dongle-node is an example of a RICH node containing a JN516x microcontroller on a USB dongle.
The dongle is part of the NXP JN516x Evaluation Kit (see http://www.nxp.com/documents/leaflet/75017368.pdf)
The dongle-node connects to the network in the same way as described in
The dongle contains 2 LEDs that are available as a CoAP resource. They can be accessed via a CoAP client at the IPv6 interface of the border router (e.g. via Copper plug-in on Firefox). The following list gives an overview of the resources:
