Kontron, a leading global provider of IoT/Embedded Computer Technology (ECT) and Inflight Entertainment and Connectivity (IFE&C) solutions, today announces its collaboration with ThinKom to demonstrate and make readily available a highly flexible Ka-band SATCOM solution to the avionics market.
The multi-modem architecture consists of Kontron’s proven ACE Flight 4783 dual modem MODMAN server integrated with ThinKom’s ThinAir® Ka2517 phased-array satcom antenna system that offers unparalleled service provider agility. Airlines and integrators can leverage the open architecture solution, which enables multi-orbit interoperability between GSO and NGSO satellites, to provide more coverage and become entirely network agnostic today, while being future-proof for tomorrow.
Kontron’s ACE Flight 4783 Dual Modem MODMAN provides unmatched performance in the smallest footprint by combining server and networking-grade hardware with two satellite modems in a compact, ARINC 791/792 4MCU compliant system. To further enhance capabilities, the MODMAN can be expanded by integrating the Auxiliary Modem Unit (AMU) to support a third modem. This allows extra coverage options, such as another GEO modem or incorporating MEO or LEO connectivity for multi-orbit operations.
ThinKom’s proven and reliable, high-throughput ThinAir Ka2517 antenna seamlessly operates with multiple modems and networks. It delivers robust, highly efficient satellite communications operating across multiple orbits, packaged in a low-profile footprint to minimize drag and save on fuel.
“We are committed to providing customers with the right building blocks to differentiate their offerings and gain a competitive advantage in the IFE&C market,” explains Tony Squeglia, Business Development Director at Kontron. “Our active involvement in the Seamless Air Alliance, coupled with organizations within the satellite connectivity market, like ThinKom, is paving the way for an open platform approach with future-proof capabilities.”
“ThinKom’s antennas are proven as the industry’s most reliable and efficient, and by partnering with Kontron, this complete system enables airlines and integrators to quickly deploy a network-agnostic solution that offers an array of modem combinations, not only for today, but also for tomorrow,” says Bill Milroy, CTO and Chairman at ThinKom.
Kontron and ThinKom will be exhibiting at AIX in Hamburg, Germany from June 6 – 8, 2023. Visit Kontron at booth 2E24 and ThinKom at booth 4E41 to learn more about their open architecture platforms.
Kontron is a global leader in IoT/Embedded Computing Technology (ECT) and offers individual solutions in the areas of Internet of Things (IoT) and Industry 4.0 through a combined portfolio of hardware, software and services. With its standard and customized products based on highly reliable state-of-the-art technologies, Kontron provides secure and innovative applications for a wide variety of industries. As a result, customers benefit from accelerated time-to-market, lower total cost of ownership, extended product lifecycles and the best fully integrated applications.

InnoPhase IoT, Inc., a fabless semiconductor company specializing in ultra-low power Wi-Fi IoT solutions, announced multiple end-to-end (E2E) sensor to cloud customer solutions based on its Talaria TWO Wi-Fi/BLE SoC and modules. The solutions accelerate the transition to battery powered cloud connected IoT market applications. By delivering an approximately 10+ year battery-operated sensor solution featuring a lower power consumption Wi-Fi module and optimized cloud connectivity reference software, InnoPhase IoT is fueling rapid growth of IoT designs.
Multi-protocol Wi-Fi/BLE support from Talaria TWO enables both direct-to-cloud low-power Wi-Fi sensor connectivity without the need for an intermediate gateway and a cloud connectivity gateway solution for legacy BLE-based IoT sensor applications. E2E capabilities allow Wi-Fi and BLE IoT devices to be easily managed and monitored via cloud software.
The battery-operated sensor solution delivers rapid time to market, cloud connectivity, low power, and low total cost of ownership for broad-based applications such as smart home and factory automation, commercial building management, access and air quality monitoring, smart retail, industrial IoT, smart healthcare and pet and people tracking, and more.
“Our end customer was looking for seven plus years of battery life for a temperature probe and a cloud connectivity gateway solution for a remote temperature monitoring IoT application. We selected InnoPhase IoT’s ultra-low power Talaria TWO Wi-Fi solution and its market-ready cloud connectivity reference software to meet our design targets and time to market needs,” said Dave Pulvermacher, COO at Matrix Product Development, a developer of IoT devices.
According to Adam Zilberbaum, CEO at Sunsa Homes, a manufacturer of the Sunsa Wand that delivers retrofit window blind automation, “We’ve incorporated the InnoPhase IoT Wi-Fi sensor solution into our battery-powered Sunsa Wand to allow customers to control their window blinds from anywhere using iPhone and Android apps. In addition, light and temperature sensors can trigger the opening and closing of blinds based on temperature and comfort preferences. It was important that we connect directly to Wi-Fi without using a hub.”
Prabhakar Annavi, CEO at IoT solutions and product development provider Eoxys said, “We’ve incorporated the InnoPhase IoT’s Talaria TWO Wi-Fi/Bluetooth module in our BLE Beacon Gateway connectivity solution. Our gateway interfaces with Bluetooth enable IoT devices on one end while providing Wi-Fi connectivity to the cloud. The InnoPhase IoT solution was easy to productize and is working out well for us and our end customers.”
According to Steve Chan, GM at Embux Technology, “We are seeing a transition to direct-to-cloud Wi-Fi connectivity for sensor applications in the industrial IoT, smart home and building markets. InnoPhase IoT’s Talaria TWO Wi-Fi module helps us meet the needs for long battery life, cloud connected sensors working in conjunction with our industrial access points and gateways.”
The InnoPhase IoT sensor-to-cloud solution is currently available. A reference design is ready for evaluation and OEM solutions are available for a fast time to market and high-volume production.
InnoPhase IoT will demonstrate its technology at the IoT Tech Expo in Santa Clara, California May 17-18, in booth 260 and at Sensors Converge in Santa Clara, California, June 20-22.
