ACTE, the U.K’s specialist wireless Machine to Machine and telemetry electronic component distributor are delighted to introduce the Gemalto M2M Concept Board with an on board, global 3G/2G cellular module.

The Gemalto M2M concept board is ideal to get started with a Java enabled 3G and GPRS development and includes an interface allowing it to be connected to Arduino style sensor boards. The concept board includes a fully type approved, Cinterion EHS6, Java module enabling global Cellular 2G and 3G connectivity with on board processing capability.

The concept board offers full access for evaluation in a target application via 8 configurable GPIO lines. It has an on board charging circuit for battery support and solder pads for an optional battery for remote applications.

On board LED’s and physical Start / Off buttons provide a visual and push button interface.

David Taylor, PR Manager of ACTE comments “The Gemalto concept board is an intuitive, self contained evaluation platform with all key components required in a wireless M2M project on board. The addition of the Java Open Platform, at no premium to the user ensures that many applications can now be written directly to the 6MB RAM and 10MB Flash File System on board the EHS6 module.”
