Ever since the IoT MCU RP2040 was announced by Raspberry, excitement was high. Finally, the first Pico breakout boards with the RP2040 MCU arrived and of course the first thing we did at RAK was to connect it to a LoRa® transceiver and add long range communication capabilities to the Pico.
WisBlock Core is the data processing center of WisBlock. WisBlock Core communication options include built-in Semtech LoRa®/LoRaWAN® technology, Cellular LTE-M/NB-IoT, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth modules offer LoRa®/LoRaWAN® communication.
If you are into cryptocurrency or decentralized applications, this WisBlock project is for you. This project shows the latest cryptocurrency value of three popular crypto coins. It tracks three cryptocurrencies: Bitcoin(BTC), Ethereum(ETH) and Helium(HNT).
Modular IoT hardware is the new and exciting way to create devices for any industry, something RAKwireless has already provided to its community of RAKStars.
While the WisBlock Core RAK4631 is built on the low power Nordic nRF52840 MCU and the low power LoRa® transceiver Semtech SX1262, having both of them active all the time is not ideal for battery-supplied solutions.
All great ideas come from a basic problem that no one has solved yet. Think about humanity's milestones, like electricity, clean water to be consumed, airplanes, and art masterpieces.
Let your office space work for you! Look at it as an investment, and not simply a piece of real estate. It has the potential to be so much more.
WisBlock is growing fast with more and more available IO and Sensor modules. But there might be reasons that you need a variation that is not (yet) available from RAK.
WisBlock is a new system that is entirely modular and easy-to-use. Because of this unique set-up, prototype-building and mass production can happen in a snap!
