Qoitech Teams Up with Thales and Releases Low Power 5G NB-IoT Developer Starter Kit

October 5, 2020 Tiera Oliver

Qoitech and Thales have just released the result of their latest cooperation, the 5G NB-IoT Low-Power Cellular Developer Starter Kit for cellular LPWAN technologies.

Assessing application parameters, calculating battery lifetime, and estimating performance across a range of environmental and network dynamics may be just a few of the challenges ahead of everyone working with low-power devices. Qoitech teamed up with Thales to tackle these challenges and provide developers with insights on low power performances of the NB-IoT and LTE-M technologies. They've combined Thales' ENS22-E NB-IOT dev kit with their Otii Arc, added suitable accessories, and created the 5G NB-IoT Low-Power Cellular Developer Starter Kit, which is available at Digi-Key.

Otii Arc's functionality as a power analyzer, power supply, and log sync, all-in one, complements Thales' DevKit to suitably evaluate and prototype narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) connectivity and its energy consumption. The combination of both will allow developers to test prototypes in a laboratory environment. Sensors, actuators, or any other additional interfaces are connected to external applications via pin headers before conducting current and voltage measurements in real-time, enabling analysis of an energy profile synced to device UART logs.
