XCVR Development Board & Reference Design
Updated: May 16
Turnkey Long Range Wireless Development Solution
Connected Development (CD) is an expert engineering design services firm leveraging over a decade’s worth of industry experience. Recently, CD launched the XCVR Development Board & Reference Design with SX126x LoRa® Sub-GHz Radio Transceiver. Based on Semtech’s SX126X Series, the XCVR Development Board & Reference Design with SX126x LoRa® Sub-GHz Radio Transceiver provides a cost-effective and compact development solution for a multitude of long-range wireless applications.
The XCVR Development Board has a pre-tested and proven reference design for PCB layout and RF optimization. Offered in three variants, the SX1261, SX1262, and LLCC68 for support in NA and EMEA. Additionally, the XCVR dev board is compatible with Nordic Semiconductor’s nRF52840 SoC.
