eRIC Nitro
There is something magical in being able to transmit and receive data through the air (“aether”) without wires and the LPRS eRIC module [2] makes it very easy. Having a pre-assembled wireless Arduino board shouild tick all design boxes. It reduces the time to test out an idea and for IoT projects it’s a perfect fit.

Extra info / Update
• LPRS eRIC module with a subset of eRIC signals brought out to user accessible pads on the PCB
• PCB form factor similar to Arduino Pro Mini
• Small size: 2.5 x 5.5 cm
• ATmega328 processor with Arduino bootloader with direct serial connection to eRIC module
• 8-MHz operation
• On-board 3.3-V regulator providing power to eRIC module and ATmega328 device
• Header for FTDI friend connector, to allow ATmega328 programming from Arduino IDE and also to provide serial communication interface
• Quickly deployable as a battery-powered low-power programmable RF node
• Total current consumption in low power mode <100 µA
• Open source, open hardware design
Download the BOM list
The BOM (Bill of Materials) is the technically exhaustive listing of parts and other hardware items used to produce the working and tested prototype of any Elektor Labs project. The BOM file contains deeper information than the Component List published for the same project in Elektor Magazine. If required the BOM gets updated directly by our lab engineers. As a reader, you can download the list here.
