VN-300 SMD Development Kit

The VN-300 SMD Development Kit includes a VN-300 SMD installed onto a development board, which includes power options, 30-pin header, GPS SMA connectors and USB and RS-232 ports.

Communication

The VN-300 development board provides easy access to both serial ports on the VN-300. The first serial port is available as a virtual COM port on USB, while the second serial port is available with RS-232 logic levels on a female DB-9 connector.

Access to All Pins

Direct access to all pins on the VN-300 is provided using the 30-pin header to allow for easy prototyping.

Power Options

The VN-300 development board can either be powered by USB, a 5V barrel jack, or directly via the 30-pin header.
