With the inclusion of Qwiic and LiPo battery connectors, multiple GPIO pins, and JTAG PTH pins for debugging, the SparkFun DA16200 Thing Plus is ideal for your next IoT project. It also boasts numerous sleep modes that enable you to achieve current draws as low as 0.2 - 3.5 µA on the WiFi module, making it a highly energy-efficient choice.
The DA16200's SoC offers full offload capabilities, allowing the entire networking OS and TCP/IP stack to run on the chip. This eliminates the need for an external network processor, CPU, or microcontroller. The module is WiFi Alliance certified for IEEE802.11b/g/n, WiFi Direct, and WPS functionalities, and the WiFi Certifications can be transferred without requiring retesting.
Note: The Thing Plus - DA16200 operates at a 3.3V logic level voltage.
The SparkFun Qwiic Connect System is a robust ecosystem of I²C sensors, actuators, shields, and cables that facilitate faster and error-free prototyping. All Qwiic-enabled boards use a common 1mm pitch, 4-pin JST connector, which not only saves PCB space but also ensures polarized connections for error-free hook-ups.
The SparkFun DA16200 Thing Plus comes with several unique features. The Dialog DA16200MOD WiFi Module offers 16 multifunctional GPIO Pins, including up to four 12-bit ADC channels, up to two UARTs, an available SPI Bus, and an available I²C Bus. The Thing Plus form-factor includes dimensions of 5.84cm x 2.29cm and two mounting holes that are 4-40 screw compatible. It also includes 28 PTH Pins, a USB-C Connector, a 2-pin JST Connector for a LiPo Battery, and a 4-pin JST Qwiic Connector. The board also features LEDs for power, battery charging, and status/test, as well as IOC7 buttons and JTAG/SWD PTH Pins.
The DA16200MOD General Features include an operating voltage of 2.1V to 3.6V and an operating temperature range of -40 to 85 °C. It also features an Arm® Cortex®-M4F core with a clock frequency of 30~160MHz, a WiFi processor, an On-Chip RTC (± 250 ppm), and three ultra-low power sleep modes.
