Mobile and Internet of Things Quick Start Kit for IoT Product Development

Round Solution, a German-based supplier of products for the M2M and IoT market, offers this modular IoT hardware platform under the name PingPong. With the goal of aiding firmware developers, this hardware can be connected to extension boards in order to add a wide range of functional capabilities. PingPong allows the embedded system designer to create an IoT device with Internet capability in a very short time. Plug, push and play!

More Information

PingPong comes both wired and wireless depending on the requirements. The firmware of the RTOS version (available as Open Source Software/MBPLAB Harmony compatible) allows developers to create their applications individually in order to bring them to market more quickly.

  • The RTOS version runs with the world's fastest 32-bit microcontrollers in C / C ++.
  • The PingPong baseboard has a high-speed cellular module
  • There's a component for high-precision Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS), Internet, USB, CAN-Bus and many other components.
  • The Quick Start Kit includes optional access to the Cloud platform and related M2M Air simcard.
The QuickStart Kit includes:

  • Technical support in the biggest GSM & M2M forum
  • USB CDC Bootloader
  • 5x Source code examples for PingPong applications
  • 1x PingPong Iot Basic Board RTOS Version (PCB-HEDGN-R1501)
  • 1x Wi-Fi / Bluetooth Extension Board (EXT-PP-WIFI)
  • 1x ISM Extension Board (EXT-PP-ISM)
  • 1x USB 2.0 Mini Cable (CAN-DAT101-1500)
  • 1x Antenna cable U.FL to SMA/F jack 50mm (CAN-RFR551-50)
  • 1x RF cable U.FL to FME/M jack 0.81mm 100mm (CAB-RFR551-100)
  • 1x Power supply 12V, 1.6A (PS-ACDC-12V-1.6)
  • 1x Inside-glass-antenna for GPRS and UMTS, FME/F (ANT-GXW609-FME/F)
  • 1x Small GPS antenna patch with magnetic socket, SMA/M (ANT-NXM652-SMA/M)
  • 1x Embedded Wifi/Bluetooth antenna (ANT-WXP9520-100UFL)
  • 1x GPIO cable with 24-pin connector
  • Cumulocity 60 days free trial (SER-C8Y-TRIAL)
Introducing the PingPong IoT QuickStart Kit for Developers

Send and receive data

PingPong offers different possibilities for transmitting and receiving data. „Always on\ is the motto, whether in fixed state via a wired Ethernet connection, or on the go with the built-in GSM module via the mobile network. Thus, the PingPong guarantees the continuous transmission of data, which is e.g. detected by a sensor as well as received data to control for example a relay.


The PingPong can be connected to a wide variety of sensors to process and evaluate digital and analog measurements. Thus, for example, temperature values collected by a temperature sensor can be transferred via analog input to the PingPong.

With the digital inputs it can be distinguished between two measurements, comparable with a yes / no query. An application example is the measurement via contact sensor that detects whether a door is opened or closed.

Even industrial sensors in the 4-20mA range can be connected to the PingPong via current measurement Inputs. These can provide highly precise measurement data of temperature, power, humidity, etc., and are essential for industrial applications.

The 1-Wire Interface provides a connection for digital sensors based on the Maxim protocol for 1-wire enabled devices. The application areas include temperature and humidity measurements, as well as data logging.

With the CAN interface, PingPong can also interact with CAN enabled devices. For example, with the CANBUS interface of a vehicle. In this case data can be measured and read for analysis. For example, the CAN interface can read messages in J1939 protocol and get information about the car's speed, RPM, current fuel level, etc…

Remote control

The PingPong can be used to remote control processes via its outputs. The most common case is the use of the digital outputs in combination with a relay which can either enable or disable the power supply of an application. Examples include turning on and off of machines, motors and lamps.

Track and Trace

With its built-in GNSS module the PingPong can also be used to position, motion and determining the speed and acceleration. Especially in combination with the aforementioned points - telemetry and remote control - numerous possibilities for applications in the logistics sector are imaginable. One application example is the optimization of routes and fuel consumption in fleet management. If a vehicle consumes an unusually large amount of fuel over a short distance, this can cause a warning message that guides the vehicle to the nearest car service station.
