This page will assist you in learning about your OM2385-SF002 Evaluation Board.
The NXP analog product development boards provide an easy-to-use platform for evaluating NXP products. The boards support a range of analog, mixed-signal and power solutions. They incorporate monolithic integrated circuits and system-in-package devices that use proven high-volume technology. NXP products offer longer battery life, a smaller form factor, reduced component counts, lower cost and improved performance in powering state-of-the-art systems.
This page will guide you through the process of setting up and using the OM2385/SF002 development kit.
The OM2385/SF002 development kit contents include:
This evaluation board requires a Windows PC workstation. Meeting these minimum specifications should produce great results when working with this kit.
Refer to UM11626, OM2385/SF002EU development kit and UM11635, OM2385/ SF002US development kit for additional details on the featured components and board configuration.
The OM2385/SF002 development kit provides an evaluation platform for designing SIGFOX network applications that use NXP's OL2385 single-chip RF transceiver.
The kit consists of three boards: the OL2385 Shield Board, the OL2385 Innocomm Module and a FRDM-K32L2B3 board. The OL2385 Innocomm Module is permanently affixed to the surface of the OL2385 Shield Board. The Innocomm Module contains an embedded OL2385 transceiver and serves as a wireless modem. When connected to an antenna (included in the kit), it provides all the functionality required to communicate with the SIGFOX network. The OL2385 Shield Board contains connectors for external communication. The Shield Board is mounted by means of four Arduino™ connectors to the FRDM-K32L2B3. The FRDM-K32L2B3 acts as the communication link between the development kit and a PC. It comes preloaded with microcode that manages the interface between the PC and the OL2385 Innocomm Module.
