PicoIoTSOM is all you need to develop a cellular connectivity, GNSS, WiFi, and Bluetooth application. It is based on the ultra-compact LTE cat M1/cat NB2 BG77 module and the generic WiFi+BLE ESP32-WROOM-32D 32-bit Microcontroller. This 2.5”x3” board comes with all needed antennas on-board including GNSS low-noise amplifier front-end with integrated pre and post SAW filters and a GNSS ceramic antenna, LTE PIFA, WiFi, and BLE antennas. External active and passive GNSS antennas can be used via the u.FL connector. Also, an external LTE antenna can be used via a u.FL connector. The BG77 is an ultra-compact LPWA module supporting LTE Cat M1, LTE Cat NB1/NB2 and integrated GNSS. It is fully compliant with 3GPP Rel-14 specification and provides maximum data rates of 588 kbps downlink and 1119 kbps uplink. It features ultra-low power consumption by leveraging the integrated RAM/flash as well as the ARM Cortex A7 processor supporting ThreadX, achieving up to 70% reduction in PSM leakage and 85% reduction in eDRX current consumption compared to its predecessor. The ESP32 is a low power and a peripheral rich Xtensa dual-core 32-bit LX6 microcontroller with WiFi and dual-mode Bluetooth. PicoIoTSOM also comes with an on-board Accelerometer and a vibrator.
