Dual-radio dev kit supports Sigfox, BLE
STMicroelectronics' STEVAL-FKI001V1 development kit helps build IoT products based on Sigfox, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), and sub-1-GHz technologies. It allows designers to move quickly from early concept to prototyping, field trials, and volume production of such devices as smart sensors, finders, and trackers.
The kit includes Jorjin’s fully programmable WS2118 Sigfox/BLE module, which embeds ST’s BlueNRG-1 Bluetooth SoC and S2-LP sub-1-GHz transceiver. This dual-radio architecture enables simultaneous operations on a variety of radio-frequency bands and protocols, like BLE or proprietary 2.4 GHz, sub-1-GHz, and Sigfox.
