The SparkFun Blues Wireless MicroMod Starter Kit is a comprehensive package that provides everything you need to get started with the Notecarrier Cellular Function Board. The kit includes the latest versions of the MicroMod MainBoard (V2.1) and STM32 Processor Board (V2.0), as well as a BMA400 Qwiic Triple Axis Accelerometer Breakout. All necessary cables and antennas are included for a hassle-free setup and immediate use.
The centerpiece of this kit is the SparkFun Notecarrier Cellular Function Board, which incorporates a cellular modem into the MicroMod ecosystem with the Notecard - NOTE-NBGL-500 from Blues Wireless. This Notecard module is unique as it comes with a built-in SIM card, a 10-year subscription, and 500MB of data included in the price. It also features integrated cellular, SIM, onboard GPS, and a 3-axis accelerometer with an on-chip temperature sensor.
The kit is controlled by the SparkFun MicroMod STM32 Processor Board, which features an ARM® Cortex®-M4 32-bit RISC core. The STM32 is a powerful and economical microcontroller, and its integration into the MicroMod Carrier Board makes the Blues Wireless MicroMod Starter Kit a highly advantageous tool for your projects.
The kit also includes the SparkFun Qwiic BMA400 Triple Axis Accelerometer Breakout, a 3-axis acceleration sensor designed for ultra-low-power applications. This sensor is particularly useful in wearable and smart home applications, with the ability to distinguish between critical situations and false signals, thus avoiding false alarms.
Finally, the MicroMod Main Board - Single is a specialized carrier board that allows you to interface a MicroMod Processor Board with a single MicroMod Function Board. With the M.2 MicroMod connector, connecting your Processor and Function Boards is as simple as matching up the key on your board's beveled edge connector to the key on the M.2 connector and securing the boards with screws.
The MicroMod is a modular interface ecosystem that connects a microcontroller “processor board” to various “carrier board” peripherals. The MicroMod standard, utilizing the M.2 standard, is designed to easily swap out processors and function boards on the fly.
The SparkFun Qwiic Connect System is an ecosystem of I2C sensors, actuators, shields, and cables that make prototyping faster and less prone to error. All Qwiic-enabled boards use a common 1mm pitch, 4-pin JST connector, which reduces the amount of required PCB space and ensures correct connections with its polarized design.
