LoPy4 is here with a few ways to help you use it, as well as a new version of the Jumper Wire Kit with 5x more wires!
Hello everyone and welcome to another fantastic Friday Product Post. We have a set of some great LoRa IoT products from Pyco: the LoPy4, Pycom Expansion Board and LoRa/Sigfox Antenna Kit are all available starting today and we couldn’t be happier! On top of these three new products we also have a large Jumper Wire Kit with 700 wires ready for you to start prototyping with right away. Let’s jump in and take a closer look!
Hey, buddy! HIGH PY-VE!
The LoPy4 is a compact, quadruple network, MicroPython-enabled development board (LoRa/Sigfox/WiFi/Bluetooth). It’s the perfect enterprise-grade IoT platform for your connected projects. With the latest Espressif ESP32 chipset, the LoPy4 offers a perfect combination of power, friendliness and flexibility. Create and connect your things everywhere – fast.
Your Pycom module will need a way to be programmed; that’s where this board comes in! The Pycom Expansion Board 3.0 allows you to create and connect new IoT projects with your WiPy 2.0, WiPy 3.0, LoPy, LoPy4, SiPy, FiPy and GPy! With dozens of ready-to-use templates and libraries, developing a new IoT solution is now easier and faster.
If you use the LoRa or Sigfox connectivity on the LoPy4, you will need to connect a special antenna beforehand, otherwise you risk damaging the device. Luckily, with this Antenna Kit from Pycom, you won’t need to worry about hurting your fancy LoPy4. This universal LoRa and Sigfox Antenna Kit can also be used with LoPy, SiPy and FiPy IoT development boards.
You ask for more wires, you get more wires. This is a large kit of jumper wires all cut, stripped and pre-bent for your prototyping pleasure. Included with this kit are 14 various lengths of 22AWG wire - 2, 5, 7, 10, 12, 15, 17, 20, 22, 25, 50, 75, 100 and 125mm - 50 pieces of each.
If you are looking for something a little smaller, we still have a jumper wire kit with 140pcs available as well.
And that’s it everyone! We are very excited to finally have the LoPy4 available and can’t wait to see what you make with it! Shoot us a tweet @sparkfun, or let us know on Instagram or Facebook. We’d love to see what projects you’ve made!
We’ll be back next week with even more fantastic new products!
