Multiple I/O interfaces for connecting almost any "Thing"
Product will be available for Europe in 2018
The all new MultiConnect® DragonflyTM Nano embedded cellular SoM’s are the industry’s smallest form factor, end device approved devices that support a complete IoT operating system. These fully certified and MNO approved, ready-to-integrate LTE Cat M1 modules offer developers the functionality of a programmable computing platform with the convenience of an onboard cellular radio all in one very compact design. Dragonfly Nano is programmable using Arm® MbedTM allowing for rapid prototyping, development and deployment.
With its integrated Cortex®-M4 processor, developers can host their application and have access to a full suite of interfaces for connecting sensors or other remote assets. The Dragonfly Nano is over 50% smaller, maintains plug compatibility and uses the same 40-pin board to board connector found in the standard sized Dragonfly family of SoM’s providing a full range of connectivity and carrier options.
End device certified by leading carriers Low power modes extend life of battery powered devices Extended coverage means assets deep inside buildings are now reachable Long solution lifecycle reduces redesign time and cost Family of cellular options including several 4G, 3G and 2G models
Host Your Applications
As the first and only Arm® Mbed™ cellular SoM family listed on mbed.org that is industry certified and deployment ready, applications can be written and compiled quickly online using developer friendly libraries, downloaded and hosted within the Dragonfly Nano. Decision making and control is distributed to the edge, enabling data to be more actionable without the heavy lift required to implement complex IoT middleware and security protocols needed to deploy a low touch install.
Design in or Retrofit
The MultiConnect Dragonfly Nano can be used as an embedded cellular SoM providing the maximum in design and application flexibility or it can be used as an embedded cellular modem controlled through AT commands requiring little or no modification to your design. Connecting to the Dragonfly Nano through its 40-pin board-to-board connector gives you access to all the programmable I/O interfaces. You can also connect to the Dragonfly Nano using the industry standard micro USB port affording you the quickest time to market when your application only requires basic cellular connectivity.
Power Saving Modes
Extended Discontinuous Reception (eDRX) mode increases the length of time the end device can sleep before it has to check in with the network which saves power. Power Saving Mode (PSM) allows the device to notify the network that it is going to sleep or dormant indefinitely only waking up based on user defined timer. Once the device wakes up and transmits it will stay awake for a few frames of time in case the network needs to reach that device. A device using PSM transmitting a small amount of data once per day could last many years using 2 AA batteries. (Note: Some power saving modes will be available in a future firmware release.)
