nRFgo Starter Kit

Common development platform for Nordic Semiconductor's wireless ICs
Active
Overview

Description

The nRFgo Starter Kit is the core of the nRFgo evaluation and development platform for Nordic's ultra low power (ULP) wireless ICs. Used in conjunction with any nRFgo compatible development kit, the Starter Kit enables engineers to perform evaluation, hardware prototyping, and embedded software development.

The kit includes two nRFgo motherboards, a display add-on module, cables, and a CD with software and documentation. Each motherboard provides an ideal prototyping platform by featuring an nRFgo radio module socket, an add-on module socket, standard interface connectors (USB, RS232, ISP and hardware debug), plus an array of I/O ports and buttons, an on-board I/O controller, and multiple power supply options (USB, battery, or external supply).
