Hello everyone, Sorry for delay in blogs, I was in transit and I am currently located HERE So It Kinna difficult to stay connected to the world.

Moving on, as the part of the Challengers Kit we received the following Hardware,
























But first lets go through the Unboxing Video sorry for camera orientation

The Main processor board

The board is based on STM32L476RG MCU which boasts

    ARM® 32-bit Cortex®-M4 CPU with FPU & ART Accelerator @ 80MHz

     1MB Flash memory

     128KB SRAM

    USB OTG 2.0 full-speed

    RTC with HW calendar, alarms and calibration

    24 capacitive sensing channels

    16x timers

    1x USER LED

    1x USER LED

    Arduino style headers + ST Morpho connectors (20x2 +20x2 Headers)

    ... And many more DATASHEET Download

BLE Expansion Board


BLE Expansion Board - X-NUCLEO-IDB05A1X-NUCLEO-IDB05A1


This Board is based on SPBTLE-RF BlueNRG-MS RF module and connects to the main Controller board over SPI BUS and Interrupts. It has Arduino comparable connectors and can be used with a Arduino comparable board.


The Kit is FCC Certified so you are goos to get the same in the final product.


And I am a huge fan of the Star Ground Pad on the 2x20 Header

Sensor Expansion Board


MEMS Sensor Expansion Board X-NUCLEO-IKS01A2X-NUCLEO-IKS01A2


This is a All in One Sensor package by ST which boasts the following

  ST LSM6DSL MEMS 3D accelerometer (± 16 g) and 3D gyroscope (±2000 dps) 

  ST LSM303AGR MEMS 3D accelerometer (±16 g) and 3D magnetometer (±50 gauss)

  ST LPS22HB MEMS pressure sensor, 260 - 1260 hPa

ST  HTS221HTS221 capacitive relative humidity and temperature sensor

  It also packs the Arduino Headers


It connects all the sensors on an I2C bus for easy connectivity. and features some advance configurations like Free Fall detection, Single/Double tap gesture detection with sensitivity adjustment,  Etc.

WiFi Expansion Board


WiFi Expansion Board X-NUCLEO-IDW01M1X-NUCLEO-IDW01M1


This is a WiFi Expansion board based on the SPWF01SA module. The module itself is an STM32 WiFi SoC seen in wafer package. It boasts

  512KB on chip memory

  1 MB program flash memory 

   Integrated TCP/IP, TLS/SSL

   AT command set host interface

Moving on.

First Impressions

The unboxing of the package was more like a Squashed fruit opening, with the box completely crushed and the pins of the board somewhat damaged (nothing a powerful nail couldn't fix)

after some Nailing


So I moved on and Seams like there is a lot go GunK on the PCB's. Eeeyyuuuu .. .. ....


And yes the Yellowish part on the headers is factory flux


The WiFi Expansion board has ST Morpho connectors as only one side headers !!



Thanks for reading, More coming soon !!

Ohh I forgot This.


Thanks rscasny, for this lovely card.
