Advantech, ARM, Bosch Sensortec, Sensirion, and Texas Instruments are to co-operate on a physically interchangeable standard for wireless IoT sensor nodes and have started an industry body. Based on the 22x30mm M.2 (also known as NGFF – next-generation form-factor) physical shape, developed for computer expansion boards, it is to be know as M2.COM and will combine wireless technology, a microcontroller and networking capability. The industry body will share the M2.COM name.
