IoT dev board for mobile applications

25 August 2021 Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless, IoT

MikroElektronika has launched LTE IoT 8 Click – a member of its 1000-strong Click family of peripheral development boards – targeting designers of low-power LTE-M and NB-IoT connectivity solutions in wearables, asset tracking, industrial monitoring and smart metering.

LTE IoT 8 Click is a compact add-on board that features the SKY66430-11, a multi-band, multi-chip system-in-package (SiP) supporting 5G Massive IoT (LTE-M/NB-IoT) platforms from Skyworks Solutions and Sequans Communications. The pre-certified SiP integrates the entire RF front end, transceiver, power management, memory and baseband modem for an LTE multi-band radio operating in the 698-2200 MHz frequency range.

Click boards are based on the 16-pin mikroBUS standard for sockets on a development board invented by MikroElektronika 10 years ago. Click boards enable design engineers to change peripherals easily, potentially cutting development time significantly. The company releases a new Click board nearly every day and many leading microcontroller companies including Microchip Technology, NXP Semiconductors, Infineon Technologies, Dialog Semiconductor, STMicroelectronics, Analog Devices, Renesas Electronics and Toshiba now include the mikroBUS socket on their development boards.

LTE IoT 8 Click is supported by a mikroSDK compliant library which includes functions that simplify software development. This Click board comes as a fully tested product, ready to be used on any system equipped with the mikroBUS socket.
