deRFnode

The development board deRFnode is very versatile and tuned to the entire series of dresden elektronik’s radio modules. Whether directly used as end device or for the evaluation of radio modules: The comprehensive equipment as for example temperature, light and acceleration sensors makes the development board suitable for many measurement tasks.

In combination with a deRFmega128 module battery life times of several years can easily be achieved due to the consistent low power design. As a result of its low current consumption of only a few µA the board can even be supplied by energy harvesting.
