RAK8211-NB iTracker is versatile development board aimed at aiding in quick prototypes using NB-IOT,The board includes a vast array of connectivity options(NB-IOT,BLE5.0 and GPS) and sensors like an accelerometer a light sensor and a barometric sensor.At the heart of the module is the venerable Nordic NRF52832 BLE processor. The NB-IOT connectivity is provided by the Quetel BC95-G module which Support Global band. the itracker module is Arduino friendly and can be programmed using the IDE.the board also provides SWD interface for programming the nrf52832 core. the combination of BLE and NB-IOT provides flexible low power consumption development along with myriad of application option ranging from telemetry to live tracking and environment sensing.
BLE module contains, more convenient to read and write data and parameters.
High degree of integration, can be directly added to existing products.
Interface is simple, mainly connected to the power supply can start working.
Small size, occupying the least structural space.
Combination of BLE+GPRS+GPS and three can effectively reduce the difficulty of development.
Significantly shorten the product development cycle.
