Makers and developers involved in Internet of Things projects may be interested in a new open source breakout board called the Sigfox, which has been specifically created to send data to Azure IoT. The project published to the Hackster.io website shows the process of creating the Internet of Things breakout board from scratch to soldering the Sigfox modem from Wisol then sending data to Azure IoT Hub.
Using a Raspberry Pi mini PC the project features a Wisol Sigfox modem WSSFM10R2AT and full instructions have been published to the Hackster.io website for your viewing pleasure, inspiration and enable you to build your very own.
“The objective of this project is to assemble a PCB board that can use a Sigfox modem from Wisol company. Sigfox is an LPWAN (Low power wide area network) design for IoT solutions, many companies assembly modem to talk with this network, but the development kits are expensive. Because of that, we design an open source PCB to soldering the Wisol Sigfox modem, and we did an end-to-end to test if it was working correctly.”
