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.
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
