SBC Components Ltd, manufacturer raspberry pie and Raspberry Pipeco Accessories launched Kickstarter activities Create a 2G GPS and GPRS expansion board Raspberry Pipeco Microcontroller. The event was fully funded within 30 minutes!
We recently saw one Pi in mobile phones, So seeing the phone in the Pi is a good upside-down.The board is called Raspberry Pi Pico 2G Expansion, from a Raspberry Pi approved design partner SB Components Co., Ltd.It aims to expand the micro board in a fully wireless manner, adding Bluetooth 3.0 and GPS/GLONASS/BDS satellite navigation and GSM/GPRS in the 850/900/1800/1900MHz frequency band. It can make calls and send SMS and MMS via the SIM card inserted into the expansion board.
The Pico itself pales in comparison to its new expansion board. It plugs into a special slot that also disconnects the GPIO pins. The 1.14-inch LCD provides feedback on what is happening, but the board is mainly used for use with other devices via Bluetooth, UART, GPIO, and USB interfaces.
The extension target for 4G connectivity is 1,000 pounds (1,373 U.S. dollars) higher than the original 500 pounds (686 U.S. dollars) to reach 10,000 pounds (13,729 U.S. dollars). As we write this article, there are still 30 days to get there. Please keep in mind that crowdfunding projects do not guarantee receipt of finished products. Supporting crowdfunding projects is similar to investing, you believe in the project and hope it succeeds. You are not buying a retail product.
