Atmel / Microchip ATmega256RFR2 Xplained Pro Evaluation Kit

Atmel / Microchip ATmega256RFR2 Xplained Pro Evaluation Kit is a demonstration and evaluation platform for the ATmega256RFR2 Wireless Microcontroller. Supported by the Atmel Studio Integrated Development Environment (IDE), the ATmega256RFR2 Xplained Pro Evaluation Kit provides easy access to the features of the ATmega256RFR2 MCU and explains how to integrate the device into an application design. The Xplained Pro Evaluation Kit includes an onboard Embedded Debugger, and no external tools are necessary to program or debug the ATmega256RFR2.

Atmel / Microchip Xplained Pro Evaluation Kits support a wide range of Xplained Pro Extension Boards, which are connected through a set of standardized headers and connectors. Each Extension Board has an identification (ID) chip to uniquely identify which boards are connected to an Xplained Pro MCU Evaluation Kit Mainboard.
