This module's user-friendly design is protected by industrial-grade ABS plastic. It has a built-in microprocessor, an address mode, LED data display, analog and digital I/O, and intelligent signal conditioning. It also includes eight different, independently configurable channels, online firmware update, a high noise immunity, and a power input range of (+10-48VDC). It has 1 kV surge protection on the power input, 3 kV ETF, and 8 kV ESD protection, plus it supports unipolar and bipolar inputs. It also supports a simple ASCII-based protocol, and Modbus/RTU protocol.

When you think of the DARPA Robotics Challenge, you may imagine complex humanoid contraptions made of metal and wires that move like a Terminator Series T-90. But what actually happened at the much-vaunted event was something just a bit different.
Traditional dev kits are based on a manufacturer’s microcontroller, radio module, or sensor device. The idea is to aid the design engineer in developing his or her own IoT prototype as quickly as possible. A not-so-traditional IoT development kit released by Bosch aims to simplify IoT prototyping even further.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
