The EM1001 is a full-featured Tibbo BASIC/C-programmable IoT Board with Ethernet, as well as optional Wi-Fi* and GPRS** connectivity. The EM1001 has four UARTs.
The board is self-sufficient – it does not require a host PCB to plug into. The RJ45 jack is mounted directly on the board. The EM1001 also contains a DC-DC regulator that can power the board and has additional current budget for external hardware.
The device's capabilities are further enhanced by the onboard flash memory with hardened fault-tolerant file system, as well as the EEPROM and RTC. The RTC backup supercapacitor can be installed on the board ("-S" ordering option) or connected externally.
The EM1001 has 54 general-purpose I/O lines and can control an external LCD, keypad, buzzer, card readers, serial devices, and other circuitry. All I/O lines are accessible through two dual-row connectors with the standard 2.54mm (100mil) pitch.
The EM1001 is a close relative of the EM1000 IoT module.
* Requires the GA1000 Wi-Fi add-on, which can be connected externally or piggybacked on top of the EM1001.
** Requires a standard GPRS modem (i.e. Simcom's SIM900), to be connected to the UART #4 of the EM1001.
