    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.

    u‑blox cellular adapter boards are designed to be used with any u‑blox EVK-C2, EVK-D2, EVK-G2, EVK-U2, EVK-N2, EVK-L1, or EVK-L2 cellular evaluation kit. Adapter boards are interchangeable, and allow customers to evaluate other u‑blox cellular technologies (GSM, CDMA, UMTS/HSPA, or LTE) with only one full evaluation kit and the appropriate adapter board(s). Evaluation kits include m-center and u-center: u‑blox’s interactive evaluation tools for configuration, testing, visualization and data analysis of cellular and GNSS receivers. These powerful and easy-to-use tools provide useful assistance during all phases of a system integration project.
