  • DTR / DSR Handshaking and RTS / CTS Flow control lines
  • Full Duplex for simultaneous communication between sender and receiver
  • Low Power Consumption
  • Over-the-Air Upgrade (OTAU) available

GLYN Promote LM at Embedded World 2017

We are proud to announce our distributor GLYN GmbH will be promoting LM Technologies products at Embedded World 2017, Nürnberg on the 14th – 16th of March 2017.

They plan to present a flexible IoT gateway for different extension options, including LM products.

Instead of developing a complete custom IoT solution, just use a flexible platform and plug-in the right customised extension board!

This will allow easier and faster development of the core application function and speed up time-to-market.

Come and see GLYN at the show, and see the possibilities how LM product’s can provide additional wireless connectivity such as WiFi and/or Bluetooth® to this gateway platform.

GLYN can be found on Stand 1-306 in Hall 1 – See Stand Information Here
