The SODAQ SARA Arduino Form Factor (AFF) R410M is a multi-band LTE-M and NB-IoT development board which means it can be used all over the world. It is the successor to the NB-IoT shield that we have launched successfully on Kickstarter a year ago and of which we have delivered more than 1000 which are used all over the world. It comes with a small antenna that connects to the uFl port.
Microchip Atmel SAMD21, 32 bit Arm Cortex
uBlox Sara R410M multiband module
uBlox M8Q. Support for GPS, Galileo, GLONASS, and Beidou
LSM303AGR digital magnetometer and accelerometer
the R410M version is supporting LTE-M and NB-IoT in all global bands.
The board comes with a Vodafone NB-IoT SIM card that can be used in the following countries: Ireland, Italy, Czech Republic, Germany, Australia, Spain, England and the Netherlands. Here the Vodafone NB-IoT network is live. This SIM card allows for free use of the network for 6 months and 2MB data traffic per month.
Note that we will not include a SIM card in countries where there is no NB-IoT network from Vodafone.
Note that including this SIM card requires us to share your contact details with Vodafone.
The boards get supplied with a U.FL PCB antenna.
To really get the most benefit from this board, you should consider attending one of the starter workshops we offer for the NB-IoT. For more information on the SODAQ SARA, please visit the support page our developers have made for you byclicking on this link.
