The EVK-NINA-B3 evaluation kit serves as a complete starter kit that allows for easy prototyping using either u-connect software or an open CPU device where the application is developed using the chipset supplier's SDK. The EVK‑NINA‑B3 can be used as a reference design for the NINA‑B3 series Bluetooth low energy modules thus enabling faster hardware development and shorter time to market. The evaluation board is equipped with Arduino sockets that enables use of numerous shields for quick prototyping of different use cases.
The EVK‑NINA‑B3 evaluation kit includes an evaluation board, an external antenna for Bluetooth (EVK-NINA-B301 and EVK-NINA-B311 only) as well as an NFC antenna.
EVK-NINA-B311, EVK-NINA-B312, and EVK-NINA-B316 support both variants of the u-connect software: u-connectXpress (pre-flashed at delivery) and u-connectScript.
