    • This feature also allows developers to build ZigBee certifiable projects that can be directly read and built by IAR EWARM v5.40.
  • Enhanced out-of-box experience
    • When connected, users will be able to automatically detect development hardware and select the sample applications to put on the nodes in the development network.

Pricing and Availability

The EM35x Development Kits cost $2,500 USD at the base level and include a 30-day evaluation license for IAR EWARM v5.40. A version with a permanent IAR EWARM license is also available.
