EDN Hot 100 products of 2014

Minnetonka, Minn. (January 12, 2015) Digi International, (NASDAQ:DGII), today announced that EDN has named the company’s ConnectCore 6 Wireless M2M Module as one of the “100 Hot Products of 2014.” The 2014 EDN Hot 100 highlights the electronics industry’s most significant products of the year based on innovation, significance, usefulness, and popularity.

The ConnectCore 6 is an ultra-compact and highly integrated system-on-module solution based on the Freescale i.MX6 Cortex-A9 processor family. The module's small form factor and design, which requires no connectors, reduces manufacturing costs and makes it easier than ever to add wireless capabilities to portable devices. It’s ideal for transportation, security, and other industrial applications.

With processor speeds up to 1.2 GHz and fully pin-compatible single-/dual-/quad-core variants, the ConnectCore 6 offers a future-proof platform solution with scalable performance and pre-certified wireless connectivity for 802.11a/b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0, including Bluetooth Low Energy.

“The ConnectCore 6 significantly reduces design risk in a reliable form even in the most demanding quad-core system configurations,” said Joel Young, chief technology officer for Digi. “We’re proud of its low-profile, surface-mount design that fosters flexibility, reduces complexity, and speeds time to market for successful embedded and wireless solutions.”

“Of the many thousands of products announced during the past year, the EDN Hot 100 are products that especially caught the attention of our editors and readers. We are pleased to share the tradition of showcasing these technologies as we celebrate the 21st anniversary of this program,” said Rich Pell, executive and chief technical editor, EDN.
