This guide describes the hardware for the KW38 minimum BoM development board. The KW38 Minimum BoM development board is configurable, low-power, and cost-effective evaluation and development board for application prototyping and demonstration of the KW39A/38A/37A/39Z/38Z family of devices.
The KW38 is an ultra-low-power, highly integrated single-chip device that enables Bluetooth Low Energy (Bluetooth LE) or Generic FSK (at 250, 500 and 1000 kbps) for portable, extremely low-power embedded systems.
The KW38 integrates a radio transceiver operating in the 2.36 GHz to 2.48 GHz range supporting a range of GFSK, an ARM Cortex-M0+ CPU, up to 512 KB Flash and up to 64 KB SRAM, Bluetooth LE Link Layer hardware and peripherals optimized to meet the requirements of the target applications.
MKW38 device is also available on the FRDM-KW38 Freedom Development Board. For more information about the FRDM-KW38 Freedom Development Board, see the FRDM-KW38 Freedom Development Board User's Guide (document FRDMKW38ZUG available in the NXP Connectivity website also).
