EM2001 Programmable IoT Board

The EM2001 is a full-featured Tibbo BASIC/C-programmable IoT Board with Ethernet, as well as optional Wi-Fi*, BLE* (Bluetooth Low-Energy), and 4G/LTE cellular** connectivity. The EM2001 has four UARTs. The board offers substantial speed and functionality improvements over its predecessor — the original EM1001.

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 EM2001 also contains a DC-DC regulator that can power the board and has an additional current budget for external hardware.

The device's capabilities are further enhanced by the onboard flash memory hosting a hardened fault-tolerant file system, as well as the EEPROM and RTC with a backup battery.

The EM2001 has 56 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 EM2001 is a close relative of the EM2000 IoT module.

* Requires the WA2000 add-on, which can be connected externally or piggybacked on top of the EM2001.
** Requires a standard 4G/LTE modem (i.e., Simcom's SIM7500) to be connected to a UART of the EM2001.

Serial-over-IP (SoI) on Tibbo IoT Boards

Controlling a device over the IP network using a serial-to-IP converter (a.k.a. "device server", "serial-to-Ethernet converter") remains one of the most popular ways of network-enabling existing products.

Our programmable IoT boards can run a ready-to-use serial-over-IP (SoI) application. This application is written in Tibbo BASIC and is open-source. Upload the app onto a board, configure the settings, and you have a time-tested IoT gateway — no coding required.

Another possibility is to use our SoI application as the basis for your project. Take it and modify it in any way you please!
