The HopeRF modules are a bit difficult to solder up by hand, so we created this handy breakout. In addition, it features two decoupling capacitors, and an SMA jack for easy connection to an antenna or amplifier.
We offer breakouts for our 144MHz, 440MHz and 915MHz HopeRF LoRa modules. You can also use the 915MHz for the European 868MHz network if you wish.
The breakout is breadboard compatible and is compatible with most popular LoRa libraries, such as RadioHead.
