Developed with suppliers Cypress Semiconductor and Murata, the Nebula board is an IoT cloud ready board for prototype development.
Wireless connectivity comes from the Murata 1DX module, which integrates the Cypress CYW4343W Wi-Fi and BT/BLE combo SoC. This includes a 2.4 GHz WLAN IEEE 802.11 b/g/n baseband/radio and Bluetooth 4.2 support.
Also onboard are a power amplifier (PA) and a low-noise amplifier (LNA) along with an internal transmit/receive RF switch.
Nebula is equipped with 4 different interfaces to access other IoT applications – Arduino compatible shield, mikroBUS socket, Pmod Connector/Interface and USB.
The board can also be expanded through a range of application specific add-on boards, available Future Electronics.
The Nebula board supports applications development through the Cypress WICED (Wireless Internet Connectivity for Embedded Devices) Studio development platform.
