SPIRIT1 - Low Data Rate Transceiver - 868 MHz - USB dongle
  • active Active

The STEVAL-IDS001V4 demonstration board is based on the SPIRIT1, which is a sub-GHz low power, low data-rate transceiver suitable for ISM bands and Wireless M-BUS. The board is equipped with an STM32L low power microcontroller to control the SPIRIT1. The board also features a USB connector for PC GUI interaction and firmware update. An optional JTAG connector (not mounted) allows the development of specific firmware on the microcontroller.
