The VS210 is designed to be suitable for use by anyone from beginners to advanced users experimenting with ISA100 or WirelessHART application. It provides 23 I/O pins that support a number of peripheral functions, such as UART, SPI, I2CTM ports, as well as pulse-width modulated outputs, external interrupt and analog inputs.
The board can be powered in various ways: from a battery, via USB, or using an external AC-DC power adapter. The power source selection is done automatically.
The compact format of the board (100x120 mm) and the battery (single AA cell) powered capability makes it ideal for field operation.
The board can be assembled as a Wireless HART device. In this case it is referred to as VS210H.
