Agora

Multi-Functional Wireless Node with Integrated Sensors

Enabling Your Connected World

Agora is a robust, standalone embedded modem with many on-board sensors and plastics options. and the ultimate cellular modem solution for IoT integration. Wireless options include any combination of Cellular CAT M1, LoRa, and Bluetooth 5.0/BLE, while sensor options include temperature, humidity, pressure, air quality, distance, sound, light, 6-axis accel/gyro, and 9-axis accel/gyro. The Agora board itself can be integrated into your own system using using either two 10-pin headers or its unique Tectonic Edge™ board-edge connector. Choose whether to power it from its own battery, a US-style AC wall outlet, or your own hardware. Certifications include PTCRB, AT&T TRENDI, ARM MBED Enabled, and ARM Pelion Enabled.

Production-Ready | With Plastics + Battery

The Production-Ready Agora configuration comes complete with its custom plastic enclosure, internal LiPo battery, and internal Agora board. Complete with a USB-micro cable for battery charging, the Production-Ready Agora is prepared for deployment into any kind of sensing and connectivity application. Ideal for applications involving quick deployment, periodic wireless transmission, environmental monitoring, and more.

Development Kit | Flidor + Agora + extras

The Flidor board is specially designed to complement Agora as the ultimate development board. Featuring an NXP OpenSDA DAPLink debug circuit built around a K20DX microcontroller, Flidor provides an ideal solution to programming and debugging your Agora boards. Flidor also breaks out all accessible connections on the Agora into pin headers, jacks, connectors, and pushbuttons for the most simple of development experiences. Ideal for development with Agora and other Tectonic Edge™ compatible devices by Embedded Planet.

OEM | Modem Configuration

The OEM Agora configuration is the option for those who are ready to dive into a direct design solution. As a robust embedded modem it can be seamlessly integrated into your existing board design with its 2×10-pin modem header or unique Tectonic Edge™ board edge connector. Bring premium connectivity to your system without having to manage external connections or power sources. Ideal for applications requiring integration with an existing (or custom) board design.

Mains-Powered | US-Style Mains Input

The Mains-Powered Agora configuration comes equipped with an AC-DC converter and custom housing so you can plug your Agora right into a US-style mains line and forget about it while it works for you. With the power budget to enable unrestricted continuous cellular transmission for years on end, there’s no limit on the range of uses for it. Ideal for applications with high power draw, set-it-and-forget-it deployments, LiPo restrictions, and more.
