Announcing the Grove Starter Kit

Grove Starter Kit

We are delighted to announce that we’ve partnered with Seeed Studio to develop a new low-cost kit based around the LimeSDR Mini, Grove platform, and Raspberry Pi, that together provides everything you need to get started learning SDR basics and developing IoT applications.

The kit packages a LimeSDR Mini with antennas optimised for 433/868/915 MHz unlicensed bands, plus a GrovePi+ and selection of incredibly useful Grove sensors and outputs, many of which are supported by a Scratch extension. When combined with our ScratchRadio extension, this will allow the creation of simple and fun applications that integrate SDR capabilities and peripheral I/O.

Of course, use is not limited to Scratch and educational environments, and we’ll also be putting together examples that demonstrate how the kit can be used to develop applications that integrate with existing off-the-shelf systems, such as wireless thermostats and remote controls.
