Seeed announces two IoT development boards using u-blox technology
u‑blox has announced that its modules will be at the core of two new developer boards. The boards, which are designed and produced by Seeed, one of China’s largest distributors of microelectronic components for the international developer and maker communities, deliver cellular communication and positioning capabilities for a wide range of applications in the Internet of Things.
The first of the two development boards is a Raspberry Pi HAT designed to augment Raspberry Pi computers with cellular communication as well as cellular-based positioning services. The board will be released in multiple variants based on the u‑blox LARA‑R2 LTE Cat 1 module series.
“Seeed is among the top three designers and distributers of products that target makers. Based in China’s Shenzhen, also known as the “world capital of hardware innovation,” Seeed is ideally positioned to deliver a pioneering and affordable offering to both the domestic and the global maker community,” says Michael Ammann, Senior Principal at u‑blox.
“We are pleased to collaborate with u‑blox on the development of these two IoT boards. The fact that the mobile communication networks that these new products rely on are only now being rolled out could have been an obstacle,” says Ye Xiaobo, Product Manager at Seeed. “But thanks to good documentation and support, we are excited to give our customers the opportunity to develop new applications that benefit from the low power consumption and low-cost data plans they need.”
