DVK-SFAZ-API-1-GEVK: Sigfox™ API Development Kit for RCZ4

The miniature (13mm x 48mm) Sigfox development kit (DVK), DVK-SFAZ-1-GEVK, allows designers to quickly develop Sigfox connected applications in the RCZ4 region using the AX-SFAZ-API SoC solution.

The DVK comes with a free two-year Sigfox subscription and is pre-programmed with the Sigfox stack and an example application that can be used as-is or extended. Approximately 40kB of FLASH is available for application code.

Included in the kit is the AXDBG-2-GEVK debugger used for debugging software and programming the FLASH.

To program the DVK, the designer needs to download the development tools and the API software library (link below in the Technical Documents table). The commercially available IAR 8051 compiler is also required. Documentation for the example application is included in the API software library.

The DVK is also a reference design. The designer can copy and paste the reference design to their application board and reuse the DVK Sigfox ready ™ certification (P1). The reference design has also been checked for regulatory compliance, minimizing risk for the customer's product level compliance.

The DVK has an SMA connector to allow for both conducted measurements as well as radiated measurements using the included whip antenna.

Designers that already have an application microcontroller but need a Sigfox modem can use the AX-SFAZ solution and corresponding DVK-SFAZ-1-GEVK development kit.
