nRF7002 DK v0.7.2

Debug input and trace

The Debug in connector (P18) makes it possible to connect external debuggers for debugging when the interface MCU USB cable is not connected or the Development Kit (DK) is in IMCU disable mode.

For trace, a footprint for a 20-pin connector is available (P25). If trace functionality is required, it is possible to mount a 2x10 pin 1.27 mm pitch surface-mount pin header.

The reference voltage for the debug input and trace is by default connected to VDD. This can be connected to VDD_MEAS by cutting SB59 and soldering SB60.
