    The EVK‑N3 is the evaluation kit for the u‑blox SARA‑N3 series cellular modules, supporting LTE Cat NB2 (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‑N3, 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‑G2, EVK‑U2, EVK‑N2, EVK‑N3, 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.
