Raspberry Pi Powered IoTFi 2G / 4G DIY IoT Kit Launched by Arushi in Collab with SB Components

Electronic Enthusiast Arushi, recently launched IoTFi the Raspberry Pi RP2040 based 2G/4G IoT DIY Kit for Electronic Enthusiast & Makers, In the Collaboration with SB Components.

SB Components is behind this project, The UK-based Hardware Development Company is also Raspberry Pi Authorized Reseller & Raspberry Pi Design Partner. SB Components helped several young makers to launch their products as they offer a Sponsorship program to the young makers to make their ideas into reality.”

IoTFi 2G / 4G DIY IoT Kit - Introduction

IoTFi is a complete DIY kit for the makers who want to build or explore 2G / 4G network, GSM /GPS, Basic electronics, and more. IoTFi comes with onboard SIM868/7600G, RP2040 powerful chip from Raspberry Pi & ESP-C3 – 32S Module is a Wi-Fi+ BLE combination of system-level chips (SoC), designed for various applications such as internet of things (IoT), mobile devices, wearable electronics, smart home, etc. IoTFi is loaded with powerful features. It is capable of transmitting and receiving messages to any device, calling GPS function, also IoTFi is well-equipped with a 3.5mm audio jack, a micro-SIM slot for SIM868/7600G, and an SD card slot with a Type C connector.

The well-equipped board has a high-resolution 1.14’’ LCD, an accelerometer, and a Bluetooth 2.0 module, which enhances the board with a user-friendly experience while running the applications.

This device is used for unlimited learning purposes with unique features and ease-to-go performance.

IoTFi can amplify itself with incredible specifications, and the package has one IoTFi board, GSM, and GPS antenna. To explore more, IoTFi can be coded with many programming languages, like Arduino, Python, and C/C++. 


It is accompanied by the main technical characteristics, many more to highlight, like the SIM868 module. This comprehensive Quad-Band GSM/GPRS module uses GNSS (GPS/GLONASS/BDS) satellite navigation technology. It features a lot of interfaces, including UART, USB2.0, GPIO, and so on, which also provides a lot of flexibility.

A small quad-band GSM/GPRS+GNSS module includes an LCC+LGA form factor with great interfaces. IoTFi devices work on low-power consumption with embedded TCP/UDP protocols and abundant software functions like DTMF, MMS, and MUX. Multi-constellation GNSS receiver support like GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou.

SIM7600G LTE CAT-1 Module

SIM7600G is one of the series of SIM7600 and a multi-band which is the LTE Cat 1 module that supports wireless communication modes of LTE-TDD/ LTE-FDD/HSPA+/GSM/GPRS/EDGE. SIM7600G supports a maximum of 10Mbps downlink rate up to 5Mbps uplink rate.

The SIM7600G integrates multiple satellites with high accuracy positioning GNSS systems, with multiple built-in network protocols, and support drivers for main operating systems (USB for Windows, Linux, Android, etc.).

The benefits of satellite navigation, or GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System), are all around us, and as communication quality improves, people's lives improve as well. It may be used to trace goods, stolen vehicles, and assets. Scientific research in meteorology, troposphere, and geodesy has improved as a result of satellite communication, enhancing the quality of the projects.

SIM7600G LTE CAT-1 Module Features

  • LCC+LGA package.
  • Downlink up to 10Mbps, Uplink up to 5Mbps.
  • The AT commands of SIM7600G are mostly compatible with SIM7500/SIM7600 Series modules
  • Supply voltage range: 3.4V ~ 4.2V, Typ: 3.8V
  • Control Via AT Commands
  • Operation temperature: -40°C to +85°C
  • Dimensions: 30.0*30.0*2.9mm
  • Weight: 5.7g
