About the Soracom LTE-M IoT Starter Kit

Arduino MKR NB 1500, a programmable controller board with common interfaces and LTE-M modem, is a quick way to start your IoT application. Bundled with antenna and Soracom IoT SIM, this is a minimum kit to get your Arduino board online.

Please start from our sample projects to get smoothly connected and start leveraging SORACOM services.

Included in the kit

  • Arduino MKR GSM 1500 – a programmable controller board with common interfaces and LTE-M modem
  • Dipole Antenna – antenna supporting LTE-M bands with U.FL connector for directly attaching on Arduino MKR GSM 1400
  • Soracom IoT SIM – gives you global connectivity managed on SORACOM platform, featuring native cloud integration, private networking and more
  • Grove Sensors Essential Kit – Seven different sensors for your IoT project with cloud-ready libraries and sample code. Includes a button, buzzer, GPS module, temperature sensor, and magnetic switch.
  • $20 connectivity coupon – so that you can test your prototype and send a good volume of data to the cloud without incurring additional fees

Kit Features

  • Built-in LTE-M modem & SORACOM IoT SIM for global connectivity
  • Proven to work with many SORACOM platform services and sample codes provided for quick start
  • Leverage various development environment offered by Arduino for fast prototyping

Arduino MKR GSM 1500 features

  • Low Power – based on low-power ARM Cortex-M0 microcontroller with low-power U-Blox SARA-U201 for LTE-M connectivity
  • Battery Support – can be operated on a Li-Po battery (NOT INCLUDED IN THE KIT) as well as USB power supply. Li-Po charger circuitry buit-in for charging the battery while operating on USB or external power source
  • Easy Development – Exploit Arduino IDE and web editor and sample codes / libraries built by Arduino community worldwide
