OpenWrt Goes Industrial

NetSoM is a family of open source, OpenWrt-driven System on Module (SoM) cores and the dev boards that host them. Combined with our library of sample code, these boards allow developers to go from zero to mass production in record time. We are making the NetSoM-W-2E available through this crowdfunding campaign. With support for Wi-Fi connectivity and two Ethernet phy ICs, it comes soldered to a dev board with two RJ-45 Ethernet ports.

NetSoM is currently in production as an industrial LoRaWAN gateway solution, but it has broad applicability to sectors as diverse as home automation, automotive networking, audiovisual data processing, and smart cities.

Sample Code

As part of this project, we are publishing software for a variety of useful NetSoM applications. Among them are:

  • An audio-streaming (SIP telephony) application using the WM8960 codec
  • A video-streaming (RTSP/MPEGTS) application using the OV5640 camera module
  • An Alexa-style voice-recognition application
  • A UDP-to-CAN forwarding application
  • A LoRaWAN gateway application

SoM Interfaces

The NetSoM-W-2E includes support for the following interfaces:

  • 2x Ethernet
  • Wi-Fi
  • 2x CAN
  • SAI
  • CSI
  • 2x USB
  • 2x SDHC
  • 2x SPI
  • 2x UART
  • 2x I²C

Dev Board Expandability

The Dual-Ethernet Dev Board for the NetSoM-W-2E is compatible with the following external modules:

  • An audio module
  • A video module
  • A 2G mobile data module
  • A 3G mobile data module
