The BM70 PICtail™ and PICtail Daughter Board is an Evaluation Board (EVB) that showcases the capabilities of the BM70 BLE module. The BM70BLES1FC2 EVB is designed to emulate the functions of the Microchip BM70 BLE module. The board includes an integrated configuration and programming interface for plug-and-play capability. It also provides an integrated test environment for all functions supported in the BM70 BLE module. BM70BLES1FC2 EVB (above) is the default EVB with module BM70BLES1FC2 (IS1870SF BLE chip, antenna, and shielding case) implemented on the EVB. Test interfaces supported for all application functions are connected out.
