Dev kit provides certified LTE connectivity for IoT applications
AVNET Monarch Go Pi HAT development kit helps product engineers and network developers enable simple, cost-effective LTE connectivity for IoT solutions. Utilizing the Monarch Go LTE-M modem component from Sequans, solution is suitable for use in business-critical applications, including asset tracking and remote monitoring. With capabilities beyond a traditional cellular module, dev kit includes the LTE antenna and is pre-certified for end-customer use on the Verizon network, allowing engineers to significantly reduce lab testing and development time. By combining Raspberry Pi HAT-capable single-board computers with Monarch Go, dev kit provides lower cost of ownership and improved speed to market to develop a cellular IoT-connected device. Dev kit can operate in two modes for added development flexibility, either in conjunction with a single-board computer or in stand-alone mode, leveraging a micro USB interface. It also includes a shuttle click expansion connector to enable 3.3V I/O I2C, SPI, UART and GPIO-based click modules from MikroElektronika. This expansion connector provides engineers with access to a large array of click module offerings, which can be used to prototype various LTE-based applications.
