SAM R34 Xplained Pro Evaluation Kit

Microchip's hardware platform used to evaluate the ATSAMR34 low-power LoRa® sub-GHz SiP

Image of Microchip's SAM R34 Xplained Pro Evaluation Kit The SAM R34 Xplained Pro evaluation kit (DM320111) from Microchip Technology is a hardware platform used to evaluate the ATSAMR34 low-power LoRa® sub-GHz SiP. This FCC, ISED, and RED certified board is not only an evaluation platform but also an excellent reference design for developing SAM R34-based LoRa end-node applications. Supported by the Atmel Studio integrated development platform, the kit provides easy access to the features of the ATSAMR34 and explains how to integrate the device in a custom design. The Xplained Pro MCU series evaluation kits include an on-board embedded debugger (EDBG), and no external tools are necessary to program or debug the ATSAMR34. This kit offers additional peripherals to extend the features of the board and ease the development of custom designs.
