element14 launches first all-in-one mangOH™ Green Open Hardware Platform

First in the market all-in-one Hardware, Software and Cloud-based solution for Industrial IoT applications from element14 and Sierra Wireless

MangOH Green Open Open Hardware Platform for Industrial IoT applications

element14 and Sierra Wireless today announce the launch of the mangOH™ Green Open Hardware IoT Platform and mangOH kit.

The mangOH™ Green Open Hardware IoT Platform allows developers to test and prototype ideas quickly and take IoT solutions to market within weeks. The industry’s first complete sensor-to-cloud platform, it provides an all-in-one hardware, software and cloud-based solution for industrial IoT applications. Ideal for data logging in a remote location, the mangOH™ Green Open Hardware IoT Platform is perfectly suited for remote monitoring systems, as well as multiple sensor, IoT, and cloud-based applications.

At the heart of the board are two industrial-grade CF3 connectors to enable the use of either an AirPrime HL Series module or an AirPrime WP Series applications processor module from Sierra Wireless. The AirPrime WP Series cellular modem provides the device-to-cloud architecture enabling IoT developers to build a Linux-based product on a single module.

Key features of its hardware, software and cloud services include:


  • Integrated ARM-based application processor with cellular modem and GPS
  • Arduino and IoT Connector to add wireless, wired, and sensor technologies
  • Battery enabled for low-power applications


  • Legato open source Linux platform with robust connectivity APIs for accessing cloud and mobile network services

Cloud Services 

The mangOH™ Green IoT Platform is also compatible with other open source initiatives to allow for easy and fast prototyping; these include NXP thread module, Linear Technology Dust Networks and Texas Instruments ZigBee, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth module.


We are delighted to work with Sierra Wireless to launch these first-to-market mangOH™ Green solutions. It is an innovative platform that will appeal to developers working on next-generation IoT designs.
David Shen, Chief Technology Officer at Premier Farnell
The goal of the mangOH™ Green design is to remove the hardware complexity associated with prototyping IoT connected devices. We are excited that element14 has adopted the open source design and is manufacturing and selling the industrial-grade boards globally
Andrew Suttle, VP, Global Distribution, OEM Solutions at Sierra Wireless
