Wireless Link Announces Software Developers Kit for Low-Cost Cellular Data Modem.SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 12, 1997--
Rapid Integration of Inexpensive Cellular Modems Now Possible
for Industrial Telemetry telemetry
Highly automated communications process by which data are collected from instruments located at remote or inaccessible points and transmitted to receiving equipment for measurement, monitoring, display, and recording. Applications
Wireless Link Corp., a leading developer of wireless communications wireless communications
System using radio-frequency, infrared, microwave, or other types of electromagnetic or acoustic waves in place of wires, cables, or fibre optics to transmit signals or data. technology, announced immediate availability of its Cellular Voice/Data Module Software Developers Kit.
The Software Developers Kit includes all necessary hardware and software components to enable quick evaluation of the Wireless Link CVDM-3 cellular modem board, and to effectively integrate the CVDM-3 into remote voice and data control systems, including vehicle and asset tracking applications.
The Wireless Link CVDM-3 is a low-cost, fully integrated 3W AMPS cellular telephone module specifically developed for industrial applications. The CVDM-3 incorporates an on-board CPU CPU
in full central processing unit
Principal component of a digital computer, composed of a control unit, an instruction-decoding unit, and an arithmetic-logic unit. for OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) The rebranding of equipment and selling it. The term initially referred to the company that made the products (the "original" manufacturer), but eventually became widely used to refer to the organization that buys the products and control software, a real-time clock with lithium battery backup for event monitoring, a 34-pin connector for interface to external devices, and a peripheral connector for a Hayes 2400bps modem daughter card.
Additional peripheral circuits may also be used instead of the modem. By omitting the user interface hardware, the CVDM-3 effects a fully integrated voice and data telemetry unit for industrial applications at minimal cost.
The Software Developers Kit includes Wireless Link's CellAssist graphical user interface graphical user interface (GUI)
Computer display format that allows the user to select commands, call up files, start programs, and do other routine tasks by using a mouse to point to pictorial symbols (icons) or lists of menu choices on the screen as opposed to having to , which runs under Windows95, for communication between a PC development platform and the CVDM-3 module. CellAssist provides OEM system developers with immediate access and control of the voice and data telemetry options of the CVDM-3 board.
The Software Developers Kit also includes complete "C" source code for Wireless Link's Packetized Data Interface (PDI PDI Protein Disulfide Isomerase
PDI Personal Docente e Investigador (Spanish: Personal Educational and Investigating)
PDI Pre Delivery Inspection
PDI Professional Development Institute ), enabling OEM development of both embedded systems and Windows DLL (1) See data link layer.
(2) (Dynamic Link Library) An executable program module in Windows that performs one or more functions at runtime. DLLs are not launched by the user; they are called for by an executable program or by other DLLs. software to manage operation of the CVDM-3 cell phone board.
"The Software Developers Kit is a complete package that our own engineers have used for rapid development of custom telemetry application for several clients," explained Dr. Hamid Najafi, president of Wireless Link. "Now OEM system integrators can utilize the ubiquitous, well-established cellular network for their industrial wireless data applications by incorporating our low-cost CVDM-3 module."
