Whisker.IO Developers Kit

Product Id: WIO-900-DK1

The developer's kit contains everything an OEM needs to start developing with the Whisker.IO platform.  It supports using a microcontroller or a PC as a gateway, making rapid application development fast and easy.


The Developer's Kit is intended for hardware, firmware, and software developers that would like to integrate the Whisker.IO technology into a new product or solution.  It includes:

  • (1) Gateway Adapter Board - USB
  • (3) SensorBlock - Temp/RH
  • (6) AAA batteries
  • (3) 1/2 wave dipole antennas
  • (1) Whisker.IO Engine

The gateway adapter board provides an easy way to connect a Whisker.IO Engine to any PC that supports USB virtual COM: ports. 

The SensorSquare development board comes with a Whisker.IO Engine, 2xAAA battery holder, and prototyping area.  All of the Whisker.IO Engine signals are made available in the prototying area, making it easy to quickly connect sensors or devices for testing, prototyping, and proof-of-concept validation.  The SensorSquare can also be configured with on-board sensors:

  • Temperature/Humidity
  • Motion
  • Pressure

There are a number of ways you can use the developer kit.  First, you can quickly validate the range performance of Whisker.IO using the WhiskerRanger range testing application.  Second, you can use a terminal emulator to test the various AT commands, monitor deployed devices, or configure devices in the field.  Lastly, you can use the kit to prototype an application or proof-of-concept project.
