Product Details

The AD-MAX32SXWISE-SL development kit is a tool intended for designing solutions based on low-power, long range proprietary radio communication technique. This platform features the SX1261, an RF transceiver based on spread spectrum modulation techniques derived from chirp spread spectrum (CSS) technology, and supports a frequency range from 800 MHz to 960 MHz. This solution is also based on the MAX32670 ultralow power microcontroller based on Arm Cortex-M4 processor.

The platform comes in an Arduino Uno form factor, with two PMOD connectors, and an ESP32 Dev Kit connector for easy-to-connect sensors and signal conditioning add-on modules. Complete with working software and hardware, as well as software examples, this kit makes it easier for customers to prototype and create connected systems and solutions for IoT applications. The base platform is accompanied with various Analog Devices add-on hardware but is also compatible with 3rd party hardware. A free programming and debugging tool called MaximSDK is also provided by Analog Devices.

The AD-MAX32SXWISE-SL development kit is complete with 1 base board, 3 sensor nodes, gateway setup essentials, and other accessories. However, customers also have the option to avail of the components individually as intended for their application development.
