Introducing the Arduino MKR WAN 1300 and MKR GSM 1400!

By News Aggregator

By Arduino Team

First unveiled over the weekend at World Maker Faire New York, Arduino has introduced a pair of new IoT boards with embedded LoRa and GSM capabilities.

The Arduino MKR WAN 1300 and MKR GSM 1400 are designed to offer a practical and cost-effective solution for developers, makers and enterprises, enabling them to quickly add connectivity to their projects and ease the development of battery-powered IoT edge applications.

Both of the highly compact boards measure just 67.64 x 25mm, together with low power consumption, making them an ideal choice for emerging battery-powered IoT edge devices in the MKR form factor for applications such as environmental monitoring, tracking, agriculture, energy monitoring and home automation.

Offering 32-bit computational power similar to the Arduino MKR ZERO board, the MKR WAN 1300 is based around the Murata LoRa low-power connectivity module and the Microchip SAM D21 microcontroller, which integrates an ARM Cortex-M0+ processor, 256KB Flash memory and 32KB SRAM. The board’s design includes the ability to be powered by either two 1.5V AA or AAA batteries or an external 5V input via the USB interface – with automatic switching between the two power sources.

In addition, the MKR WAN 1300 offers the usual rich set of I/O interfaces expected with an Arduino board, and ease of use via the Arduino IDE software environment for code development and programming. Other features include an operating voltage of 3.3V; eight digital I/Os; 12 PWM outputs; and UART, SPI and I2C interfaces.

Like the MKR WAN 1300, the Arduino MKR GSM 1400 is based on the SAM D21, but integrates a u-blox module for global 3G communications. The board features automatic power switching, however, it uses either a 3.7V LiPo battery or an external Vin power source delivering 5V to 12V. While the USB port can also be used to supply 5V to the board, the MKR GSM 1400 is able to run with or without the battery connected.

The MKR GSM 1400 provides a rich set of I/O interfaces including: eight digital I/Os; 12 PWM outputs; UART, SPI and I2C interfaces; analog I/O including seven inputs and one output; and eight external interrupt pins.

Both boards are now available for pre-order on the Arduino Store.

NBA, Nike team up for smart fan jerseys that know you—and where you go

By David Kravets

Enlarge (credit: Nike)

First came the smart phone and then eventually the Internet of Things took off, giving us smart thermostats and smart refrigerators. Now, welcome to the world of the smart jersey. That’s right, for $110 or $200, you can buy an NBA replica jersey of your favorite player from Nike that connects to your mobile phone.

The tag on the jersey, when viewed with your Android or Apple mobile phone using the NikeConnect app, will bombard you with a wealth of NBA marketing as well as all kinds of highlights, stats, and team and player information. It also provides marketers with the Holly Grail of advertising opportunities. Once the jersey is activated, Nike knows who bought the jersey, where that buyer lives, and where and when the jersey was scanned.

Video gamers are also enticed to buy these new jerseys. Fans get a so-called “boost” code to use on the NBA2K18 video game by Take-Two Interactive. The code gives an in-game boost to the player whose jersey was purchased, putting him into beast mode.

How to Check If You’re Exposed to Those Scary BlueBorne Bluetooth Flaws

By David Meyer

The security research firm Armis Labs had identified massive vulnerabilities in the Bluetooth wireless technology that can allow attackers to take over people’s devices, whether they be smartphones, PCs or even Internet of Things devices such as smart TVs and watches.

The “BlueBorne” flaws would allow a virus to leap from device to device, regardless of the operating system being used.

They can even allow attackers to access so-called “air-gapped” computer networks that aren’t connected to the Internet, Armis warned Tuesday. Bluetooth-equipped devices do not need to be in discoverable mode, or paired with the attacker’s device, in order to be vulnerable.

“These silent attacks are invisible to traditional security controls and procedures. Companies don’t monitor these types of device-to-device connections in their environment, so they can’t see these attacks or stop them,” Armis CEO Yevgeny Dibrov said in a statement. “The research illustrates the types of threats facing us in this new connected age.”

So, are your Bluetooth-equipped devices vulnerable? Armis told many of the affected tech companies about the flaws well before informing the public–an approach known in the industry as responsible disclosure–so they’ve had a chance to push out patches.

Not everyone has, though.

According to Armis, Google


googl



put out an Android security update last month and Microsoft


msft



planned a Windows update for Tuesday. The team working on security for the open-source Linux operating system was also targeting an update for Tuesday.

Apple


aapl



fans will be delighted to hear that the current versions of its software are not vulnerable. That means anything more recent than iOS 9.3.5 or, for Apple TV users, version 7.2.2 of the software for that device. iOS 10 is definitely OK, Armis said.

Samsung


ssnlf



fans will be less pleased to read this from Armis: “Contact on three separate occasions in April, May, and June. No response was received back from any outreach.”

Those using non-Google-branded Android devices will just have to hope that the manufacturers issue security updates to keep them safe. Google automatically updates its own devices, such as the Pixel, but when it comes to the wider Android ecosystem, all it can do is make updates available to manufacturers and hope they relay them to their customers’ phones and tablets.

Armis has released an Android app to help people check if they are vulnerable.

In short, install the latest updates for everything, and unless you’re sure that your devices have been updated with a fix, it might be a good idea to turn off Bluetooth for now.
