. The iDigi Wi-9P Starter Kit ZB includes all of the tools necessary to develop wireless embedded applications on an ARM9 processor using the iDigi platform. Kit contents include a ConnectCore Wi-9P 9215 embedded module for secure 802.11b/g and Ethernet connectivity; an XBee ZB module and XBee wall router for ZigBee mesh networking; XBee ZB light and temperature sensors for green applications; and Python-based software development for prototyping and product design.
The BL4S100 Add-on Kit ZB is an add-on kit to the iDigi X4 Starter Kit ZB. It includes all of the components necessary to add wireless embedded control to a ZigBee network through the iDigi platform. The BL4S100 adds intelligent I/O to the iDigi platform that can be programmed to perform supervisory tasks and provide localized control of devices that are connected to a ZigBee network. Kit contents include a Rabbit BL4S100 single-board computer with Digi XBee ZB module, a Dynamic C CD-ROM with complete product documentation, a demonstration board with push-button switches and LEDs, a USB programming cable, a Universal AC adapter and a CAT 5/6 Ethernet crossover cable.
