Nordic Semiconductor’s Thingy:91 prototyping platform targets cellular IoT applications. It’s powered from a 1440-mAh Li-ion battery that’s rechargeable through an onboard USB connector. The heart of the board is an nRF9160 system-in-package (SiP) that incorporates an Arm Cortex-M33 application processor, an LTE modem, GPS, and an RF front-end system. In addition, the platform is certified for global low-power, long-range LTE-M/NB-IoT use, which allows developers to operate worry-free throughout many of the world’s frequency bands.
A major feature of the development board is the wide array of sensors available, including temperature, humidity, air quality, air pressure, color and light, and G-force accelerometers. The kit comes preloaded with application tracking software.
