Making LoRa cheaper, more accessible and hackable using the BBC micro:bit
LoRa (Long Range) is the smart, long-range, wireless transmission technology that is enabling the future of IoT (Internet of Things).
Our IoT micro:bit LoRa Node allows you to create an inexpensive LoRa node, compatible with The Things Network, in conjunction with a BBC micro:bit or other single board computers. This board allows quicker prototyping as it has the LoRa stack on the chip. Add sensors, buttons and more to complete your LoRa network!
The IoT micro:bit LoRa Node uses the RAKWireless RAK811 LoRa node module which is based on Semtech SX1276 LoRa technology.
It's available in two different frequency variations:
- 868 MHz
- 915 MHz

Pair the micro:bit LoRa Node with our LoRa Gateway HAT
We also have a LoRa Gateway HAT designed for the Raspberry Pi that works with the micro:bit LoRa Nodes plus any other node we sell.
