The ASTRA platform (STEVAL-ASTRA1B) is a development kit and reference design that simplifies prototyping, testing and evaluating advanced asset tracking applications such as livestock monitoring, fleet management, and logistics.
It comes with comprehensive software, firmware libraries, tools, battery, and plastic case. Thanks to its modular and optimized design, it simplifies the development of tracking and monitoring innovative solutions.
The STEVAL-ASTRA1B is built around the STM32WB5MMG module and the STM32WL55JC SoC for short and long range connectivity (BLE, LoRa, and 2.4 GHz and sub 1-GHz proprietary protocols). ST25DV64K for NFC connectivity is also available. The on-board STSAFE-A110 enhances security features.
The kit embeds a complete set of environmental and motion sensors (LIS2DTW12, LSM6DSO32X, HTS221, STTS22H, LPS22HH). Moreover, the Teseo-LIV3F GNSS module provides outdoor positioning.
The power management, built around ST1PS02 and STBC03, is optimized for long battery life.
