The REB233SMAD-EK demonstrates the unique performance and rich feature set of the 2.4GHz RF transceiver AT86RF233 combined with the leading edge ATxmega256A3 microcontroller. The REB233SMAD-EK contains two sets of Radio Extender Board(REB), Controller Base Board (REB-CBB) and USB cable to enable PC connectivity.
The REB is assembled with an AT86RF233 and two SMA antennas, demonstrating the unrivaled hardware based Antenna Diversity feature to improve radio link robustness in adverse RF environments. The REB connected to the REB-CBB forms a fully functional, battery powered wireless node.
The kit is supported by Atmel BitCloud stack - a ZigBee PRO certified platform - and Atmel BitCloud Profile Suite - a certified testing and development solution for public application profiles like ZigBee Smart Energy and Home Automation. The kit is thus an ideal platform for design and prototyping of ZigBee-compliant wireless applications. The REB-CBB boards are also equipped with serial DataFlash, which enables seamless evaluation of over-the-air upgrade functionality provided by BitCloud.
