Connect One Semiconductor has released the II-EVB-600, an evaluation board for programming the iChip CO2064, the company’s small footprint Internet Protocol (IP) controller that targets cost- and resource-constrained machine-to-machine (M2M) applications, where encryption and security is required. The II-EVB-600 supports many upper layer Internet protocols using either AT+i commands or the iChipConfig Utility, and can be used for evaluation and development of secure WiFi, LAN, cellular or dial-up networking, offering developers maximum flexibility in connectivity. The evaluation board acts as a complete stand-alone platform which enables developers to fully test out, develop and debug the functionality of the CO2064’s firmware without any modifications to the customer's development environment, and it comes loaded for connectivity. Complementing the two iChipSec CO2064 chips included for prototyping, the RoHS-compliant II-EVB-600 offers two USB host and device connectors, two male-female RS-232 DB-9 connectors, RJ-45 connector, RJ-11 connector, SocketModem, WiFi daughter board with antenna, 4-pin TWI connector, two 6-pin SPI connectors and SIM holder with either 110- or 220-V power supply.
