Created by award-winning developers, Skywire® plug-in cellular modems are the fastest way to provide cellular connectivity for machine-to-machine (M2M) products and speed them to market. Within months of its introduction Skywire® was recognized for innovation and named a finalist for the ECN Impact Awards, Boards, Modules and Embedded Systems category.
Skywire® is the smallest end-device certified cellular modem on the market, making it quicker and easier to deploy than module down, external modems, or solder-in modules. It uses the Skywire standard form factor and its pre-certification eliminates months of delay and tens of thousands of dollars of cost for required certification. It is easy to deploy, requiring just voltage and a UART connection and is more flexible than other plug-in modules, supporting a wider range of voltages and antenna connections.
How do their products help your design?
Design a Connected Product
Whether you are designing a circuit board from scratch, adding cellular connectivity to an existing product, or building onto one of today’s sophisticated microprocessors or microcontrollers, Skywire development kits simplify cellular modem connectivity and product prototyping. Skywire modem kits allow direct modem connection to your circuit board with everything you need for successful prototyping . Skywire shields and capes plug into boards from Renasas, Texas Instruments, STMicro, NXP and more, offering not just easy addition of a Skywire modem but advanced capabilities to complement those of the microprocessor board.
