Presenting the SiPy.

SiPy

With Sigfox, WiFi and BLE, the SiPy is the latest Pycom triple-bearer enabled module on the market today – the perfect enterprise grade IoT platform for your connected Things.

Featuring the latest Espressif ESP32 chipset the SiPy offers a perfect combination of power, friendliness and flexibility.

Create and connect your things everywhere. GO INVENT.

  • Powerful CPU, BLE and state of the art WiFi radio.
  • MicroPython enabled, use the Linux of IoT for 10x faster programming
  • 1KM WiFi Range
  • Fits in a standard universal Pycom Expansion board (with headers)
  • Ultra-low power usage: a fraction compared to other connected micro controllers

DISCLAIMER: the SiPy is being developed at the moment and is not yet certified on the Sigfox networks. Certification will take place prior to release in November 2016.

Introduction: The LoPy – Kickstarter Feature Video

LoPy was launched on Kickstarter in February 2016 and successfully funded with 240% of initial requirement. The LoPy is available for pre-order (see the Pycom webshop) and will ship to customers August 2016.

All the hardware specs are awesome, but it get’s better still. The LoPy is really easy to use, because we have written a powerful and intuitive IDE – the Pymakr to make it even easier for you to program in your browser and load straight to the LoPy.
