Detailed Description

This section describes each major function or component on the MAXWSNENV board. This demo kit it is general purpose in nature, however, the included sensors allow for the development of sophisticated Wireless Sensor Network and IoT nodes.

The MAXWSNENV board should be used with the following documents:

Each of these is a separate document. Please access the latest version of the documents.


The MAX32600 is a low-power, mixed-signal microcontroller with a variety of applications, including integration in wearable medical devices.

Board Power

The demo board is powered by on-board coin-cell battery or by a connected and powered MAXHDK.

Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) controller

The Bluetooth Low Energy controller is Bluetooth V4.0 compliant.


The MAXWSNENV is fitted with four environmental sensors. Digital sensors are connected to the MAX32600 I2C master interface. Analog sensors are connected to the MAX32600 ADC interface. The MAXWSNENV includes the following sensors.


Pushbutton SW1 can be used to generate an input for test purposes on port pin P1.5. SW1 is normally-open and therefore provides a logic 0 when depressed. Firmware defines the action taken on this switch closure.

Pushbutton SW2 provides a Power-On-Reset function to the MAX32600 microcontroller.


The MAXWSNENV Board provides access to the MAX32600 USB D+ and D- signals on connector J1 pins 16 and 18 respectively.


A single, tri-color LED with series resistors is connected to GPIO pins P1.4, P1.6 and P1.7.
