This pages shows Electronic Shelf Label (ESL) systems built on top of Telink's chipsets. The general architecture is demonstrated in the following diagram. A complete ELS system normally includes the following building blocks:
Unified management of all device information Control gateway and tag nodes networking Update tag information to the specified node
Subnet management, caching and distributing tag information Receive status updates from tags Monitor the operating status of the network Support OTA
Accept and refresh the information from the gateway Can be easily transferred from one gateway to other gateways
Telink works with our design partners to provide complete solutions to end customers. In this process, Telink mainly focus on the part between the Gateway and the ESL nodes, where ESL nodes runs on Telink ultra-low-power RF SoC and the Gateway communicates with these nodes using Telink high performance RF SoC as well. The backend systems such as Gateway management systems, cloud server, cloud management systems and interfaces are provide by the ESL total solution design houses.
The development kit provided by Telink demonstrates a complete ESL node reference design and the connection between the Gateway and the ESL nodes. The kit includes:
