May 4, 2017 – Mouser Electronics, Inc., the authorized global distributor with the newest semiconductors and electronic components, is now stocking the SmartBond DA14585 Development Kit Pro from Dialog Semiconductor. The kit is based on the SmartBond DA14585 system-on-chip (SoC), the smallest, lowest-power SoC that supports the new Bluetooth 5 specification. The versatile device is ideal for adding Bluetooth low energy Mesh to products like remote controls, proximity tags, Internet of Things (IoT) beacons, connected medical devices, and smart home nodes.
The Dialog SmartBond DA14585 Development Kit Pro, available from Mouser Electronics, enables designers to start working with the SmartBond DA14585 and DA14586 SoCs. The kit includes a motherboard, DA14585 daughterboard, USB cable, and coin-cell battery. The motherboard provides access to all of the SoC’s general-purpose inputs and outputs (GPIOs), and the onboard SEGGER chip provides the complete debugging capability. With the board’s dedicated onboard circuitry and Dialog’s complete software environment, SmartSnippets, engineers can profile and fine tune the power consumption of their applications to get the most out of the SoC.
The included DA14585 daughterboard integrates the DA14585 SoC, a PCB antenna, and a connector for an SMA antenna. The motherboard also works with the DA14586 daughterboard, coming soon to Mouser Electronics. In addition to Bluetooth 5 support, the DA14586 SoC has 2 MBytes of flash memory and 96 kBytes of RAM for user applications.
The SmartBond DA14585 and DA14586 SoCs offer designers all the benefits of the DA14580/DA14581 SoCs, but with even greater flexibility to create more advanced applications from the smallest footprints and power budgets. Other enhancements include an advanced power management setup with both buck and boost converters, which enable support of most primary cell battery types. The SoCs also include an integrated microphone interface, which allows designers to add intuitive intelligent voice control to any cloud-connected product that has a microphone and speaker.
