The RP2040 Raspberry Pi Pico Meets LoRa

 The Raspberry Pi Foundation's "Pico" board, which uses the RP2040 microprocessor, is the newest compact, fast, and adaptable Arduino Nano board. The board may be programmed using MicroPython and C/C++, as you may know. In this post, we'll go over everything you need to know about the Raspberry Pi Pico Lora Expansion.

The RP2040 Raspberry Pi Pico Meets LoRa

Raspberry Pi Pico LoRa™ Expansion is a low-power data transmission board that includes an onboard CH340 USB TO UART converter, Voltage Level Translator (74HC125V), E22-900T22S/E22-400T22S SMA antenna connector that covers the 868MHz/433MHz frequency bands, Onboard 1.14" LCD, IPEX antenna connector, and LoRa™ Spread Spectrum Modulation technology with auto multi-level repeating. Pico LoRa™ Expansion can now be purchased on SB Components with two different frequency 868MHz/433MHz.

Based on the SEMTECH SX1262, the E22-900T22S1B is a wireless serial port module (UART). It works in the frequency range of 850.125MHz to 930.125MHz and has numerous transmission modes. It uses the latest LoRa spread spectrum technology, which allows for longer transmission distances, reduced power consumption, and a smaller footprint than the SX1278, as well as WOR, wireless configuration, carrier sense, and relay networking.
