EMBEDDED SOFTWARE

A.N. Solutions applies the same modular approach in software, as it does in hardware. The various embedded software components are designed to interoperate seamlessly and can be easily mixed-and-matched depending on the exact needs of a client. The following @ANY software components are available:

  • @ANY Smart MAC Suite ("SMS") offers easy control of @ANY platform’s functionality via AT commands supporting all IEEE 802.15.4-based functions, as well as facilitates the addition of numerous custom features. The software suite is provided in two different versions, SMS Base and SMS Pro.
  • @ANY SMS Base version provides essential functionality designed for simple network topologies and evaluation purposes. It can be used to set up a coordinator - end device (star, P2P) topologies.
  • @ANY SMS Pro version facilitates development of complex applications and supports additional tree topologies with static routing, based on IEEE 802.15.4 MAC layer. This allows a large number of versatile example applications. SMS Pro also provides additional features such as the data broadcasting and a full function device (FFD) functionality. The data redirect feature enables users to set up tree network topologies. Finally, SMS Pro is designated to be a code base for customer requested extensions.
  • Mesh networking topologies supporting dynamic routing schemes, based on IEEE 802.15.4 that are compliant to ZigBee and 6LoWPAN can be implemented and customized on request.
