Getting Started with SIXFAB Arduino NB-IoT Shield

Sixfab Arduino NB-IoT shield is a Narrow-Band IoT(LTE CAT-NB1) shield for Arduino, based on Quectel’s BC95 module. NB-IoT is a Low Power Wide Area(LPWA) technology that is the latest cellular network option for low power connected projects.

This shield has been designed with built-in temperature, humidity, light sensors, 3-axis accelerometer, relay, micro sim card slot and a built-in antenna. If there is a need for long-range, better signal quality, a U.FL antenna receptacle is placed, can be selected over RF Switch by the short-headers easily. Read More

Getting started with Sixfab NB-IoT Evo. Board

Now this Evolution Board is another member of our Sixfab NB-IoT family. First of all this is not a shield, so it can be used with desired controller. For this tutorial we will be using Raspberry Pi.

Here we are trying to show how you can send data over UDP, So we need Sixfab NB-IoT EVB. Board, a Raspberry Pi and any sensor(we are using JSN-SR04T-2.0). Lets start with making our circuit connection. Pinout of the NB-IoT EVO. Board are mentioned below the board itself. Here we will need TX and RX only. Read More
