SIMCON SIM7020 based NB-Iot development board / Arduino Compatible shield


What is NB-Iot ???

NB-Iot (Narrow Band-Internet of Things) is LPWA (low power wide area) technology which is developed for enabling a wide range of new IoT devices and services. A significant improvement of the power consumption on user devices , system capacity and spectrum efficiency are to be catered by NB-Iot. It is proven that a battery life of more than 10 years can be supported for a wide range of use cases. With the improvements of new physical layer signals and layers, the demanding requirement of extended coverage in rural and deep indoors can be met while keeping the devices complexity ultra low.


The SIM7020C is a Nb-IoT module with multiple bands supported and also its in SMT type. Witha set of rich interfaces including UART,GPIO etc. , SIM7020 has a strong extension capability nad much flexibility and ease of integration for customers applications. In addition SIM7020 is compatible with SIM800C which is having the capability of minimizing the investments of customers and minimizing the development time.


ANIMO 7020C is a development board cum a shield based on SIMCON SIM7020C. With a wide range of features and the Arduino friendly form factor plues design , ANIMO 7020C will be the ultimate solution for anyone who is interested in NB-IoT to develop their applications.
