The Weightless SIG has announced the launch of a complete Weightless-N development environment for low power wide area network connectivity in IoT projects. Weightless technologies offer open standard access to IoT connectivity IP with substantive competitive advantage over alternative proprietary LPWAN technologies.
The development kits include a desktop base station with the same functionality as a commercial grade base station. The SDK incorporates an ARM Cortex-M3 MCU with 128KBytes of flash memory. The kit also includes supporting software tools, Simplicity Studio and a GNU C Compiler (GCC), together with a complete user guide.
Weightless CEO, William Webb, said: "We're keen to see LPWAN projects commence rapidly so to celebrate the launch we're making it easy to engage with Weightless technology by offering a limited number of kits available for free."
Yury Birchenko, CEO of Nwave Technologies, added: "We're very excited to offer developers the opportunity to start designing their next IoT product immediately. We are engaging with a significant, diverse and global community of developers who have eagerly awaited the launch of a Weightless development environment".
Weightless SIG Members get access to all of the open standard specifications, the test specifications, the test and certification programme and the right to sell product using the technology on a royalty free basis.
