Evaluation kit accelerates IoT designs
The WICED CYW43907 evaluation kit from Cypress Semiconductor is now being shipped by Mouser Electronics. Enabling device evaluation through production, the evaluation kit offers engineers a viable solution that will greatly reduce time to market, risk and cost when producing production-ready Internet of Things (IoT) designs.
The kit is based on the Cypress CYW43907 system-on-chip (SoC).
The CYW43907 wireless SoC combines dual-band 802.11n (2.4GHz and 5GHz) Wi-Fi with a 32-bit Arm Cortex-R4 application microcontroller subsystem.
It features 2MBytes of SRAM, along with a several standardized interfaces, including Ethernet (RMII/MII), UART, SPI/QSPI, and I2C.
The evaluation board has an operating voltage of 3.3V and features an RJ-45 Ethernet connector, onboard PCB antenna, external antenna connector, an onboard programmer and debugger, as well as a microSD card slot.
The board also offers Arduino Uno-compatible headers, allowing designers to prototype additional hardware capabilities through off-the-shelf Arduino shields for sensors and other peripherals.
It is supported by Wireless Internet Connectivity for Embedded Devices (WICED) Studio, a software development kit (SDK) targeting IoT that includes libraries and code examples for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and combination connectivity in a single integrated development environment (IDE). The target wireless applications for the development platform include home automation, medical, health and fitness, audio, and industrial IoT.
