AE-CLOUD2 enables connection of IoT devices to Google Cloud IoT Core with minimum effort. Connections can be made using Wi-Fi, Ethernet, or using LTE IoT cellular technologies such as Cat-M1 and Cat-NB1 (NB-IOT).
The Renesas Synergy™ AE-CLOUD2 enables rapid evaluation, prototyping and development of global IoT connected applications using the Synergy Platform. Using the AE-CLOUD2 kit developers can easily connect IoT sensor devices to Google Cloud Platform globally using the most effective cellular IoT protocols today – Cat-M1 and Cat-NB1. It features the S5D9 MCU Group, the superset of the S5 MCU series. AE-CLOUD2 includes a variety of sensors such as lighting, microphone, temperature, humidity, pressure, air quality, geomagnetic, accelerometer, and gyroscope.
LTE IoT Cellular Technologies
AE-CLOUD2 can be used anywhere in the world as it has support for Cat-M1, Cat-NB1, 2G/EGPRS, as well as GPS. The kit complies with global regulatory certifications for FCC, CE, RoHs, WEEE and Japan MIC. The AE-CLOUD2 kit has been designed to work with CAT-M and NB-IoT Networks. Users should check that these networks are supported by cellular providers in their region and have the ability to configure the modem to establish a connection to an available regional network through a local cellular provider.
The AE-CLOUD2 kit can be used to connect to Google Cloud IoT Core using the Renesas Google Cloud IoT Core Cloud Application Projects (see link below). The Application Project provides and great starting point for connection to Google Cloud IoT with the ability to transition projects to active development.
