Microchip's M2M development platform eases the development of solutions with cloud connectivity
Microchip’s M2M development platform for CDMA enables the addition of Machine-to-Machine communications to your application. The module is pre-certified on the Verizon Wireless network; simply follow the steps to activate an account through our development partner TwistM2M. The platform includes CDMA, ZigBee, and Ethernet connectivity, GPS, on-board temperature and accelerometer, and two expansion connections for customization and support for a micro SD card. For code development, it supports Microchip In-Circuit System Programming (ICSP) interface for connection to MPLAB® REAL ICE™ In-Circuit Emulator or MPLAB ICD 3 In-Circuit Debugger. Included demo code enables monitoring of the temperature and acceleration data via a convenient web page front-end.
The Microchip M2M platform sends and receives data to and from a cloud-based server through the CDMA cellular network. The server is accessed by the user through a web portal that can be customized to an individual user's needs. Through the web portal, the user can display, analyze, and download data collected by the M2M platform.
