Today’s OEMs – and their customers – need end-to-end hardware/software solutions to actively manage their device portfolios, gather data from devices in the field and deliver real-time updates and security patches as needed. Digi ConnectCore Cloud Services deliver the manageability they need to enable secure, over-the-air (OTA) software updates, access device data, and perform remote diagnostics, command and control. Digi ConnectCore Cloud Services also provide API access enabling custom applications and remote dashboards empowering OEMs to create innovative customer service plans.
Digi ConnectCore Security Services enable OEMs to maintain the security of products during their entire lifecycle and empower device makers to solve the ongoing challenge of keeping products secure after release. The services include the analysis and monitoring of a custom software bill of material (SBOM) and binary image running on Digi ConnectCore SOMs for security risks and vulnerabilities. To help remediate identified issues, the services provide a curated vulnerability report highlighting critical concerns, a security software layer including patches for common vulnerabilities, and consulting services.
Together, the two services provide a comprehensive software foundation that, in conjunction with Digi’s family of ConnectCore system-on-modules, enable OEMs to deliver highly secure, connected IoT products with increased product quality, improved technical support, and a stronger end-customer experience. Both Digi ConnectCore services support the entire family of Digi ConnectCore systems-on-modules.
Digi, an ST Authorized Partner, also announced the general availability of its Digi ConnectCore MP157 system-on-module (SOM), which leverages the STMicroelectronics STM32MP157C microprocessor and has a fully integrated dual-band Wi-Fi/BT interface. Now available in developer kits from Digi’s global channel partners, the tiny ConnectCore MP15 is ideal for handheld products with cameras and/or displays such as medical devices, environmental test equipment, industrial-grade human machine interfaces, or headless devices such as EV charging stations and renewable-energy controllers. By addressing the need to build intelligent, connected, and secure wireless products for healthcare, transportation, and industrial sectors, Digi ConnectCore MP1 SOMs offer unparalleled flexibility and scalability. The highly integrated solution includes a complete set of development tools, design support, software, and security building blocks to speed time to market.
“Digi ConnectCore Services continues our mission to reduce the complexity OEMs are facing with implementing full end-to-end industrial IoT solutions and simplify device security and management for our customers,” said Andreas Burghart, Senior Product Manager for Digi’s Embedded division. “The combination of innovative SOM hardware and software, cloud-based services, and comprehensive security improve our customers’ ability to deliver and manage secure, cost-effective solutions and extend our leadership in embedded systems.”
“Using the Digi ConnectCore MP1 SOM with integrated wireless capabilities reduces the design complexity significantly for OEMs, especially for companies that have designed products using the STM32 microcontroller portfolio,” said Jean-Philippe Moreno, Product Marketing Manager, STMicroelectronics. “For developers now moving into the higher performance microprocessor space, the Digi SOM solution reduces the risk significantly and helps to make this transition.”
