The SDAWIR-4532 Software Development and Application Kit is a set of three circuit boards intended as an evaluation and application development platform for the ZWIR4532 6LoWPAN module. Each Development Board provides a USB interface to connect with the user's PC. The USB is used as a virtual COM port and provides the power supply for programming and debugging.  Push buttons and LEDs are available as an on-board user interface. The application circuitry can be easily prototyped.

An Ethernet interface is provided to easily integrate the 6LoWPAN network into existing network infrastructure. 

The Development Kit provides firmware libraries and example programs. Firmware libraries include an operating system, IDT's mesh-routing-enabled 6LoWPAN stack, IP-Security (IPSec), as well as support for over-the-air (OTA) updates and different peripheral libraries. Ethernet gateway firmware is provided with the kit, allowing transparent integration of sensor networks into existing Ethernet networks when the Ethernet adapter is inserted into the EV kit board. 

The EV Kit can be loaded with various firmware options and operated from data provided on the IDT web site. Plug the USB cable into a PC and fundamental operation of the EV kits begins.
