Redwire EconoTAG MC13224V Dev Board

Freescale Semiconductor's 3rd generation 2.4 GHz 802.15.4 wireless enabled SoC (System on Chip) MC13224V is a powerhouse with an ARM 7 TDMI-S 32-bit CPU. But it is still just a chip. Redwire's EconoTAG MC13224V Dev Board is everything you need to get a MC13224V-powered project up and running.

The EconoTAG core runs at 24Mhz and gives you access to 36 GPIO, JTAG interface for debugging and firmware uploading, UART, SPI, I2C and FT2232H based Hi Speed USB and has an on board bootloader—so you don't need anything else to start programming your project. The built-in 802.15.4 radio can transmit approximately 500ft @ 0dDm (open-air LOS range) with it's built-in PCB patch antenna.

The EconoTAG finds the balance between ease of use and seriously powerful wireless abilities. Open development environment is available at
