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.
Just add your own Raspberry Pi, power supply, and microSD card!
We’re now taking orders for the Grove Starter Kit. If you’ve already placed an order and want to change it to the Grove Starter Kit, please place a new order that includes the Grove Starter Kit and include a note in the order comments field letting us know the previous order number to replace. Crowd Supply will be in touch within two business days to confirm your previous order has been canceled and refunded. You can also see the status of your orders by logging in to your Crowd Supply account.
