SN171 – ProtoBoard™, Synapse makes it even easier to put the RF Engine™ to work in your application. Whether you’re developing rapid prototypes or building a sophisticated finished assembly, the ProtoBoard provides a solid platform for embedded SNAP® wireless applications.

Our intent with the ProtoBoard is to not get in your way. To that end, the ProtoBoard has jumpers which enable all peripherals to be fully disabled – freeing all pins of the RF Engine for complete access by your application.

Like all SNAP Nodes, the ProtoBoard may serve as the SNAP Bridge for connection to Portal® or a SNAPconnect. It is also capable of true low-power operation,achieving a 2.5 uA sleep state.
