IoT LoRa® Boards for Raspberry Pi, Arduino, and BBC micro:bit

Pi Supply's IoT LoRa boards allow users to create their own DIY LoRa node or gateway

Image of Pi Supply's IoT LoRa Boards for Raspberry Pi, Arduino, and BBC micro:bitPi Supply's range of LoRa nodes and gateway boards are designed for Raspberry Pi, micro:bit, and Arduino. LoRa (long-range) is the smart, long-range, wireless transmission technology that is enabling the future of the Internet of Things (IoT). LoRa is ultra-low-power but is only suitable for ultra-small amounts of data. This makes it ideal for sensors such as weather monitoring, air quality, and more.

Low-cost single board computers are ideal for LoRa applications as they are versatile, durable, and fully customizable. These boards allow users to create an inexpensive LoRa gateway or node that is compatible with The Things Network. Setup of a LoRa gateway/node takes minutes rather than hours for an ultra-low cost compared to traditional gateways.

Features
  • IoT LoRa gateway HAT:
    • IoT LoRa Raspberry Pi HAT allows users to create an inexpensive LoRa gateway that is compatible with The Things Network in conjunction with Raspberry Pi
    • Setup takes minutes rather than hours
    • Ultra-low cost compared to traditional gateways
    • Low power consumption
    • Fully soldered and assembled:
      • Plug into a Raspberry Pi, install the software, and it is ready to go
      • No waiting for compiling
    • HAT form-factor: more compact than other solutions on the market
    • Industrial-standard reliability
    • Realtime monitoring
  • IoT LoRa nodes:
    • IoT LoRa node pHAT allows users to create an inexpensive LoRa node that is compatible with The Things Network in conjunction with Raspberry Pi, Arduino, or BBC micro:bit
    • LoRa stack on the chip allows for quicker prototyping
      • Add sensors, buttons, and more to complete a LoRa network
    • Supports LoRaWAN connections and LoRaP2P modes
    • u.FL connector and antenna allow different antennas to be used or integrated into boxes with external antennas
