LoRa USB Dongle with onboard 1.14’’ LCD & RP2040 Microcontroller



LoRa Plug & Play Open Source USB Dongle with onboard 1.14’’ LCD & RP2040 Microcontroller from Raspberry Pi. Plug it your PC or Pi & start Building LoRa Projects with MicroPython!


This cool RangePi Dongle is made by a UK based company called SB Components Ltd. . Thankfully they have provided proper micropython example code in GitHub to easily test and start using its full capabilities.


The LoRa Capability is enabled by a Semtech SX1262 LoRa transceiver.


Features:

1. Options for 433MHz, 868MHz, and 915MHz bands are available on purchase

2. The company has claimed a range of 5 KM (line of sight with included antenna)

3. Power: 22dBm

4. As it uses USB, No GPIO pins of Raspberry Pi are wasted

5. Two push button - Button A (Connect to GP13), Button B (Connect to GP14)

6. UART Interface Direct to LORA Module

7. Two GPIO Pins ( for input/output devices ) - GP4, GP5

8. Price: $56 (In my opinion this is reasonable given the software provided)
