Edge compute, messaging, data caching, sync, and ML inference capabilities for connected devices

AWS Partner Network logoDigi ConnectCore® embedded solutions along with AWS Greengrass are designed to support edge devices with cloud connectivity.

Based on the NXP i.MX line of application processors, Digi ConnectCore embedded SOMs and SBCs deliver the compute power necessary to run Greengrass Core and interact directly with the cloud.

Developers can use AWS Greengrass to integrate Lambda functions locally and then conveniently deploy them to connected devices at the edge of the network.
