The RF430FRL152HEVM evaluation module is a self-contained development platform which can be used to evaluate the features and performance of the ISO 15693 compatible RF430FRL15xH NFC Sensor Transponder. The evaluation board can be powered with a battery, over USB or by harvesting RF energy from a nearby NFC-enabled reader or smartphone. The embedded application code in ROM manages RF communication and sensor readings to provide the ultimate flexibility in configuring the device. Developers can configure sampling rates, measurement thresholds and alarms. The 2kByte universal non-volatile memory (FRAM) allows data storage as well as extension and adjustment of application code. For further expansion, the evaluation board is compatible with a number of BoosterPacks from TI’s low-cost LaunchPad rapid prototyping ecosystem, such as the Sensor Hub BoosterPack offering connectivity for additional sensors.

The evaluation module can be used to evaluate the NFC Sensor Transponder for a variety of applications such wearables and health and fitness patches
