DVK-BASE-2-GEVK - Development and Evaluation Kit for AXSEM RF Transceivers

The DVK-BASE-2-GEVK is a development kit for engineers evaluating and developing applications using ON Semiconductor's family of high performance RF devices and microcontrollers.

Overview
The DVK-BASE-2-GEVK features the AX8052F100 ultra-low-power microcontroller on the main boards. It allows developers to design, program and evaluate their applications using AXSEM's radio chips and microcontrollers under real world conditions. A range of RF modules with different AXSEM RF ICs for various RF carrier frequencies are available as add-ons.

Hardware
The DVK-BASE-2-GEVK hardware is designed to demonstrate the features of the AX8052F100 and associated RF-ICs. The ultra-low-power microcontroller can be used in all operating modes including low clock speeds and sleep modes. A pair of main boards together with an RF add-on is the perfect base to evaluate and develop RF systems. All RF-modules are matched to 50 Ohm and are equipped with SMA connectors that can either be used with antennas or connected to laboratory equipment.

Software
The DVK-BASE-2-GEVK comes with a productivity enhancing IDE and C-compiler. The AXCode::Blocks integrated development environment (IDE) is a complete tool suite that supports development and debugging of C and assembler code for AXSEM microcontrollers. Its intuitive GUI provides an environment that accelerates the development cycle. The tabbed interface with code highlighting and folding helps to keep overview, while code completion, smart indent and a class browser help to speed-up code generation.

Code Generators
The AX-RadioLab, AX-RadioLab51 and AX-MicroLab code generators create fully functional sample code for a variety of applications. While the AX-RadioLab code generators focus on typical Radio Applications, AX-MicroLab creates typical microcontroller application examples.

C-compiler
A full featured C-compiler is available for free download, allowing the developer to begin immedately. The included optimizer can be flexibly configured for speed or code size.

Debug Link
The AXSEM debug link features not only unlimited break-points, but also a UART style terminal link. This UART link can be used together with AXCode::Blocks for printf style debugging without extra hardware.
