The ZWIR4512 Development Kit is a set of three circuit boards intended as an evaluation and application development platform for the ZWIR4512 6LoWPAN module. Each Development Board provides an Ethernet and USB interface to connect with the user's PC. The USB is used as a virtual COM port and provides the power supply for JTAG programming and debugging. The Ethernet interface is provided to easily integrate the 6LoWPAN network into existing network infrastructure. Push buttons and LEDs are available as an on-board user interface. The application circuitry can be easily prototyped.

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) and Internet Key Exchange version 2 (IKEv2) protocol support, 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. All delivered circuit boards are preprogrammed with firmware allowing range testing and UART data transmission "out of the box." No external JTAG adaptor is required, as each circuit board has its own JTAG on-board. Access to the JTAG adaptor is provided over the USB interface.
