Dragonfly Programmable ARM mbed SoM


MultiConnect Dragonfly

Cellular System-on-Module (SoM)

ARM mbed Cellular System-on-Module

The MultiConnect® Dragonfly™ embedded cellular SoM's are ready-to-integrate modules that offer developers the functionality of a programmable computing platform with the convenience of an onboard cellular radio all in one compact design. From a software perspective, the Dragonfly is compatible with the ARM® mbed™ programming platform 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.

As the first ARM mbed cellular SoM 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. Decision making and control is distributed to the edge, enabling data to be more actionable without the heavy lift required to implement complex M2M middleware and security protocols needed to deploy a low touch install.

Design in or Retrofit

The MultiConnect Dragonfly 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 requiring little or no modification to your existing design. Connecting to the Dragonfly 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 using the industry standard micro USB port affording you the quickest time to market when your application only requires basic cellular connectivity.

This powerful suite of hardware and software products greatly reduces your time to market and makes your Internet of Things (IoT) device a reality today.
