The Notecarriers

Notecarriers are companion project accelerator boards designed to make it easy to prototype and deploy IoT solutions with the Notecard.

The bridge between your host and the Notecard

Any MCU or SBC

Regardless of the microcontroller or single-board computer you’re using, there is a compatible Notecarrier for your project.

Fast prototyping (and deployments)

Each Notecarrier model provides an easy connectivity method to your existing IoT solution, whether it’s via header pins for prototyping or castellated edge connectors for embedding in a production solution.

Onboard cellular/Wi-Fi and GPS antennas

Most Notecarrier models come with onboard embedded cellular/Wi-Fi and GPS antennas, eliminating the need for external hookups.

Power options galore

Supporting AA batteries, LiPo, solar, and micro-USB, there are Notecarrier models that support virtually any type (and combination) of power supply.
