  • Thanks for the detailed reply, Nate! I picked up the board from Digi-Key and can't wait to start testing!

    Also, super cool beehive project! :)

  • It's really great to see SparkFun leading the development of boards with the new u-blox modules!

    However, I'm curious to know the reasons behind only including a u.FL connector. Given the available real-estate, it appears the board could have accommodated the pads for an edge-launch SMA connector. This would have had the benefit of providing users with the option for a more direct and reliable antenna connection. I know I constantly worry about the fragile u.FL cables/connectors.

  • I wanted to point out that the part number for the LDO regulator is not specified on the schematic for this board. However, based on the markings observed in the photos, it looks like you're using the AP2112 (https://www.diodes.com/assets/Datasheets/AP2112.pdf), which has a max voltage of 6V and 600 mA output.

  • Hi there,

    Would the BME280 sensor be suitable for use outdoors during the winter? I'm looking for a good sensor to deploy in the Canadian Arctic, which would remain outdoors for an entire year. I'd house the sensor within a radiation shield and cover all other electrical connections/components with silicone conformal coating. I'm just wondering if condensation might be an issue over time.

    Cheers, A
