Avnet Silica NB-IoT Sensor Shield

Low Power WAN connectivity for the Visible Things IoT Kit with Renesas Synergy™

The Avnet Silica NB-IoT Sensor Shield is a Cat M1 and NB-IoT board providing Arduino pinout connectors and Pmod connectors. The Arduino compatibility provides ultimate flexibility, leveraging on a huge ecosystem of compatible boards. Via the Pmod connector the board can be connected to our Visible Things IoT platform based on Renesas Synergy™ MCU.

The shield is based on Quectel BG96, a low power module supporting Cat M1, Cat NB1 and EGPRS fallback. GNSS is supported. 

With AT commands Avnet Silica's NB-IoT Sensor Shield is easy to program and supports mbed OS for quick development and leveraging on free stacks like SSL, MQTT, COAP etc.
