NEW PRODUCTS – Pycom FiPy / Pycom LTE-M Cellular Antenna


NEW PRODUCTS – Pycom FiPy / Pycom LTE-M Cellular Antenna

Some things just go together, like peanut butter and jelly, or macaroni and cheese, or Shepard and Vakarian— wait getting distracted from all the IoT! Here are two things that really go well together: Pycom’s FiPy and its connectivity add-on, the LTE-M Cellular Antenna!

First up, the FiPy!

Some of us just can’t make up our minds: just deciding what to have for dinner is a major decision process. We want it all! And now we can have it all, with this python-powered internet-of-things powerhouse. It’s like getting to have pizza AND sushi AND tacos AND casserole AND a burger for dinner, wow!

Imagine five networks in one perfectly-formed, same-small-foot-print-as-WiPy- LoPy-and SiPy, IoT development board. MicroPython enabled. FiPy includes WiFiBluetooth LELoRaSigfox and dual LTE-M (CAT M1 and NBIoT). That means you never have to pick-and-choose your IoT transport ever again – the FiPy gives access to all the world’s LPWAN networks on one bitty board.

This one-of-a-kind board gives you full flexibility during testing, install, deployment and even later when you want to switch real-time your airtime network provider. You can switch when the time is right for you or set some parameters that will do so automatically. The FiPy has a built-in operating system that supports MicroPython, the lightweight cousin of the Python web programming language. You can use this board as is, or develop your application, then minimize the design with one of the smaller and simpler Pycom boards (if, say, you realize you don’t need SigFox or Cellular)

Comes with just the dev board. You’ll need an antenna for each transport you want to use other than WiFi/BLE (which has a ceramic antenna built in). Using a transport without an antenna can damage the board!

For LTE you’ll also need a SIM card with data that can go on an LTE network.

And now, the antenna!

This antenna is a perfect addition to your cellular project with LTE connectivity. It’s specifically intended for use with the Pycom LTE-powered kits but it’s just a passive antenna so you can pair it with any dev board you like, as long as it has a uFL connector.

Comes with a flexible copper grounding sticker, you can use to provide a nice big ground plane!

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
