MIKROE introduces LTE IoT 8 Click board

MikroElektronika (MIKROE) has launched LTE IOT 8 Click – a new member of its Click family of peripheral development boards – targeting designers of low-power LTE-M and NB-IoT connectivity solutions.

Intended for wearables, asset tracking, industrial monitoring, and smart metering the boards feature 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 698-2200MHz frequency range.

Click boards are based on the 16-pin mikroBUS standard for sockets on a development board invented by MIKROE ten years ago. Click boards enable design engineers to change peripherals easily, cutting months off development time. The company releases a new Click board regularly 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.
