By supporting concurrent communication over Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and sub-1 GHz wireless, the STMicroelectronics STEVAL-FKI001V1 dual-radio development kit gives the flexibility to envision, build and connect IoT devices like smart sensors, finders and trackers which can be configured, updated, remotely monitored and tracked using various network topologies, protocols and services.
Built to enable smart home or smart building scenarios, as well as asset tracking, energy management, smart farming and industrial monitoring and control use cases, the kit brings together ST’s BlueNRG-1 Bluetooth system-on-chip and S2-LP sub-1 GHz transceiver. The powerful dual-radio architecture enables simultaneous operations on a variety of radio-frequency bands and protocols such as Bluetooth LE or proprietary 2,4 GHz, sub-1 GHz and Sigfox.
The BlueNRG-1 Bluetooth 5.0 certified solution ensures convenient setup, configuration or modification of device settings during installation or maintenance, and permits monitoring of networked node sensors through an app running on any Android or iOS device.
The sub-1 GHz S2-LP transceiver allows local networking as well as LPWAN installations including global Sigfox connectivity, which allows capabilities such as real-time notification of events. Moreover, users can leverage out-of-the-box Sigfox-ready networking to track and remotely localise devices or assets.
The kit can readily be expanded through its Arduino Uno V3 connectors with the comprehensive ST X-NUCLEO offering, including expansion boards with MEMS sensors, motor control, GNSS receivers or industrial input/output and power drivers.
