Get ready for mangOH green, a new category of open hardware launching at Embedded World

02 Feb. 2016
Author: Sierra Wireless
Designed specifically for cellular-enabled IoT applications, mangOH™ green provides a sensor-to-cloud platform for rapidly prototyping ideas and getting them to production quickly. The new open hardware will make it easy to develop industrial-grade products with vetted components, open source software, and a business-friendly open license to modify and reproduce the design.

Partnering with the open source Legato™ Linux platform on the WP Series of embedded modules from Sierra Wireless, mangOH green delivers 90% of an IoT prototype out-of-the-box so developers can begin creating their software and web applications immediately. This new open hardware is Arduino compatible and has plug-and-play IoT Connectors to add additional wireless, wired, and sensor technology seamlessly with: 
  • Built in libraries to connect any Arduino shield to the cloud (no need to change the sketch, just add the AV library to the sketch and you are good to go).
  • Automatic detection of IoT Connectors to load drivers and applications (no integration required, just plug in and start building your apps).
  • Data management service that builds local intelligence on the “edge” as well as pushes data to the big data servers.
Because no one can predict what combinations of technology will be required to power the next IoT killer app, mangOH green is actively partnering with companies like Element 14, Freescale, Linear Technology, Renfell Innovation, Sierra Wireless, Talon Communications, and Texas Instruments to add more IoT Connectors in order to make this the most flexible platform on the market for developing industrial-grade products.

mangOH green cuts through the hype of IoT by delivering a solid starting point so you can test and prototype ideas in weeks instead of months and get-to-market in months instead of years – before the window of opportunity closes or cash runs out. Welcome to a new category of open hardware platforms.
