Prototype

Accelerate hardware development by prototyping with the same components that you will use in production.

Breadware prototyping solutions enable rapid assembly of “works-like” prototypes using the same components that will eventually be part of a final product. Breadware’s customizable Hardware Development Kits (HDKs) support multiple wireless communication protocols and processor families that we feature in our core components library.

Why Prototype?

Advantages

  • Slash time to market and learning curves
  • Do more with existing staff (no need to hire additional IoT, connectivity or security experts)
  • Build prototypes and run trials at a fraction of the cost
  • Avoid costly obsolescence of prototypes by using the same components as in your final product
  • Designs are open and available, allowing customers to rapidly build products based upon them.

Supported Communication Protocols

Which communication protocol is best for my project?

Considerations

  1. Required Range
    • Distance between connection points
  2. Throughput
    • Type of data that needs to be sent/received and frequency of transmission
  3. Power Consumption
    • Required lifespan
  4. Topology
    • Nodes required per gateway

Other Important Considerations

  1. Security
    • Environmental requirements
  2. Accessibility
    • User access and ease-of-use
