Embedded IoT gateway allows easy wireless integration for industrial designs

December 05, 2017 // By Ally Winning
Lantronix has launched a new postage stamp sized embedded IoT gateway. The xPico 200 is intended for industrial applications and can use Ethernet, WiFi and Bluetooth/BLE for connectivity. To make the device more suitable for industrial applications, it offers a high level of security and comprehensive management features.

Continuing a long-standing partnership, the xPico is built around Cypress’ CYW43907 802.11n Wi-Fi MCU. Combined with Lantronix’ intelligent networking engine for simplified development, the gateway will enable industrial, medical and transportation developers to quickly and securely add wireless networking to their products.

The rugged xPico 200 offers dual-band 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi and is compatible with the Lantronix MACH10 IoT platform. Production devices will be available at the beginning of 2018, but a soon to be launched Evaluation Kit will allow developers to start designs using the gateway.
