Product description: SparkFun LoRa Thing Plus - expLoRaBLE - compatible with Arduino - SparkFun WRL-17506

The SparkFun expLoRaBLE board has the same pin spacing as the Feather board with the Northern Mechatronics NM180100 chip. The board also features an Ambiq Apollo3 microcontroller and a Semtech SX1262 LoRa transceiver. Thing Plus is an integrated LoRa module working both in 868 MHz and 915 MHz band, it also features Bluetooth Low Energy 5.0 communication. The board is also equipped with Qwiic I2C interface connector, JST Li-Pol battery connector and USB type C connector for programming. The module is also equipped with battery charging circuit through JST connectors with maximum current 500 mA. The NM180100 SiP chip also contains a Semtech SX1262 LoRa chip paired with an Apollo3 chip, which is also used in the SparkFun Artemis module. The board is compatible with Arduino IDE via Apollo3 Arduino core. With Bluetooth Low Energy and LoRa communication, the expLoRaBLE board will be able to work as a LoRa node with Bluetooth communication. The board is also equipped with a U.FL antenna connector, which allows you to extend the range of your wireless network by adding an antenna.

The manufacturer has prepared a user guide with sample programs.
