Hardware Specification


BPI-G1 is an integrated IEEE802.11 b / g / n (WIFI wireless network), IEEE802.15.4 (Zigbee), IEEE 802.11-2007 Standard (Bluetooth Low Energy4.0) development board. It is very easy to put these wireless protocol seamlessly together, you can exchange any different transport protocols, and three kinds of wireless protocols are integrated by three single-chip SOC, you can easily create your own Internet of things (IoT). WIFI part of which is the use of TI's CC3200, which is a high-performance ARM® Cortex®-M4 wireless SOC, internally integrated TCP / IP protocol stack, simply use the BSD Socket can connect to the Internet. The Zigbee is used TI CC2530, which integrates wireless capabilities and enhanced 8051 core SOC, TI after years of improvement, it is already quite mature and stable, TI's Z-stack has achieved Zigbee 2007 / Pro, you can use the 16's short address, you can use the 64-bit long address communication, face large local interconnect systems, advanced security encryption and mesh network structure can easily cope. Bluetooth 4.0 (BLE) using TI CC2540 / 1, an integrated BLE stack and enhanced 8051 core, low-power wireless SOC, at present, most mobile phones have support for Bluetooth 4.0, both as a wearable device, or mobile interactive Accessories, CC2540 can be easily completed. Meanwhile BPI G1 also incorporates a high-performance STM32 ARM® Cortex®-M3 microcontroller, which will help you deal with time-consuming data or transit, the three wireless SOC coordinated. Therefore, the use of BPI G1 can help you quickly achieve a variety of things DIY design.
