Imagine 5 networks in one perfectly-formed, same-small-foot-print-as-WiPy- LoPy-and SiPy, IoT development board. MicroPython enabled. Featuring WiFi, Bluetooth, LoRa, Sigfox and dual LTE-M (CAT M1 and NBIoT) the FiPy gives access to all the world’s LPWAN networks on one tiny board.

NOTE: The LTE Antenna MUST always be used with LTE CAT M1 / NB1, or it could cause serious damage to the development board.

Get on with a board that gives you full flexibility during testing, install, deployment and even later when you want to switch real-time your airtime network provider. You can switch when the time is right for you or set some parameters that will do so automatically.

  • I had been captivated by the sound levels of trains I could hear passing by Metford throughout the day/night. I wondered if a sound level sensor reporting data back over LoRa would help me understand when a train was noisy. I also like the idea of seeing or visualising a problem, in this case, an ambient sound level. As you deconstruct a problem it consists of information & that information consists of data. As such, if I cou...
