We are glad to announce that the Whitecat ESP32 N1 board is available. The Whitecat ESP32 N1 integrates an ESP32 MCU and a LoRa WAN transceiver in one board. The N1 is an ideal platform for deploy real IOT use cases, in both outdoor and indoor environments, and it's compatible with Lua RTOS and any esp-idf based solution.

Best regards,

Lua RTOS / Whitecat team

N1 board mounts a Hoperf RFM95W module, suitable for work in the 868 Mhz (EU)/915 Mhz (USA) band. Now Lua RTOS implements the LMIC stack, available only for EU / USA. The Lua RTOS team are working for add support for others LoRa WAN stacks that will allow to use LoRa in other locations.

All Hoperf LoRa modules RFM95W, RFM96W and RFM98W comes with the RF96 chip that works in the 137 Mhz to 1026 Mhz range. The difference between modules are basically only the network matching.

RF96 is compatible with sx1276.

The board looks interesting, but it will be hard to justify the price.
Not to mention many boards for less than US$ 10 - 15, Pycom's LoPy is €29.95 compared to ESP32 N1 board price of €40.
And the new FiPy will be €49 with included LTE CAT M1 / NB1, LoRa and 4MB RAM.

Anyhow, I wish you much success with the board.

thank you.
Where is the board manufactured?
But that does not have to mean anything, which drives the price so high,
how much layer has it?

the board it self looks good.
i see the same, the price is slightly above average.

i see this price like you boris, so
It had to come as soon as it will come:
think mid year..

LTE CAT M1 / NB1, LoRa and 4MB RAM


.. comes out next time for far below under the spoted FiPy price from the german market too and have at least 1 brand new must2have technology for IoT 4.0 and at least 2 other usefull gimmicks more .. i read in the "inhouse" newspaper from here, that we go perhabs kickstarter next time "too" in two things :mrgreen: I will be surprised what comes.

best wishes

Note
* Cat M1 and Cat NB1 are the new narrowband categories in Release 13 of the 3GPP LTE standard, recently published, that specifically defines LTE for use in low data rate and low power IoT and M2M applications. Two new narrowband categories have been defined: 1) Category M1, also known as LTE-M and Cat M, delivers about 1 Mbps maximum in a 1.4 MHz channel, and Category NB1, also known as narrowband IoT, or NB-IoT, delivers about 40 kbps in a 200 kHz channel.
