The LSR Wireless Shield debuts as a low-cost platform with customizable sensor/peripheral capabilities for the prototyping of wireless connected Internet of Things (IoT) products using SmartFusion2 system-on-chip field programmable gate arrays from Microsemi Corporation. Also available is the TiWiConnect Wi-Fi cloud connectivity reference design, which integrates the company’s SmartFusion2 KickStart development board with the LSR Wireless Shield. The combo provides the ability to quickly begin prototyping a cloud-based solution utilizing the TiWiConnect IoT platform from LS Research. The LSR Wireless Shield features dual wireless modules from LSR, Arduino-compatible shield and Pmod-compatible expansion connectors. The LSR Wireless Shield is populated with LSR’s TiWi-C-W WLAN b/g/n and SaBLE-x Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) certified wireless modules, offering ultra-low power performance for Wi-Fi and BLE that most IoT applications demand. Further, the TiWi-C-W can be quickly configured as a cloud agent providing seamless connectivity to LSR’s TiWiConnect end-to-end IoT platform, giving users a range of cloud implementation options. The Avnet LSR Wireless Shield is priced at $49.95. The suggested companion SmartFusion2 KickStart Kit is also available from Avnet, priced at $59.95. For more details and a demo, respectively, visit:
