The EVK‑N2 is the evaluation kit for the u‑blox SARA‑N2 series cellular modules, supporting LTE Cat NB1 (NB‑IoT) radio access technology. The kits are user‑friendly and have both USB and RS232 interfaces for development, testing and tracing. Using the EVK‑N2, the designer can fully verify and test the major benefits of the NB‑IoT technology, including the improved device sensitivity and low power consumption in deep sleep mode, aiming to guarantee 10+ years of battery lifetime.
The kits are to be used with a Windows PC via USB interface, and require an activated SIM card (not included). USB drivers can be downloaded from u‑blox website.
The kits come with a built‑in u‑blox GNSS receiver module, giving designers the flexibility also to test u‑blox GNSS technology.
