Fresh from our laser cutter is our Pioneers Platform for Pycom. Internet of Things (IoT) projects are wildly fun, though they have the burden of RF cables, antennas and all the other mess of creative exploration. As fellow adventurers of IoT, we invented this platform to keep our projects tidy and secure so we can get straight to the fun stuff: pioneering with hardware.

Invented and manufactured right here at Core Electronics in Newcastle. For makers, by makers.


  • Compatible with all Pycom Shields / Expansion Boards
  • Compatible with all Pycom Boards (with the use of an Expansion Board)
  • Compatible with Pycom Antenna Kit (countersunk mounts for secure fitment)
  • Compatible with a half-size breadboard
  • Secure mounts for up to 3 duck antenna
  • Secure mount for an 3G/LTE antenna
  • RF cables are better protected from accidental sharp bends 
  • PCB RF connectors are better protected from accidental damage
  • Rubber feet for better grip on benches

Note: This is just the platform. All Pycom products and accessories are available separately. We recommend the Pycom Expansion Board & Pycom LoPy if you'd like to get hands on with LoRa/Sigfox/WiFi/BLE. Take a look at the Pycom FiPy if you'd like to explore 3G/LTE.

Handy Pycom resources:

Advanced tip: if you're seeking the maximum distance for WiFi/BLE then use a 2.4Ghz Antenna & u.FL Adaptor Cable. The Pycom Antenna Kit is designed for LoRA and Sigfox only.
