- 3 x Wireless starter kit mainboard
- USB and CR2032 power supplies
- USB and Ethernet debug connections
- Breakout pins
- Display and buttons
- Relative humidity and temperature sensor
- Extension board wtih additional peripherals (ie. accelerometer)
- Energy profiling and packet trace capabilites
- 3 x EFR32MG12 2.4 GHz 19 dBm radio board
- 3 x EFR32MG12 2.4 GHz 10 dBm radio board
- AA Battery Board (supports running +19 from battery)
- Integrated debug and packet trace
Note: The Silicon Labs Gecko Software Development Kit (SDK) has support for IAR Embedded Workbench toolchain and the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) toolchain but some of the dynamic multiprotocol examples for Zigbee, Thread, Bluetooth Low Energy and Proprietary Wireless can only be built using IAR Embedded Workbench toolchain. A 30-day trial license for IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM is available with the EFR32 Mighty Gecko Wireless Starter Kit.
Download the Dynamic Multiprotocol Quick Start Guide and follow the instructions to start developing multiprotocol applications.
