RN1723 Evaluation Kit (RN-1723-EK)

The RN-1723-EK is an 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi evaluation kit for the RN1723 module that can be used to quickly add Wi-Fi connectivity to embedded applications. It has the flexibility to connect directly to a PC via a standard USB interface or to embedded processors through the TTL/UART interface. The board includes 2 convenient push buttons for controlling both SoftAP and WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) mode without software configuration. The status LEDs and jumpers enable rapid prototyping and integration into existing systems.

More Detail

The RN-1723-EK can be powered by both a USB cable (included in the kit) or batteries. The board contains a battery boost circuit which makes it possible to power the board using two AAA batteries (the input voltage can go down to 2.0 V DC when using the battery boost circuit). The battery boost circuit makes the RN-1723-EK perfect for battery powered applications such as sensors, data acquisition systems, controllers, etc.
