New Ultra Low-power Internet of Things Kit for Smart Cities, Appliances

STOCKHOLM, September 25, 2013 — (PRNewswire) —

Internet of Things startup Thingsquare today announced the availability of the Thingsquare Internet of Things evaluation kit.  Unlike many Internet of Things solutions, the Thingsquare system does not depend on a gateway. Instead, all devices are connected directly to the Internet, using a wireless radio with much lower power consumption than WiFi. Using self-forming and self-healing mesh networking, the range of a Thingsquare system can be very large - a single network can cover an entire city.

Building on the success of existing Thingsquare-based systems, the new Thingsquare kit opens up a new range of applications, including street lighting, smart appliances, meter reading, and wireless sensing. The kit is built on the Texas Instruments (TI) low-power CC2538 2.4 GHz System-on-a-Chip (SoC), an IoT-ready integrated radio transceiver and ARM® Cortex™-M3 microcontroller.

"We are excited to see ready-made evaluation kits for the emerging IoT market," said Oyvind Birkenes, general manager, Wireless Connectivity Solutions, TI. "The Thingsquare software with TI's CC2538 SoC opens new application opportunities to further grow the Internet of Things."

"With direct Internet-connectivity for the radio chips, the Thingsquare evaluation kit makes prototyping and building IoT applications faster than ever before," said Thingsquare CEO Adam Dunkels. "The TI CC2538 SoC is a powerful platform that can be taken directly to production."

The Thingsquare evaluation kit is available for immediate purchase for 795 EUR from the Thingsquare website.
