The Blues Starter Kit contains everything you need to start building connected solutions with the Notecard and Notehub.io. Start with LTE Cat-1 cellular or Wi-Fi and build your first MCU-powered app with the Notecarrier F and Swan. Or connect the Notecard to a Raspberry Pi or Pi-compatible SBC using the included Pi Hat.

 

Kit Contents: 

  • LTE Cat-1 EMEA Notecard
  • Wi-Fi Notecard
  • Notecarrier F
  • Swan 3.0
  • Notecarrier Pi Hat
  • Molex flexible dual Wi-Fi and Cellular Antenna

 

LTE Cat-1 Notecard – EMEA is designed to be used in the EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Africa) regions and uses Quectel EG91-EX modem which connects to LTE Cat-1 / WCDMA / GSM networks.

LTE Cat-1 Specs:

  • Integrated Quectel cellular modem.
  • Secure element with a factory-installed ECC P-384 certificate provisioned at chip manufacture.
  • Integrated GPS and Accelerometer.
  • Designed operate on battery power, be "always-on" to maintain time & location, while typically drawing less than 8µA, when idle.
  • Bundled with 10-years and 500MB of cellular data. No cellular subscriptions, SIM fees or monthly minimums apply.
  • PTCRB Certified Module.

 

Wi-Fi Notecard Specs:

  • Integrated Silicon Labs Wi-Fi Transceiver.
  • Secure element with a factory-installed ECC P-384 certificate provisioned at chip manufacture.
  • Designed to operate on battery power, be "always-on" to maintain time & location, while typically drawing less than 8µA, when idle.
  • Battery-powered Wi-Fi without the complexity of managing connections, queues, or storage.
  • Utilizes an extremely thin cloud infrastructure that directly routes your data to where it belongs: AWS, Azure, GCS, or your own cloud.
  • Data routing and simple "no code/low code" visual data stream analysis through Notehub.io (SaaS), or host and integrate Notehub functionality into your own app (OSS).

 

Notecarrier F is a companion development board designed for quick prototyping with Adafruit Feather-based microcontrollers. It can be used with any Feather-compatible device and includes Qwiic ports for connecting I2C peripherals.

Notecarrier F Specs:

  • Adafruit Feather compatible header socket.
  • Breadboard compatible Notecard 13-pin header.
  • Breadboard compatible 24-pin Adafruit Feather breakout header.
  • Notecard edge connector socket and mounting screw receptacle.
  • Micro-USB port to power Notecarrier and provide a USB Serial command interface to Notecard.
  • External Nano-SIM slot for additional carrier connectivity.
  • 2 Qwiic/StemmaQT I2C ports for attaching external peripherals to your project.
  • JST PH connector for a LiPo battery.
  • JST PH connector for a solar panel.
  • JST PH connector for V+
  • JST SH 3.3V I2C connector.
  • Battery slide switch to disconnect battery when not in use.
  • Momentary button connected to Feather B0 pin.
  • Front and back pin labels 

  

Swan is a low-cost, embeddable STM32L4-based microcontroller designed to accelerate the development and deployment of battery-powered IoT solutions. It is especially useful for applications requiring large memory or a high degree of I/O expandability at an affordable cost, such as edge inferencing and remote monitoring.

Swan 3.0 Specs:

  • Ultra low-power Arm Cortex-M4 core clocked at 120Mhz
  • STM32L4R5-based microcontroller
  • 2MB of flash and 640KB of RAM
  • Castellated-edge access to 55 GPIO ports including:
    • 8 analog
    • 16 digital
    • 4x I2C, 3x SPI
    • USB OTG full speed
    • 1x 14-channel DMA
    • tRNG
    • 12-bit ADC, 2 x 12-bit DAC
    • low-power RTC, and CRC calculation peripherals
  • Qwiic connector
  • Outboard DFU Support

 

Notecarrier-Pi Hat is designed for drop-in development with a Raspberry Pi or compatible Single Board Computer. It includes a pre-soldered female 40-pin header connector for plugging directly into the Raspberry Pi, and a 40-pin connector on top for stacking other Pi “hats” and devices. It also includes a single Grove I2C port for attaching external peripherals to your project.

Notecarrier Pi Hat Specs:

  • M.2 Key E edge connector port and screw-down port for Notecard.
  • 1 Grove I2C port for attaching external peripherals to your project.
  • Pre-soldered female 40-pin header connector for plugging directly into a Pi or another Pi hat.
  • Pre-soldered male 40-pin header connector for stacking additional Pi hats.
  • Slot for external Micro SIM for external carrier connectivity.

     

    Molex Antenna has a supported frequency range of 698 MHz to 3.8 GHz and a u.FL terminator, this Molex Flexible antenna is the quickest way to get your Cellular or Wi-FI Notecard online.
