Features at a glance

The Pico-SIM7080G-Cat-M/NB-IoT is an NB-IoT (NarrowBand-Internet of Things), Cat-M (aka eMTC, enhanced Machine Type Communication), and GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) module designed for Raspberry Pi Pico. It supports multiple NB-IoT frequency band, can be controlled via serial AT commands, and supports communication protocols like HTTP/MQTT/LWM2M/COAP, etc. Due to the advantages of low delay, low power, low cost, and wide coverage, it is the ideal choice for IoT applications such as intelligent instruments, asset tracking, remote monitoring, and so on.

  • Standard Raspberry Pi Pico header, supports Raspberry Pi Pico series boards
  • UART communication, serial AT commands control
  • Communication protocol support: TCP/UDP/HTTP/HTTPS/TLS/DTLS/PING/LWM2M/COAP/MQTT...
  • GNSS positioning support: GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, and Galileo
  • Integrates 3.7V Li-po battery connector and recharge circuit, allows being powered from external rechargeable Li-po battery, or recharging it in turn
