Running List of ‘Cellular Modems, Modules, Breakouts, Shields, Boards, and More!’ via @hologram @Chris_Gammell #IoTuesday
Keep track of hardware can be tricky – even confusing. What’s a developer to do? Make a spreadsheet! (And hopefully share it with others ?) The spreadsheet is a work in progress and would be well served by additional contributions from the community.
We did what engineers do when things get confusing: we made a spreadsheet.
This one is on GitHub as a CSV. That means it’s shareable, extensible and also our community members can contribute to it with a Pull Request (PR). In fact, we’d love for this to not only be a community resource when starting projects, but also as a way to track any new hardware you’re creating with cellular capabilities.
Our goal is to get you and your project/product online quickly. Starting from a good place in terms of hardware and software resources can really speed that up.
Check out the full list here, the repo here, and more information from hologram.io here.
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to.

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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
