Getting Started:
Developer Kits

Overview

To develop a connectivity solution, you’ll need an imp card or module, and a development board to plug it into. The imp card and our April development board – together forming our standard Dev Kit – are available for purchase from any of the distributors listed below, or you can download complete design packages from our Hardware Reference section.

You can also build an SD socket onto your own custom development board. We provide guidelines to ensure that your design performs best with the Imp.

An imp card and an April breakout board together comprise our standard Dev Kit. It is the kit we recommend you use to get started with. It is available from the following suppliers:

The P3V3 is a module-based development board. It is recommended for projects that require more than the six GPIO pins offered by the April, and for developers who are ready experimenting with the imp002 solder-down module.

The Aria is recommended for developers seeking the smallest possible form-factor.

The C3V0 is a module-based development board with a fully featured LiPo charging circuit.

If you are ready to take your design to production, you can purchase the imp002 module from one of our distributors listed below, or contact sales for quantities over 1000 units.

The imp003 is a 7.9mm x 10mm module produced by Murata. Only one tenth of the size of the imp002, the imp003 allows for great flexibility in its placement within your product. Its peripherals can be customized to suit your design to accommodated low-cost AC designs and low-power battery designs. The imp003 does not carry any wireless certifications, nor does it include an onboard antenna – as such it is only recommended for high volume applications (>20k/yr).

Let us know if you are interested in becoming a distributor.

We're in full production, so if you are interested in buying the imp card or module in bulk, contact us at sales@electricimp.com. Also, learn more about our Business Solutions.
