TS-IRIDIUM is a PC/104 (standard format) peripheral board that works with all Technologic Systems x86 and ARM embedded PCs to provide connectivity through the Iridium Satellite Service.

Hardware

Iridium's global, low latency Short Burst Data (SBD) service is the ideal solution for machine-to-machine (M2M) communication to and from anywhere on Earth. The service uses a very small, rugged terminal with standard interfaces and low power consumption to enable communication with everything from containers and trucks to planes and ships. Applications are limited only by imagination. SBD is currently integrated into world-wide applications that serve industries such as Oil and Gas, Rail, Maritime, Aeronautics, Utilities, Scientific Research, and Government/Military.

Iridium SBD is a simple network transport capability for transmitting short data messages between equipment and a centralized system. Messages can be text or binary. Multiple messages can be sent over a short interval of time.

At the terminal, an RS-232 serial interface provides bi-directional communications with the terminal and enables messages to be sent and received. From the infrastructure side, a standard email or IP-based interface is available.

NOTE: Software applications developed for your hardware platform must be approved and certified by Iridium. Although there is no charge for this certification; it does require a several weeks of lead time. Temporary approval may be granted for testing.

Software

An API for the Celestech Iridium modem using the Technologic Systems SBC products is now available by contacting Celestech via email.

Note: After acquiring the software and prior to using the Iridium network, your software application must be approved and certified by Iridium. Although there is no charge for this certification, it does require several weeks of lead time. Temporary approval may be granted for testing.

The API provided with the TS-IRIDIUM board enables quick development of Linux SBD applications. It provides a library of easy to use C functions that developers can use to interact with the Iridium 9602 SBD modem, providing access to a wide range of the Iridium modem functionalities from powering and configuring the modem to the transmission and retrieval of data from Iridium's satellite network, thus simplifying the many interactions that SBD applications need to have with the modem.
