SIM7000 Shield Live on Indiegogo!

hat's up guys!

It's midnight here and I just launched the Indiegogo campaign for my shield. Check it out here and be sure to share the link on social media because every view counts for me! Contributions are also greatly appreciated and will help me continue my efforts. I plan on fulfilling all orders regardless of how much I raise and I have everything ready to go with a contract manufacturer in the US.

Anyway, thanks for your support and I hope this will positively benefit the community!

Tim SIM Cards!

What's up guys!

Today I chatted with developers Ben Strahan and Chris Gammell and I'm super excited to tell you that for my Indiegogo campaign launching on Feb 1st all units delivered after the campaign will include a free Hologram SIM card and a promo code for $40 of free Hologram store credit exclusively for the campaign! Oh, and the price of the kits will be $89 (USD) instead of the $99 I originally stated!

If you haven't already, check out Hologram's site and developer plan because they have some really cool deals. All my tutorials use their SIM card because it's global, has 1MB free data per month, and super easy to use with a full API documentation and support so I definitely recommend it! 

As a quick update on my progress on producing the shields, I'm working with a contract manufacturer in the US to produce more boards for the Indiegogo campaign pre-orders. Unfortunately there won't be any early-bird units available at the start of the campaign because they're all sold out! That's good news and bad news for some of you waiting for one out there, but I'll attempt to console you by saying that I might even start production before the campaign ends if I see enough demand, so please share to anyone you think might be interested!

Anyway, it's been a great ride and let's make this campaign even more awesome to spread the love of LTE and IoT!  <3


Announcing SIM7000 LTE/NB-IoT Shield on Indiegogo!

Hi everyone, I'm excited to announce that I will be launching the Indiegogo campaign for the SIM7000 LTE/NB-IoT shield on 1 February 2018 so mark your calendars! You can check out the pre-campaign page here and be sure to share it with your friends!

Early-bird orders will ship out immediately but I will have limited supplies on a first-come-first-served basis. The price for any version of the shield will be $99 (USD).

Looking forward to the new year and stay warm!

NB-IoT Shield for Arduino Underway!

I'm currently in the process of developing a completely open-source LTE CAT-M/NB-IoT shield for Arduino and putting together a comprehensive wiki on how to get started! The shield can be painlessly adapted to NB-IoT for many other countries and is one of the first NB-IoT Arduino shields to ever be released (if not the first *open-source* one) so don't miss out!

Check out my project on!

Introducing: Solid-State Sidekick

The Sidekick Relay Module is a high-power solid-state relay module that allows users to control almost any AC appliance simply by plugging in the controlled appliance! Because its low control voltage the Sidekick is the perfect companion for any 3.3V or 5V microcontroller and using it in conjunction with the Reflowduino Basic forms the perfect DIY reflow oven control kit!

Introducing: Reflowduino

Reflowduino is a completely open-source, Arduino-compatible reflow oven controller that allows practically anyone to build their own reflow oven! Learn more about Reflowduino on the official Github page and stay tuned for announcements on an upcoming Indiegogo campaign!
