Wireless Link Announces Software Developers Kit for Low-Cost Cellular Data Modem.
Rapid Integration of Inexpensive Cellular Modems Now Possible
for Industrial Telemetry Applications
Wireless Link Corp., a leading developer of wireless communications 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 for OEM 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, 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), enabling OEM development of both embedded systems and Windows DLL 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."
Pricing and Availability
The CVDM Software Developers Kit includes a Wireless Link CVDM-3 3W cellular telephone module, Hayes AT compatible modem daughter card, AMPS cellular antenna, PC interface test module with cable connector, Wireless Link's Cell Assist GUI software for Microsoft Windows95, and complete technical documentation. The Developers Kit can be ordered directly from Wireless Link for $4900. The CVDM-3 cell phone board can be ordered separately for $108 in large OEM volumes.
