Build GPS-Based IoT Projects with Seeed Studio’s Wio Tracker, Now at Mouser

 

August 18, 2017Mouser Electronics, Inc., the authorized global distributor with the newest semiconductors and electronic components, is now stocking the Wio Tracker from Seeed Studio. The Wireless Input Output (Wio) Tracker is an open source gateway that allows for faster GPS solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT) by tracking nearly any moving thing and uploading that data wirelessly.

The Seeed Studio Wio Tracker, available from Mouser Electronics, is an Arduino-compatible development board that integrates Bluetooth® 3.0 and GPRS into a single board for quickly and easily developing location-tracking solutions. The GPRS feature provides a moderate bandwidth which allows immediate interaction between the user and device.

 

The Wio Tracker is based on the low-power Microchip SAM D21G ARM® Cortex®-M0+ microcontroller with 256 Kbytes of flash and 32 Kbytes of SRAM. The board features a space-saving Nano SIM/microSD socket, as well as six user-friendly Seeed Grove connections that enable any combination of Grove system sensors and actuators, which can simplify the prototyping and development phase. For added speed and flexibility, the Wio Tracker features 99 GNSS receiver channels for quicker lock times. The board also offers a GNSS low power (GLP) mode, which can reduce power consumption by up to 40 percent.
