Telit GE863-Pro3 dual-processor

Atmel and Telit have been harnessing the expertise of microcontrollers from Atmel for developing M2M modules.

The GE863-Pro3 is the first product in Telit’s dual-processor range to feature an Atmel AT91SAM9260 ARM9-based processor running the application in tandem with a dedicated processor for GPRS communication.

It provides the high processing power and flexibility to support rapidly changing M2M requirements that demand more features and processing power at ever-shorter intervals.

Its standard form factor and easy integration make the module suitable for applications such as POS terminals or fleet management.

The core of the device is the AT91SAM9260, an ARM9-based embedded processor that delivers processing power above 200 MIPS. Whereas in the past just one sub-50 MIPS microcontroller took care of alternate communication and application tasks, the additional AT91SAM9260 processor now controls only real-time applications, while the second GPRS processor handles GPRS communications transactions.

The dual processor is designed as a small footprint platform that can be adapted to rapidly changing demand in the M2M market without the need to redesign the hardware. This is ensured by a standard form factor, tried-and-tested ball grid array (BGA) assembly and sufficient integrated memory for software applications.

The dual-processor range can be adapted to the particular needs of specialist areas through expansion options. The Wi-Fi add-on WA100-Dual, facilitates the wireless connections over short distances. Handheld devices and scanners on the loading ramp can thus transfer information on stock management or facilitate data transfer with trucks.
