Machine to Machine (M2M) Application Kit
M2M (machine-to-machine/mobile) brings together machine control applications with wireless communications. With 50 billion "machines" in the world, M2M allows a machine to be monitored or controlled from anywhere, anytime, using current wireless data technologies such as GSM/GPRS, and SMS (text messaging).
Rabbit Semiconductor control products are the ideal solution for the embedded control of Machine-to-Machine applications. As a pioneer in the embedded controls industry, Rabbit Semiconductor has been providing high-performance, reliable embedded control solutions since 1983. We offer a complete line of low-cost control solutions, including single-board computers, core modules, and operator interfaces for embedded control and Ethernet connectivity. The M2M Application Kit adds a wireless implementation to a Rabbit-based embedded solution.
Rabbit Semiconductor 's M2M Application Kit provides all the tools necessary to sample and design communications between a Rabbit-based device to a GSM/GPRS-enabled device (e.g. GSM/GPRS modem/phone, PDA phone, etc.). The libraries and sample programs allow for a GSM modem/phone to send SMS (text) messages to a RCM3200 RabbitCore module that can interpret messages as commands and in turn can execute control functions. The RCM can also wirelessly send/receive email to/from any PC, device or cell phone. A menu system allows for easy interface on the keypad display unit, as well as reading text messages and email.
The M2M Application Kit includes
Z-World's Dynamic C integrated development software with royalty-free TCP/IP stack and PPP module.
Machine-to-Machine with Ethernet:
RabbitCore modules with Ethernet onboard add a powerful cost effective layer of connectivity to wireless M2M applications. One Ethernet equipped RabbitCore connected to a GSM/GPRS wireless modem can act as a gateway to other Ethernet-equipped RabbitCores. This node RabbitCore can poll/monitor or send commands to the other wired Ethernet devices within its LAN. So instead of having one wireless modem for each machine, one wireless "node" machine can serve/control multiple LAN devices!
