Communication & Wireless Development Tools
Adding radio communication to your design does not necessarily mean you need to learn all about transmitters, receivers, signal amplifiers and gain calculations, you can use a development kit to accelerate your design speed. We offer a wide range of wireless evaluation boards using a variety of Radio Frequency (RF) protocols including:
- GSM / GPRS / LTE (Cellular)
- GPS / GNSS
- RFID / MIFARE / NFC
These development boards and kits generally include standard connectors, interfaces and software so can be embedded and tested with minimal design time.
Once your design is finalised, many of the products within this family are also available in component or module form which can be used within a production environment.
Development kits, development boards and starter kits are available from a wide range of manufacturers including; Raspberry Pi, Adafruit, Arduino, Microchip Technology, MikroElektronika, Picom, ROHM, STMicroelectronics and many more.
The development kits generally include an antenna if it's not integrated onto the circuit board. RS offers a range of antennas to suit your specific needs.
