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.
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.
