Cortex-M3 Radio Sticks for 868/915 MHz Frequency Now Available

The product family of the cortex-M3 radio sticks is now complete.
Up to now the radio stick versions with/without Flash, JTAG connector or case are available also for the sub-GHz frequency. With 256 kByte flash, 64 kByte RAM and the sub GHz band transceiver AT86RF212 the new Cortex-M3 microcontroller stands out with an enhanced, developer friendly handling and improved performance.

Optionally equipped with a 2GB memory, the flash enumerates as removable device and is large enough to store all drivers, documentation, application data or even the complete development environmentoffering real plug-and-play or plug-and-develop to customers.

The Board version without JTAG connector but with a housing instead, is delivered without pre-installed firmware so your own firmware can be installed once via USB using the SAM-BA tool from Atmel.

The Board version with JTAG/Trace connector enables the programming, debugging and testing right in the circuit and can be used as Wireless UART.

For the sub-GHz frequency the existing deRFusb line with the ARM7 microcontroller is now consequently evolved.
