Designed for use with our AEK MCU discovery boards, Functional boards implement a specific function including motor control, LED lighting, power management, audio, connectivity and communication such as USB.
Based on the AutoDevKit™ initiative, a set of any combination of functional boards including duplicates, can be connected simultaneously with a single MCU discovery board thus generating a quick system solution prototype assembly.
For each functional board, a dedicated set of Application Program Interfaces (APIs) control the available features and facilitate the communication with the MCU.
Third-party functional boards can be added in the application building process to enrich the system solution including, for example, laser range scanning sensors (e.g. LIDAR) or Hall effect sensors.
The updated list of available functional boards can be found in Release Note RN0118: AutoDevKit library.
