NEW PRODUCTS – PyCom WiPy 2.0 / LoPy 1.0 / 900Mhz Antenna Kit / Expansion Board 2.0 for WiPy IOT Development Platform


PyCom WiPy 2.0

Pycom introduces the WiPy 2.0 – a tiny MicroPython enabled WiFi & Bluetooth IoT development platform. With a 1KM WiFi range, state of the art Espressif ESP32 chipset and dual processor, the WiPy is all about taking the Internet of Things to the next level. Create and connect your things everywhere. Fast.

Features

  • Powerful CPU, BLE and state of the art WiFi radio
  • 1KM Wi Range
  • MicroPython enabled, the Linux of IoT for fast deployment
  • Fits in a standard breadboard (with headers)
  • Ultra-low power usage: a fraction compared to other connected micro controllers
  • Hardware floating point acceleration
  • Python multi-threading

And as you know, Pycom has already written a powerful and intuitive Python API to take advantage of every feature of the hardware.

Other WiFi boards are available and you might think, “yet another platform…”, but guess what? It’s not. All Pycom boards run Python and that works just like the Python you are used to working with on a PC. The learning curve is minimal. Simply put, Pycom boards are all about Python and the internet, but with rocket fuel.

Check out the tutorials and quickstart guide at Pycom to see how fast it is to get going!

Note: This board does not come assembled and does not include headers.


PyCom LoPy 1.0 – LoRa + WiFi + BLE

With LoRa, Wifi and BLE, the Pycom LoPy is the only triple bearer MicroPython enabled microcontroller on the market today – the perfect enterprise grade IoT platform for your connected Things. With the latest Espressif ESP32 chipset the LoPy offers a perfect combination of power, friendliness and flexibility. Create and connect your things everywhere. Fast.

Features

  • Powerful CPU, BLE and state of the art WiFi radio. 1KM Wifi Range
  • Can also double up as a Nano LoRa gateway
  • MicroPython enabled, the Linux of IoT for fast deployment
  • Fits in a standard breadboard (with headers)
  • Ultra-low power usage (850uA with the WiFi connection active): a fraction compared to other connected micro controllers
  • 100% Python programmable
  • Lots of GPIOs, interfaces and peripherals
  • Hardware floating point acceleration
  • Python multi-threading

The LoPy can act as both a LoRa Nano Gateway and a multi-bearer (LoRa, WiFi and BLE) development platform. It is programmable with MicroPython and the Pymakr IDE for fast IoT application development, easy programming in-field, and extra resilience with network failover. The best blend of speed to deployment and access to new LPWAN networks rolling out across Europe, USA, Africa and India.

900Mhz Antenna Kit – For LoPy, LoRa, etc

This LoRa Antenna Kit is meant for use with the LoPy LoRa, WiFi and BLE board or the SiPy Sigfox, WiFi and BLE board. But, it’s good for any 900MHz radio, including our LoRa breakouts/Feathers or even the RFM69 900MHz radios we stock!

Includes:

  • External antenna
  • RF Cable Assemblies SMA(F) JK-IPEX MHF U.FL 1.13 100MM
  • SMA Tilt Swivel 1/2 Wave Whip antenna
