The two evaluation kits are very similar. Both are supplied with the J-Link-OB debugging and programming interface. Both have a "Debug Out" connector to allow debugging target hardware. All example code in the Nordic nRF5 SDK will function the same on both boards.
The main difference between the two is the use of the BMD-300 Series on our Rigado board. In addition to being able to prototype a design with a pre-certified module, Rigado also provides access to the following Rigado-specific features:
- RigDFU, our secure bootloader
- BMDware, our Beacon, UART-BLE bridge and GPIO application firmware
- Rigablue, libraries for iOS and Android that reduce the complexity of Bluetooth application programming.
