Transceivers need friends to communicate with! We recommend purchasing a pair of Transceivers to begin experimenting.

Wireless communication is pretty amazing! You can unlock some very cool capabilities like collecting data from some distant sensor, or remote-controlling hardware. The PiicoDev Transceiver allows you to send and receive messages to other transceivers up to 100m away. Simply connect to a PiicoDev-compatible development board and follow the guide to begin sending and receiving data.

Daisy chain the Transceiver with other PiicoDev modules to create a more complex project. Use the provided Python / MicroPython library that simplifies setting up the transceiver and sending data. Transceivers will broadcast by default and can be configured with a group or address to allow for direct messaging to only intended recipients. That's especially useful for projects with multiple Transceivers where there may be a lot of messages going back and forth.

The PiicoDev Transceiver uses a HopeRF RFM69HCW radio operating at 915MHz to communicate. The on-board antenna is designed right into the PCB - for best performance, keep the antenna way from metal enclosures or other sources of interference.

Features

  • Easy, wireless communication up to 100m
  • Create your own network of connected devices.
  • Compact, on-board antenna
  • 915MHz is suitable for amateur use in Australia.
  • No soldering necessary
  • A great guide to get you started
  • 2x LEDs: Rx/Tx indicator, and user-controllable
  • PiicoDev connector, compatible with Qwiic and STEMMA QT (3.3V only)
  • 2.54mm breakout for breadboarding/prototyping
  • Manufactured and supported in Australia by Core Electronics

PiicoDev Overview

PiicoDev is a ecosystem designed for rapid prototyping and maker education. The range includes:

Here are some of the features we have baked into PiicoDev:

  • Unified MicroPython libraries. The same MicroPython code examples will work on all supported platforms.
  • Simple-and-expandable connections. Modules can be connected using a 4-pin connector and daisy-chained to expand projects.
  • Breakout pins. Every module has a breakout section for optional advanced uses.
  • Consistent size. We have taken care to ensure modules are consistent sizes so that they easy for 3D printing cases, stacking and experimenting with.
  • Creative freedom. Simmer all of these features together and you end up with lots of creative freedom while still being a hands-on electronics experience.

PiicoDev electronics modules are designed and manufactured in Newcastle. They are priced for makers and education alike (affordable!). Get in touch with us if you have any questions.
