Rapid IoT Application Design with Telit’s Bravo Evaluation Kit

Written by Glyn High Tech

March 19, 2021

In the world of IoT, everything starts at the edge, with the devices and the data they generate: that’s The First Mile of IoT™. Start your IoT journey from The First Mile with Bravo, the complete, ready-to-use Telit evaluation kit.

The next generation of Telit IoT evaluation kits, Bravo is compatible with the most common open-hardware platforms. The kit features Telit ME910C1-WW, one of Telit’s flagship modules with broad frequency band coverage and LTE-M and NB-IoT support with 2G fallback. Bravo includes three Bosch Sensortec high-performance motion and environmental smart sensor chips to make Bravo a complete IoT development platform.

Bravo can be used either alone or coupled with an external CPU. In a standalone mode, Bravo can use Telit’s powerful AppZone API and running application software directly on the module integrated application processor, which allows the development and execution of applications on the module CPU itself. This kit can also connect to Arduino or Raspberry Pi, the two most popular and easy-to-use open-hardware platforms. It is ideal for experimenters and seasoned designers who require a complete and affordable platform, making IoT development fast and easy to deploy. 

Key Benifits

  • Ideal for rapid IoT application design; most hardware building blocks are readily available
  • Arduino stackable (UNO, Zero, Leonardo, Yun, etc.)
  • Raspberry Pi stackable (all models of Zero, 1, 2, 3 and 4)
  • Mounts ME910C1-WW module, one of Telit’s flagship modules, featuring LTE Cat M1/NB1 and GSM/GPRS connectivity
  • High-performance Bosch Sensortec motion and environmental sensors, providing accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, temperature, pressure, humidity and volatile organic compounds (VOC) information
  • Smooth software integration with dedicated libraries; can control external sensors easily with few lines of code
  • Access to USB and UART module communication ports (UART ports either directly to or through USB to serial converter)
  • Ready for OneEdge onboarding. OneEdge is Telit’s awardwinning, module-integrated software and services suite that accelerates development and simplifies management of IoT solutions
