JEDI One 2.1 for Windows, Linux, Mac, Raspberry Pi® and BeagleBoard® BeagleBone Platforms Allows IoT System Integrators, Development Engineers and Makers to Add Edge-Based IoT Data Collection, Visualization, Monitoring, and On-Prem Storage to Any IoT Project in Hours vs Months; Machinechat JEDI One Software Included in Digi-Key IoT QuickStart Kit

April 5, 2021 – San Jose, CA – Machinechat, an emerging supplier of IoT solutions that dramatically reduce the cost and time spent developing and deploying IoT projects, today announced the release of JEDI One version 2.1. The newest version of the industry’s most affordable all-in-one IoT software solution includes expanded capabilities that allow system integrators, development engineers and makers to address more IoT use cases with little to no coding. New features include a fully integrated MQTT broker, expanded rule triggers and actions, and more.    


“Since launching JEDI One over a year ago, we have heard from an ever-expanding community of JEDI One users – from development engineers to system integrators to makers – who have been thrilled to have an easy-to-use software solution that allows them to rapidly build professional, field-ready IoT projects in hours instead of months,” said Sanjeev Datla, CEO of Machinechat. “With the release of 2.1 we are raising the bar once again – with features that make JEDI One even easier to use across more IoT use cases. More importantly, we have done all of this while maintaining the small application footprint and the same affordable single-license pricing.”


Delivered as a single binary that is less than 20 megabytes in size with no external library dependencies or runtime environments, JEDI One is an efficient solution for on-premise IoT data collection, visualization, and monitoring without the need for always-on Internet connections, cloud-based IoT platforms and monthly cloud fees.
