Cinterion ENS22-E Development Kit
Thales Cinterion ENS22-E Starter IoT Kit is an easily configurable development kit supplied with the Cinterion ENS22-E module. The ENS22-E wireless module provides a highly efficient NB-IoT mobile connection supporting 5G features. The Starter Kit contains the basic resources of the development kit for IoT applications (PCB board with integrated Cinterion ENS-22 module, USB cable, LTE antenna, SIM card).
ENS22-E Development Kit can work independently without the need to connect any other tools or devices. The module does not contain software. To use the functions, it is necessary to send external commands via AT to the selected interface.
Features and benefits:
• Commissioning the module is easy without the need for additional components
• Supports DSB75 / DSB-Mini as a port expander
• UART via USB VCP
• Direct access to all module signals with jumper interrupt for in-depth testing.
• Measurement of the actual current consumption of the module, without losses and interference.
• Powered via USB or external device (eg DSB75 / DSB-Mini)
• Adjustable module power level level 3.1 - 4.2 V
• Other supported interfaces: ASC1, GPIO
• Easy concept for use and signaling
• QR code scanning allows the user to access all the information needed for use
• Prototyping Kit
