Availability: In Stock

The flagship Cinterion® EHS6 is the 5th generation of Gemalto M2M’s Java embedded machine-to-machine (M2M) modules, which have simplified highly efficient, end-to-end industrial communication for the last decade. Gemalto’s Java strategy enables customers and partners to leverage the massive Java ecosystem by offering a powerful ARM11 architecture to reduce complexity and speed application integration. The tiny EHS6 module offers the latest Java ME 3.2 client runtime platform optimized for resource-constrained M2M applications. It significantly reduces total cost of ownership (TCO) and time to market by sharing internal resources such as memory, a large existing code base and proven software building blocks.

The improved Java concept uses Multi MIDlet Java execution to simultaneously host and run multiple applications and protocols. An extended security concept with the latest TLS/ SSL engine provides secure and reliable TCP/IP connectivity while an enriched internal flash file system enables royalty free firmware updates over-the-air (FOTA) when required. Sophisticated sandbox modeling and layered architectures simplify device management (DM) and separate mobile network operator approvals from application code development, allowing simultaneous progress of both phases for a shorter time to market.

Providing the capability for multiple designs from one solution, the newest addition to Gemalto M2M’s Evolution platform is an ideal module for M2M applications migrating from 2G to 3G that require cost efficiency along with global connectivity. EHS6 offers five band HSPA to support high bandwidth connectivity, enabling speeds up to 7.2 Mbps in downlink and 5.7 Mbps in uplink and rounds out the existing portfolio comprised of the Evolution platform.

EHS6 comes in Gemalto M2M’s unique Land Grid Array (LGA) package perfectly suited to the manufacturing needs of small, high-volume M2M devices with a focus on reliable and efficient processes. The ultra compact hardware design incorporates minimal power consumption, optimized heat dissipation even under harsh operating conditions and an extended product lifecycle to guarantee long product availability. EHS6 supports common industrial interfaces such as USB, serial interfaces, I²C and various GPIO’s to be connected with the Java engine.
