VIBE is an IoT hardware platform which provides a unique combination of industrial sensor interfaces like SPI, I2C, RS232, CAN, GPIO, PWM, ADC, HDMI, a worldwide 2G/3G/HSPA connectivity option and a low power ARM processor for both industrial machine-to-machine (M2M) and home IoT applications. VIBE is a dedicated IoT platform which provides connectivity and processing power in a easy to deploy 2x credit card size form-factor.
VIBE comes with FCC and CE-certified 2G/3G/HSPA modem options, so you only need a SIM card to start capturing data from the field. VIBE can be operated fully on battery power and also support sleep mode for low power operations. VIBE can be remotely woken up using the Modem (by sending a secure SMS). VIBE comes with an optional RTC (with separate battery backup) for time-stamping sensor data. For high accuracy timing applications, VIBE also provides optional GPS+timing module.
VIBE is fully compatible with community supported BeagleBone black development boards. This means you can connect any of the 10s of BeagbleBone sensor capes directly to VIBE to kickstart your next IoT application in minutes. VIBE ships with its own Debian compatible Linux OS specifically modified for IoT applications. You can also use standard Debian Wheezy (or Ubuntu) Linux or even android. We also provide separate Kernal patches and firmware to activate IoT specific features.
