  • End-Device certified Skywire cellular modems provide a path to production
  • Complete mbed code provided


This Demo Is Probably of Interest If You:

  • Need a quick proof of concept
  • Have to demonstrate cellular connectivity to a customer or client
  • Don’t want to build your own Thing for your IoT demo


Differentiation - This Demo Highlights

  • End-Device certified modems require no Carrier certifications to use on the cellular network
  • XBeeR footprint makes your design futureproof
  • Global options for devices deployed or moved anywhere in the world




The NXP FRDM-K64F is the development board for the NXP Kinetis series, providing an affordable, flexible way to build prototypes. For applications requiring cellular connectivity, the NimbeLink Sensor Shield plugs into the FRDM-K64F development board and, in turn, accepts a plug-in NimbeLink Skywire end-device certified cellular modem, providing quick cellular access. This first-in-the-industry plug-in cellular solution is easier and more compact than USB or other modem connection options, and the pre-certified Skywire embedded modem eliminates the cost and complexity of obtaining carrier certifications.


The NimbeLink shield comes with four integrated MEMS sensors for easy proof-of-concept development. Sensors include an accelerometer, a temperature sensor, an atmospheric pressure sensor, light sensor, a humidity sensor, an accelerometer and two pushbutton switches. The shield also provides headers similar to those on an Arduino board. These accept any of hundreds of compatible expansion boards allowing the addition of capabilities like GPS, screens, motor controllers, and more. The NimbeLink Sensor Shield requires 5-12vdc power and accepts a variety of antennas.
