CONNECT One, represented in Australia by Caelera , has released the CO110PC iChip.
It is designed for price-sensitive machine to machine applications such as automatic vehicle tracking, fleet management and utility metering. These applications require a high level of reliability and flexibility to access Internet Protocol (IP)-based cellular networks like GPRS and CDMA2000.
The CO110PC is a peripheral chip that mediates the connection between a host device and the Internet. It works with any host processor, any operating system, and any cellular modem that supports the AT command set from makers like Siemens, Wavecom, and SonyEricsson. It includes flash memory to store the Internet protocols and configuration parameters. It also has ample SRAM to prevent packet loss. It includes 10 simultaneous TCP and UDP sockets for multitasking during an Internet session and two TCP listening sockets for acting as a server. Its 1.8V ARM7TDMI core processor runs at up to 60MHz and includes a sleep mode with a typical power consumption of 10μA. The CO110PC measures 7mm x 7mm in an LQFP 48-pin package, and operates in the industrial temperature range.
