The DWUSB is ideal for RF communication and location services and can be used to speed development, as a proof of concept, or be directly embedded into products. The device incorporates an ARM processor, RF transceiver, accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, and an altimeter all into a very compact USB powered design. All functions of the device can be accessed through a USB virtual serial port from a PC or embedded processor. Applications are provided to exercise and evaluate all the features of this device. Advanced users can write their own microcontroller code and upload it to the device via the USB interface.
