DPA Test

This tool is intended for debugging and testing of TR module applications communicating using IQRF DPA protocol.

The functionality is the same like in the Terminal mode. In addition there are fields for DPA packet header entering (NADR, PNUM, PCMD, HWPID).

The DPA Test can be used also for a communication with a DPA device in DPA Service Mode or DPA Peer-to-Peer using the CATS.
