nRF51422 Development Kit

nRFgo Development Kit for nRF51422
Not recommended
Overview

Description

Not recommended for new designs, replaced by nRF51 DK and nRF51 Dongle

When used in conjunction with the nRFgo Starter Kit, the nRF51422 Development Kit enables engineers to do full evaluation, prototyping and full application development for ANT™ applications. The platform provides a solid development environment for RF application development. This platform together with the nRF514 SDK enables extensive firmware development with the nRF51422 System-on-Chip (SoC).

The nRF51422 Development Kit includes nRF51422 modules that integrate all required external circuitry, including antenna match, 16MHz crystal, and 32kHz crystal. When plugged into the nRFgo Motherboard, the device I/O pins are easily accessible via the I/O port headers on the Motherboard. The kit also includes a compact nRF24AP2 USB dongle.
