Elecom Electronics Supply presents the Pycom LoPy, a compact triple
network MicroPython enabled development board designed to offer the perfect
enterprise grade IoT platform for your connected Things.
Featuring the latest Espressif ESP32 chipset, the LoPy offers a perfect
combination of power, user-friendliness and flexibility, enabling the user to create
and connect things everywhere.
The LoPy can act as both a LoRa Nano Gateway and a multi-bearer (LoRa,
Wi-Fi and BLE) development platform suitable for all LoRa networks around the
globe. The board is programmable with MicroPython and the Pymakr plugin IDE for
fast IoT application development, easy programming in-field and extra
resilience with network failover.
The LoPy module is the best blend of speed to deployment and access to
new LPWAN networks rolling out across Europe, USA, Africa and India.
Key LoPy features include powerful CPU, BLE and state-of-the-art Wi-Fi
radio with a 1km range; ability to double up as Nano LoRa gateway; ultra-low
power usage; 2 x UART, 2 x SPI, I2C, I2S, micro SD card; 8×12 bit ADCs as analogue
channels; 4×16 bit with PWM and input capture as timers; DMA on all peripherals;
up to 24 GPIOs; node range up to 40km; Nano Gateway up to 22km; and Nano Gateway capacity up to 100 nodes.
Espressif ESP32 chipset; dual processor and Wi-Fi radio system on chip;
network processor handling Wi-Fi connectivity and IPv6 stack; main processor
entirely free to run the user application; and extra ULP-coprocessor monitoring
GPIOs and the ADC channels, and controlling most of the internal peripherals
during deep-sleep mode while only consuming 25uA.
The Pycom LoPy smart module is available from
Elecom Electronics Supply, the ANZ local wireless and communications supplier.
