The SODAQ SARA Arduino Form Factor (AFF) R412M that works globally with NB-IoT, LTE-M and even EGPRS fallback for all other regions. Please note that the u-blox R412M module is not yet offered with full support by u-blox. This is scheduled to happen only in February 2018.
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 and with a 1,200mAh battery.
Microchip Atmel SAMD21, 32 bit Arm Cortex
uBlox Sara R412M, all NB-IoT bands, LTE-M, EGPRS.
For EGPRS an a connected battery is required to handle the higher power usage.
uBlox M8Q. Support for GPS, Galileo, GLONASS, and Beidou
LSM303AGR digital magnetometer and accelerometer
With every purchase from the Netherlands, it is required to activate the board.
For this, a SIM Card is required.
If you would like to work with LTE-M, within the Netherlands it is possible to get a SIM Card by registering the board to KPN.
For all other countries we recommend contacting your local provider for a Sim Card compatible with the board.
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 NB-IoT shield, please visit the support page our developers have made for you.Support Page SODAQ SARA AFF.
