TS-IRIDIUM Board 

Celestech is offering a ruggedized 9602 Short Burst Data modem PC/104 board (TS-IRIDIUM) allowing access to a wide variety of standard hardware. Celestech can help you with developing and certifying your SBD applications using this platform. The board has a pair of SMA antenna connectors for an Iridium antenna and an output to an external GPS receiver. The board measures 3.5 x 3.75 inches (8.9 x 9.5 cm) and can be stacked as part of any PC/104 system. It comes with an Application Program Interface software library for Linux. The TS-IRIDIUM is designed with power savings in mind and allows the application to have extensive control over power consumption. The Iridium Certified board/modem/software is available now!

The TS-IRIDIUM board makes it easy to pair the 9602 SBD terminal with a family of readily available, standards-based computers and other peripherals as well as a proven software development environment to allow for rapid development and deployment of SBD applications without the need to develop custom hardware. A wide range of compatible, inexpensive, low power consumption, rugged computers and peripherals are available from our partner Technologic Systems (http://www.embeddedARM.com/). The range of available devices include: Single Board Computers (ARM, Intel), Networking (Ethernet, WiFi, zigbee), modems (cellular, telephone), digital and analog I/O (DAC, ADC, IDE), power supplies, memory modules, real time clocks, relays, video, and more.

 

The TS-IRIDIUM board comes with a Linux API that allows for rapid integration of the Iridium SBD functionality into your software application. The API provides a simple procedure call interface that encapsulates the functions needed to manage the sending and receiving of SBD messages using the TS-IRIDIUM board. The API library has been certification tested along with the TS-IRIDIUM board by Iridium.
