Dan Watson from The Sync Channel Blog designed and built a development breakout board that incorporates FeatherWing for LoRa applications.
LoRa is an ultra-long range wireless technology that uses sub-GHz ISM bands. It allows the interconnection of small, low-power sensor nodes and Internet of Things (IoT) devices. There are many LoRa transceiver modules on the market from manufacturers such as HopeRF and MicroChip. These modules can be used to connect small, isolated networks of nodes in custom applications. They can also be used to connect nodes to Low-Power Wide Area Networks (LPWANs), such as LoRaWAN.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
