The DC9021A SmartMesh IP™ RF Certified Starter Kit provides all the tools for evaluating SmartMesh® network performance for your application needs, including high reliability, ultralow power, scalability and ease of installation. This accelerates device integration and application software development.
The DC9021A Starter Kit includes five motes or wireless nodes (DC9018A-B) to enable you to quickly deploy a multi-hop mesh network in the RF environment for your specific application. The command line interface allows you to quickly see the list of mesh nodes in the network, as well as key performance statistics such as data reliability and latency.
The DC9018A-B Evaluation/Development Mote Modules feature easy-to-probe signal pins. In addition, the starter kit provides access to both manager and mote software application programming interfaces (APIs) over USB to enable application software development.
The DC2274A-A USB Network Manager comes factory-configured as an embedded network manager, where both the wireless-to-wired access point function and the network management algorithms run on board. Optionally, users may configure the DC2274 as a SmartMesh IP Access Point Mote for operation with VManager software. (Click here to learn more about network managers.)
The DC9021A Starter Kit operates in the 2.4000GHz to 2.4835GHz international license-free frequency band and includes RF intentional radiator certifications for Japan, as well as the United States, Canada, Europe, India, South Korea, Taiwan, Australia and New Zealand. Starter kits and demo boards are for evaluation purposes only. It remains the user’s responsibility to verify proper and reliable operation in the actual end application.
