The Arduino MKR WAN 1310 developer board can bring LoRa connectivity to projects without requiring continuous mains power. The board is just 67.6 x 25.0 mm and integrates an ARM Cortex M0+ processor. The MKR WAN 1310 is available to order now for €33 (~US$37).
Alex Alderson,

The 67.6 x 25.0 mm board weights 32 g, and is equipped with a Microchip Atmel SAMD21 SoC that integrates an ARM Cortex M0+ processor. The MKR WAN 1310 is more efficient than its predecessors, thanks to its improved charging and power architectures. Arduino claims that the board consumes 104 uA, allowing it to be operated for a while on batteries, for example.

Arduino has equipped the board with 2 MB of flash memory, while sensors and actuators can be connected via numerous GPIO pins. The board also comes with an ECC508 Crypto-Chip, which offers a secure place on which to store login details, among other data. The main selling point of the MRK WAN 1310 is its LoRa capabilities, with it able to utilise the LoRa wireless protocol and work on LoRaWAN networks. The board works with Android Create too.

The MKR WAN 1310 is available from €33 (~US$37) on the Arduino store. Alternatives with WiFi and LoRa connectivity cost around €10 (~US$11) less, though.
