WisTrio LORA Tracker by RAK Wireless is based on the RK5205


WisTrio LORA Tracker by RAK Wireless is based on the RK5205 chipset. It’s a LoRaWAN Module that has extremely low power consumption device supports multiple global bands, contains a variety of onboard sensors, offers standard IO (I2C, GPIO, UART and ADC) and several antenna options (SMA & IPEX). All of this on the 96Boards IoT Edition standard footprint!

We have come along different LoRa GPS tracker boards such as Rak Wireless RAK811 etc, but if for some reason, you’d also like your board to comply with 96Boards IoT Edition form factor, Rak Wireless just launched Wistrio LoRa Tracker RK5205 for $49.50 plus shipping on Aliexpress and Amazon.
