Differences between "expert" and "basic" development boards

Could somebody please explain the main differences between the "expert" and "basic" development boards. I am trying to find the origin of an issue when streaming data from the "expert" board to the "basic" board. When sending files from basic to expert, the throughput is significantly less than expert to basic communication. There also seems to be significant data loss when sending a file from "expert" to "basic" however not the other way around... This may be a software issue however.

Hello , from a hardware

Hello , from a hardware perspective the main difference is the RTS/CTS pin assignment which meant we had to release SDK3.0.2.1 to support the BASIC kit. The EXPERT kit also has the on board ADC for power measurement. I need to look into why the basic to expert is slower throughput and data loss. Let me come back to you. BR JE_Dialog

Thanks for the response,

Thanks for the response,

The application that I am running on both boards is based on the 3.0.2.0 SDK. Would it make sense to port it to 3.0.2.1?

Hi there, yes, it would since

Hi there, yes, it would since the SDK 3.0.2 doesnt support all the shutdown features of the BASIC kit. 3.0.2.1 was released specifically to include support for BASIC kit. PLease note we will also release an SDK update next week (adding OTA update etc.) - that will also support all the kits, so no compatability issues.

If i'm not mistaken you're running the serial port demo ? the point to point demo is also going to be improved , adding flow control and some other features to make it more robust . Plan is by mid Aug to release as a fully tested demo and also provide an IoS/android app.

Best regards,

I am using the streamdata

I am using the streamdata application, I believe flow control is already implemented.

Dear Avlasov1, apologies as

Dear Avlasov1, apologies as iv'e confused matters here : Streamdata is now released and documented :

We are developing a serial port like custom profile : its in demo form now with a final version coming in approx 3-4 weeks .
