RF modules ease implementation of radio technologies in embedded systems
Adeunis RF announced the availability of its Wireless Starter Kits, allowing immediate implementation of wireless capabilities on Bluetooth, ISM bands, Narrowband and Wireless M‐Bus transceivers (a world exclusive). The kits are based on the Raisonance brand Open4 development platforms and fully compatible with EvoPrimer platform resold by STMicroelectronics. These platforms are portable, battery‐operated development solutions that facilitate creation and fine‐tuning of embedded software on the latest generation of STM32 ARM Cortex‐M based microcontrollers. The Adeunis RF Starter Kits are designed to help users achieve their objectives as quickly as possible when integrating wireless communication in their applications. The new generation starter kits consist of an Adeunis RF extension board embedding an RF module and a Raisonance Open4 platform. This package constitutes a compact and nomadic tool that is suitable for exploring RF capabilities and fine tuning them in virtually any environment. The color touch‐sensitive screen allows friendly access to the module parameters and to numerous test modes implemented by Adeunis RF, so that users with little RF experience can rapidly start exploring wireless technologies.
The Adeunis RF Starter Kits meet three objectives:
Instantly evaluate the Adeunis RF wireless products
Perform RF measurements
Follow the user, from the development phases to the optimization of the on‐site implementation
Portability of the Open4 platform gives users the freedom to move around the environment where an application will be implemented, testing RF parameters and performance. Application designers can then develop their own software using the Raisonance tool set; C/C++ compiler, RIDE development environment and debugging/programming hardware. In addition to the wireless capabilities of the Adeunis RF modules, user applications can implement features such as a color touch screen, voice‐quality audio, SDcard, USB, MEMS accelerometer and many standard microcontroller peripherals. Thanks to interchangeable target boards and CircleOS middleware that facilitates software portability, designers can also try a range of processors including STM32F4 high‐performance Cortex‐M4 CPUs and STM32L “Low power consumption” microcontrollers.
