Development Kit

Evaluate and prototype quickly with the BC118 module using this development kit.

Module evaluation: BC118-DISKIT comes with a BC118 module flashed with Melody Smart. The BC118-DISKIT can connect to a PC using the onboard to Serial FTDI converter. The user can then control the BC118 module sending UART commands using a standard Hyperterminal.

Module prototyping: BC118-DISKIT comes with a breakout header where GPIOs, UART, AIOs and I2C interfaces are exposed. Furthermore BC118-DISKIT comes with 2 controls push buttons, control LEDs and can be powered with standard AA batteries for easier prototyping.
