CARDINAL COMPONENTS Announces Electro-Set Bluetooth Module for Rapid Prototyping

Wayne, NJ -- In producing Electro-Set, Cardinal is addressing a large and somewhat fragmented IOT design- development community with a clear opportunity for growth. Cardinal’s interface Electro-Set™ boards differentiate themselves from other manufacturers’ boards by providing a standard unified 6 Pin connector including I2C interconnect, allowing for rapid proof of concept design and prototyping.

Cardinal Electro-Set™ boards are platform agnostic and can interface with a wide range of processor/development boards on the market, so that, with a simple Cardinal interface shield, design engineers or hobbyists can use all of our boards on their preferred development platform. Initially this includes an Arduino UNO interface board and a MicroChip PIC processor board with USB. Future processor interface platforms will include Intel Galileo, NXP, Raspberry Pi, TI, and Renesas.

These platform boards will connect seamlessly to the Cardinal Electro-Set™, allowing direct plug-in via the unified 6 Pin connector to many sensors and functional building blocks and displays.The Electro-Set™ board-level product is a good match for designers, DIY, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments for IOT-enabled products quickly.

IOT Connectivity can be performed in many ways: 802.11, Bluetooth, Zigbee, GSM, USB etc. New products feature a line of Bluetooth modules, including Bluetooth LE version 4.0, and can be added as a part of the Electro-SetTM kit. Cardinal’s initial offerings include both USB and Bluetooth wireless connectivity. Datasheets and software with interface to the web are all inclusive.
