With WiFi, BLE and cellular LTE CAT M1/NB1, the Pycom GPy is a triple-bearer MicroPython enabled micro controller – the perfect enterprise grade IoT platform for your connected Things. Create and connect your things everywhere, fast.
Imagine three networks in one perfectly-formed, same-small-foot-print-as-WiPy-LoPy-FiPy-and-SiPy, IoT development board. MicroPython enabled. GPy includes WiFi, Bluetooth LE and dual LTE-M (CAT M1 and NBIoT). That means you get a hat-trick of low/medium/long range transmports. BLE is great for local and mobile communication, WiFi when you want free medium range data, and cellular LTE for use-anywhere long range.
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 GPy has a built-in operating system that supports MicroPython, the lightweight cousin of the Python 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 LTE cellular)
Comes with just the dev board. You’ll need an antenna for LTE usage. The WiFi/BLE (which has a ceramic antenna built in). Using LTE/cellular without an antenna can damage the board!
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
