Cloud Edge and Device Gateways

The power of an Arm v8 64-bit processor combined with the simple integration of a SMARC module.

Containers at the farthest corners of the edge

The uCLS1012A-IoT supports standard Linux container platforms, making cloud native possible all the way to the edge and beyond.

A shining light in a foggy world

High-speed USB3, SATA, PCIe and two highspeed Ethernets make the uCLS1012A-IoT perfect for edge storage, cloud edge caching or store and forward gateways. Make sure your on-premises performance shines no matter what the upstream is.

The 10-4 on 15.4 networks

Supporting an optional microcontroller running 802.15.4 network stacks for BLE, Thread® or Zigbee®. The uCLS1012A-IoT module makes the perfect aggregator or gateway to connect you to your wireless devices.

Edge software that gives you the edge

With standard Linux platform support in Buildroot and available Mbarx Secure IoT gateway or SIPxtream voice/video communications stacks, unleash your next edge application with the uCLS1012A-IoT.
