Pycom range supports design engineers for IoT applications

10 March 2017

RS Components announced availability of a range of development boards and accessories from Pycom to support engineers designing for IoT applications.

Based on a MicroPython enabled microcontroller, the boards offer a platform for connected things with multiple communication standards. They use the latest Espressif ESP32 chipset dual processor, supporting engineers to rapidly create and connect devices via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and the long-range IoT communication technologies LoRa and Sigfox. These enterprise-grade IoT development boards offer ultra-low-power usage and fit in a standard breadboard with headers. 

There are three new board variants. The first, the WiPy 2.0, is a tiny MicroPython-enabled Wi-Fi and Bluetooth IoT development platform that features a 1km Wi-Fi range. The second is the LoPY, which is a triple communication bearer board offering Lora, Wi-Fi and BLE communications. The board also offers the added benefit that it can double up as a LoRa-based nano-gateway module. The third board is the SiPy board, which also offers triple communications with Wi-Fi, BLE and Sigfox (with Sigfox RCZ1/3 and RCZ2/4 options).

Other accessories to support the development of IoT applications include: the Pyboard Universal Expansion Board v2; the LoPy/SiPy Universal Antenna Kit for LoRa and Sigfox); plus Pycase cases for all three boards offered in green, blue, grey, and clear colours. In addition, coming soon on the Pycom Exchange are dozens of ready-to-use templates and libraries to ensure the fast and easy development of new IoT solutions, along with a universal API to allow the building of a large set of powerful, robust and portable libraries across different hardware platforms.
