Microchip Technology ATSAMR30-XPRO SAM R30 Xplained Pro Evaluation Kit

Microchip Technology ATSAMR30-XPRO SAM R30 Xplained Pro Evaluation Kit is a demonstration and development platform for the SAM R30 Ultra-Low Power RF Microcontrollers. The Xplained Pro Evaluation Kit provides fast access to a wide array of features of the ATSAMR30G18A System-On-Chip. Atmel Studio, an integrated development platform, provides predefined application examples and is supported by the Xplained Pro Kit. Custom designs are simplified with additional peripherals to extend the features of the board.
