From iDigi’s blog:
We are always thinking about how to make iDigi more accessible. We are excited to announce a price reduction for iDigi Web Services, our device management and application development solution. We have lowered the monthly minimum fee for iDigi Web Services, from $50 to $1.99.
This price reduction will enable anyone to sign up for iDigi and experience the full capability of the cloud and test developer applications.
This reduction in price reflects our commitment to our customers and the continued growth of the iDigi Device Cloud. By making iDigi more accessible to our customers across all verticals and organization types, we’re able to drive the growth of the iDigi Community.
Current iDigi customers will notice the reduced price for the May billing period.
The iDigi Platform offers a number of web services that allow users and their applications to interact with iDigi and their devices.
So, what are you waiting for? Sign up today!

We have exciting news, that we announced at the Embedded World Exhibition, in Nuremberg, Germany. Embedded World hosts engineers who want to share their knowledge, present new solutions and help others reach success. That’s why we decided to announce our collaboration with Freescale there today.
Freescale and Digi® have come together to offer the first cloud connected microcontrollers. The iDigi Device Cloud™ will be integrated into the Kinetis and ColdFire microcontroller platforms. Using the iDigi Connector, an open interface for any type of device, Kinetis and ColdFire users can access the web and mobile applications development platform and device management functionality.
The Kinetis and ColdFire platforms will come out-of-the box with cloud connectivity, making the microcontrollers more efficient. The cloud will help streamline product rollouts, upgrade and service devices with ease and provide access to manage devices remotely.
If you’re attending Embedded World, Digi will demonstrate the integration of the iDigi Device Cloud on a Kinetis K53 Tower System in Hall 1 booth 1-432. The setup shows a cloud-enabled MQX RTOS application with integrated remote device management capabilities (firmware upgrade, system reboot, system information/performance, reliability metrics and alerts) as well as cloud-based information exchange of on-board peripheral status (accelerometer, potentiometer, touch sensors, ADC, PWM, LEDs.).
Embedded World Conference is determined to offer a environment to set trends and present solutions. The conference provides the perfect platform to share our latest collaborative solution that will enhance the iDigi and Freescale experience for engineers and innovators.
And, if you’re not in attendance, keep an eye on our Facebook Page and Twitter account for information from Embedded World. We’ll be updating you on the innovative ideas that come from the community of engineers who are mapping the future.
From Digi’s blog:
The Iridium satellite network now supports the iDigi Device Cloud. This means that Digi devices with an Iridium data transceiver inside can now send and receive data via iDigi over the Iridium network.
The Iridium network is the world’s furthest-reaching network, so this capability extends connectivity to the remote corners of the globe and is faster and easier than ever before.
“The big picture is that we’ve made it ridiculously easy to create backcountry realtime environmental stations, operate autonomous terrestrial or oceanic vehicles or support advanced devices in the developing world,” said Rob Faludi, collaborative strategy leader for Digi R&D. “Developers can create high-tech interactions that persist though natural disasters because no local infrastructure at all is required, and deploy them in any spot on the planet. We say any app, anything, anywhere and we mean anywhere!”
Iridium and Digi create a valuable partnership– with Iridium operating the world’s furthest-reaching network and enabling connections in remote places and Digi, who continually pushes the bounds of technology in terms of what is possible through networks.
