SparkFun has teamed up with CircuitDojo to bring you the SparkFun nRF9160 Thing Plus, featuring the powerful Nordic nRF9160 microcontroller in a Feather-compatible footprint. This little chip is capable of both CAT M1 LTE and NB-IoT cellular communication and is designed to work with Zephyr, the go-to RTOS for embedded development.
Not only can you take advantage of Nordic’s advanced power states, but you can also put the device into a low power standby state.
Want to persist data? The nRF9160 Thing Plus has a 4MB external flash for storing data while offline.
NB-IoT and LTE-M are very new services. Ask your mobile operator about availability of SIM cards, coverage, frequencies used and login procedures before you buy the product.
More information is available on the website of Sparkfun.
