nRF9160 Feather a la Hackster Launch
We're not mad if you skipped ahead to this part because we would have too. The Nordic nRF9160 is a tiny cellular SiP that is on many to-do lists to explore for creating ultra-compact and always-connected devices such as asset trackers. Lore has it that more than a few ex-Nokia engineers were hired by Nordic to pull off this engineering marvel, and truly marvelous it is. It packs CAT-M1 LTE cellular, NB-IoT, and GPS into a tiny package without breaking the bank or your mechanical constraint. Jared Wolff of Circuit Dojo put a lot of revision, testing, and even FCC certification planning into this design so trust that it will be a ready-to-rock experience on arrival with its included Hologram Hyper global-ready SIM. This certified open source system is over $50 cheaper than the incumbent dev kit for the '9160 and meets the Adafruit Feather form factor spec so you can integrate it with a multitude of Ada gear. This is the second campaign via our Launch collab with Hackster so stay connected for what's next but in the mean time, hit the "Make this Launch" button below to back a unit or 2 so we can keep bringing you high quality hardware from star developers.
