LTE IoT Development Board Powers Wearables, Asset Tracking, Metering, and More

July 28, 2021
A low-power LTE-M and NB-IoT connectivity solution joins over 1000 other standard peripheral development boards.

In augmenting its Click family of 1000 peripheral development boards, MikroElektronika (MIKROE) now offers the LTE IOT 8 Click, 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. The pre-certified SiP, from Skyworks Solutions and Sequans Communications, integrates the entire RF front end, transceiver, power management, memory, and baseband modem for an LTE multi-band radio operating in the frequency range of 698 to 2200 MHz.

Click boards are based on the 16-pin mikroBUS standard for sockets on a development board invented by MIKROE 10 years ago. Click boards enable design engineers to easily change peripherals, cutting months off development time. The company releases a new Click board nearly every day at 10 am, and many leading microcontroller companies including Microchip, NXP, Infineon, Dialog, STM, Analog Devices, Renesas, 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.

The LTE IoT 8 Click board costs $79 in single quantities with discounts for multiples.
