Hardware Options

For the development of embedded IoT devices we offer two hardware variants. The Tributech OEM Module itself, which can be directly integrated into the PCB hardware design as a SoM and an Arduino Shield for prototyping. The shield can be used with all popular hardware development platforms like Arduino Uno, STM32 Nucelo, Infineon XMC Relax Kit and more.

Tributech OEM Module

The Tributech OEM module is packaged as a system-on-module (SoM) to allow an easy integration into the hardware design of embedded devices.

Hardware Design

An embedded IoT device that integrates the Tributech OEM Module into its hardware design typically consists of three parts. Part 1: the Tributech OEM Module which takes care of connectivity, data management, configurations, updates, and security. Part 2: the application-specific micro-controller which takes care of data pre-processing and business logic. Part 3: the sensors and interfaces needed for the application.
