Frequently Asked Questions
How many KTDG102 USB Dongles are needed to form a Thread Network?
To be able to test a Thread network you will need at least two KTDG102 USB Dongles in order to create the simplest network and to generate 802.15.4/Thread traffic between them. However, a good minimum set-up would be formed by three KTDG102 USB Dongles so that one of them can be used as packet sniffer and the other two as Thread nodes. By this way it is possible to create a network and to monitor its traffic as well.
Which platforms does the KTDG102 USB Dongle support?
The KTDG102 USB Dongle works under any Windows, Linux and MAC OS platform and can be interfaced to any host MCU/processor through its Serial and/or USB interface. To get more detailed information about KTDG102 USB Dongle driver installation refer to the Knowledge Base in Support section.
Could be developed the customer application code inside the KTDG102 USB Dongle ?
The KTDG102 USB Dongle is designed to test the KTWM102 Thread Network Co-Processor module. This means that the system is designed to be controlled by a host by sending commands at its interfaces. The customer could develop its application code on whatever host platform at its choice and then interface it to the KTDG102 USB Dongle. That will do the Thread networking job easier than ever!
Could be other firmware flashed inside a KTDG102 USB Dongle?
The Atmel SAMR21E microcontroller of the KTDG102 USB Dongle can be flashed through the debug connector of the KTDG102 USB Dongle. However, a firmware is flashed in the KTDG102 USB Dongle the Kirale warranty will be lost and it will be no longer available to use it again as a Thread Evaluation tool running KiNOS Network Operating System (as secure Kirale bootloader firmware will be lost). It could be done at your own risk!
Is the KTDG102 USB Dongle a general purpose evaluation board?
No. The KTDG102 USB Dongle is a Thread evaluation tool, designed and engineered as exhibitor of the KTWM102 Thread NCP module.
What is the KTDG102 USB Dongle?
The KTDG102 USB Dongle is the definitive Swiss Army knife for Thread. The KTDG102 USB Dongle is an evaluation tool to get familiar, test, and understand Thread wireless technology by exploiting the full potential of the KTWM102 Thread NCP module in a USB stick form factor.
