The SiPy from Pycom is a multi-network (Sigfox, WiFi and BLE) development platform. It’s 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. You can also configure the SiPy in FSK mode to send packets directly from SiPy to SiPy. This way you can create the network configuration of your choice and then use another SiPy as central Nano-Gateway to forward the data to the cloud via WiFi. Pycom’s module is CE, FCC, IC and RCM certified!
This is the 22dBm version for Sigfox Zones RCZ2 (902MHz – US, Canada and Mexico) and RCZ4 (920-922MHz – Australia, New Zealand, Latin America and SE Asia).
Powerful CPU, BLE and state of the art WiFi radio
1 Km WiFi range
Fits in a standard breadboard (with headers)
Ultra-low power usage: a fraction compared to other connected micro controllers
Note: Using the Sigfox radio without the external antenna can lead to damage of the device and is therefore not recommended.
Please note: Pycom modules are powered by the new and feature-packed Espressif ESP32 chip. As a result, the firmware is evolving constantly as the ESP32 IDF matures. Regular firmware updates are therefore provided.

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.
