Kirale Technologies has obtained Thread Certification for both its Network Operation System, known as KiNOS, and its first product based on it, the KTWM102 RF Module. With this achievement, the KiNOS stack becomes one of the few Thread certified stacks.
Kirale Real-Time Network Operating System, called KiNOS, is a high-performance, secure, robust and scalable Thread Certified Stack tailored for wireless low-power IP-enabled embedded devices and suitable for all Thread roles from ultra-low-power End Devices to powerful Border Routers. Fully-engineered by Kirale Technologies, KiNOS has been built from scratch to optimize footprint and performance. Designed to be small, simple and easy-to-use and with a very portable source code structure that facilitates its customization and portability.
KiNOS has full support for all Thread roles, enables multiple host interfaces for easy integration and deploys power-saving strategies to achieve ultra-low power consumption. Get the best Thread Certified Stack available today and focus on your core business.
In order to get the Thread Certification, the Kirale devices went through a set of more than 150 test cases in an independent Authorized Test Lab to assure specification conformance and interoperability with a mix of devices running four previously certified stacks. The testing involves situations like node commissioning, network formation or network management. The KiNOS certified stack supports all the possible devices capabilities: Sleepy End Device (SED), Minimal End Device (MED), Full Thread Device (FTD – Router and REED), Full End Device (FED), Commissioner and Border Router.
The KTWM102 product series provides Thread connectivity featuring the most energy-efficient ARM® Cortex®-M0+, a best‑in-class 2.4GHz RF transceiver and a high-efficiency on-board chip antenna or W.FL connector for long range applications. It carries the “Thread Certified Component”, which allows manufactures to use it in their products and apply for Certification by Similarity to the Thread Group.
