Emcraft Thingy-9151-Lite Platform


The Emcraft Thingy-9151-Lite is a hardware and software platform that is designed to streamline development of LTE modem, cellular IoT and global connectivity applications. The platform is based on the following Nordic Semiconductor SiP (System-in-Package) devices and components, which, combined together, provide a highly-efficient and customisable hardware and software platform:

  • nRF9151 for LTE-M/NB-IoT and DECT NR+ modem, and GNSS, is the host processor managing the overall application.
  • nRF5340 for Bluetooth LE, Bluetooth mesh, NFC, Thread and Zigbee, is the sub-ordinate, optional processor enabling BT and USB connectivity.
  • PM1300 is the Power Management IC, enabling efficient battery charging, low-power operation and longer run times.
