MCCI Catena 4618 is a Cortex M0+ LoRaWan + sensors in a Feather footprint #LoRaWAN #Feather @MCCI
MCCI has released the Catena 4618, a complete single-board IoT device and sensors for LoRaWAN projects.
Based on the Murata CMWX1ZZABZ-078, and designed to be compatible with the MCCI Catena 44xx and 46xx family and the Adafruit Feather family of development boards and accessories, the Catena 4618 is a great platform for LoRaWAN investigation and deployment. It works well with The Things Network, or any LoRaWAN 1.0 or 1.1 network in the 865 to 923 MHz range.
Lightweight and small (roughly 2″ by 0.9″), the 4618 needs no external components to measure and send temperature, humidity, and incident light, powered from USB or two AAA cells.
Because of the embedded FRAM, the Catena 4618 fully meets the requirements of LoRaWAN 1.1.
Integrated sensors include:
Temperature and Humidity (Sensirion SHT31-DIS-F with IP66-rated protection membrane)
Incident Light (Silicon Labs Si1133, measuring IR, white light, and UV)
The Feather board format automatically makes boards adhering to the specification compatible with dozens of add on boards from Adafruit and other companies. For more about Feather, click here.
