NOTE: Purchasing the L04 means you are pre-ordering ready for shipment late Q4 2018

NOTE: If buying +250 units, 8-10 weeks lead time applies.

The L04 is the LoPy4 OEM module. It works just like the LoPy4 but we’ve trimmed a few bits to make it super easy to integrate. Quadruple network module: WiFi, Bluetooth, LoRa and Sigfox.

Not included in L04

  • Voltage regulator
  • Reverse power supply protection
  • Antenna switch
  • SMD antenna
  • u.fl connectors
  • Reset switch
  • LED
  • Headers
  • A few passive components

You will be given full technical support to design-in / integrate the module onto your product PCB.

Everything else is the same and you can load the same applications on your L04 and on your LoPy4. Supplied in high volume assembly format (with SMT pads).

Also, there’s no packaging to unwrap and do away with. The module can be supplied and used straight from its hermetically sealed trays. The L04 is both CE, FCC, IC and RCM certified.

Contact us on sales@pycom.io for more details.

NOTE: The L04 includes 1-year of Sigfox connectivity.

NOTE: If you are purchasing the L04 and wish to connect via USB to your computer, you will also need to purchase the OEM Reference Board and either the Expansion Board 3.0, Pysense or Pytrack.
