Rickta59
did you plan on using them as a dongle with another mcu?
or standalone?
ike
with ceramic antenna and lots of gpios
standalone
Rickta59
with the ardunio thing?
or their sdk
ike
no point of hooking 8/16 bit mcu to control 32bit cpu
maybe barebone sdk
Rickta59
why haven't you done anything with them?
ike
nop
they have sh*tty little pins
that are not easy to breadboard
I thinking about GPS tracker
Rickta59
yeah i have one of those and burned off the connector * one side barely had any copper
ike
with wifi, gsm, APRS and 434MHz reporting and location finding
so it can locate coordinates with GPS, wifi mac addres and cell tower GSM station
and then it can report with GSM, open wifi networks, 144.8MHz APRS and 434ISM band module
