MINNETONKA, Minn. -- February 27, 2013

Digi International (NASDAQ: DGII) today announced it will offer Android
support for the ConnectCard™ for i.MX28 module, a compact wireless
system-on-module for developing connected devices based on Freescale™
Semiconductor technology. Embedded application development kits will include
drivers and unique Digi software extensions allowing customers to get to
market fast using Android. Through the iDigi® Device Cloud™, developers will
also have immediate access to a Web applications development platform and
world-class device management functionality.

“Customers now have access to the power of Android without investing hundreds
of thousands of dollars in development time and customization,” said Larry
Kraft, senior vice president of marketing, Digi International. “The
cutting-edge combination of Android and the iDigi Device Cloud allows device
manufacturers to reduce time to market of connected devices. The ConnectCard
for i.MX28 also builds on our collaboration with Freescale to offer customers
the benefits of cloud connectivity right out of the box.”

“In addition to our Kinetis® and Coldfire® microcontroller platforms which
include the iDigi Connector for immediate access to the iDigi Device Cloud,
customers can now build cloud connected devices easily using our i.MX28
platform,” said Ken Obuszewski, Freescale’s director of i.MX marketing. “Cloud
connectivity allows customers to differentiate their products and compete in
today’s connected world. The iDigi Device Cloud is a key enabler.”

The compact ConnectCard for i.MX28 is an ideal solution for developing
smaller, portable devices in medical, building automation and similar
applications. It features Wi-Fi and Bluetooth networking options, and at 51 x
35 x 3 mm in size, is small enough for the most compact designs. The module
offers easy design integration, low-power operation and unique interface
flexibility. It features an integrated 32-bit ARM core running at up to 454
MHz, on-chip power management, Bluetooth 4.0, and dual Ethernet and 802.11
a/b/g/n networking options.

Digi JumpStart Kits for Digi Embedded Linux provide a complete turnkey
embedded development solution and are available at Embedded World in Munich in
Hall 1, booth 432, for a special show price of €99 (normally $299 MSRP). Digi
JumpStart Kits for Digi Embedded Android will be available in June.
