The m2m application platform
Being based on Java™, the TC65 provides developers working in the machine-to-machine sector (m2m) with a sophisticated developer's software platform. It also incorporates top-quality GSM/GPRS technology including quad-band radio technology and GPRS Class 12. Its various interfaces - GPIOs, I 2 C bus and SPI bus - and the TCP/IP stack allow the module to be integrated in virtually any m2m application. The launch of the TC65 marks the introduction of a new, modern generation of wireless modules to business fields like vending machines, point of sales, remote metering and the security sector.
Apart from saving you development time, the Java™ support offered by the TC65 reduces your costs, as the module requires no additional hardware such as a controller, memory or a TCP/IP stack. Java™ is a complete software platform in itself that enables you to develop brand-new m2m applications without the burden of licence fees and dependence on other manufacturers' technology. Owing to its IMP 2.0 profile, the wireless module allows you to make software updates easily and securely via the air interface (OTAP). In addition to this, it enables data encoding in applications that involve transmitting data in a secure environment (e.g. HTTPS and PKI). The TC65 can process data at high speed thanks to the integrated ARM7 processor, and the memory it requires is provided by its 1.7 MB Flash memory.
Full type approval (FTA) plus worldwide approval from all of the large mobile network operators conforming to standards such as R&TTE, FCC, UL, IC, GCF and PTCRB round off the TC65's suitability as a developer's platform. By using this wireless module, applications engineers can reduce the total cost of ownership as well as put their new m2m applications onto the global market faster.
Not only that, but the TC65 is entirely lead-free, thereby meeting the requirements of the EU's Directive on the Restriction of Specific Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (RoHS) .
The following points are the key features of the TC65:
Siemens won't leave you in the lurch once you've chosen a suitable product; we'll also give you comprehensive support regarding product design, spanning everything from the initial design stage and Java™ technology right up to product approval.
