IoTize’s line of TapNLink products for Bluetooth and NFC communication is available to customers around the world from Digi-Key Electronics. Under a new distribution agreement, Digi-Key will resell a range of products from IoTize, designers and manufacturers of plug-n-play wireless connectivity solutions for microcontroller-based embedded systems.
TapNLink products allow the user to take an existing MCU application that does not have wireless connectivity and add it using only 2 GPIO pins and without modifying the application’s original firmware.
This approach is a Kickstarter for companies that are fast-tracking their wireless integration projects to meet customers’ changing expectations. TapNLink reduces design effort and risks by a factor of ten, speeding time-to-market of smartphone-based interfaces for product configuration, monitoring, and control.
Applications that would benefit from the instant wireless connectivity include factory machinery – control and monitoring, cable replacement, point-to-point data transfer, building automation, automated lighting, and inventory and tracking systems.
