On-board KTWM102 RF Module. 

Brings the whole functionality and performance of the best-in-class Thread Certified 802.15.4 Network Co-Processor to the user in a USB stick form factor.

Business Class Device. 

  • Handy built-in UART connector allows to easily link to any host (supplied cable).

  • Two-input power multiplexer enables dongle to be powered by USB connector or through UART cable by the host with seamless transition between both paths.

  • An useful signaling led to know device’s status at all time and a cute removable USB enclosure to keep it from harm.

Border Router

KTDG102 Dongle is a plug-and-play device capable of turning a Linux-based host into Border Router for Thread Network without requiring deep technical knowledge. When put together, USB dongle and host behave as a single entity forwarding traffic to/from Thread Network and the Local Area Network.
In line with those capabilities, Kirale delivers a fully-integrated networking device, KTBRN1 Thread Border Router, with which we intend to expedite development of Thread-enabled products and reduce their time-to-market.
Portable Reference Design.

Kirale’s Border Router is structured on the synergy between KiNOS Thread Stack and any Linux-based system through few simple service configurations and traffic forwarding rules, allowing to port it on a wide range of off-the-shelf hardware platforms.

Plug-and-Play Thread Interface.

Dongle takes advantage of KiNOS Ethernet-over-USB capability, thus just plug it on your platform and it will automatically work as one more Ethernet interface, providing your applications seamless IP connectivity and allowing to reach your Thread devices from any IP-based network.

Dual Stack IPv4/IPv6 Network.

As in any other Linux-based router, there are an endless list of open-source IPv4/IPv6 software packages in order to perform all tasks required for Thread Border Router. Relay Thread management to KTWM102 Module and squeeze the most out of Linux power in native or virtualized environment.
