NXP Development Kit

NXP Semiconductors’ QN9090DK Development Kit is a highly versatile platform based on the feature-rich NXP QN9090 Bluetooth 5 SoC and is well-suited for developing a wide range of intelligent connected devices. 

The QN9090 features a 48MHz Arm® Cortex®-M4 with 640KB of flash and 152KB of SRAM.  It also integrates a high-performance 2.4GHz transceiver with low current consumption, high sensitivity, and high transmit power. The SoC is mounted on a module with a U.FL connector for RF signal testing, and the module plugs into the kit’s carrier board. 

The carrier board includes a debugger, NFC tag, and various interfaces, including an Arduino header for expansion, with a generic expansion board included.  

The kit is supported in the MCUXpresso, with additional tools to aid with IoT development and RF performance.
