The products use the latest Espressif ESP32 chipset dual processor, to rapidly create and connect devices via WiFi, 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 board variants in this release. The first, the WiPy 2.0, is a MicroPython-enabled WiFi and Bluetooth IoT development platform that features a 1 km WiFi range. The second is the LoPY, which is a triple communication bearer board offering LoRa, WiFi and BLE communications. The board can double up as a LoRa-based nano-gateway module. The third board is the SiPy board, which also offers triple communications with WiFi, 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 for development of IoT solutions, along with a universal API.
