Raspberry Pi 3 Model B

This is the third generation of Raspberry Pi. It has a faster 64bits processor than its predecessors, includes 1GB RAM, wireless connectivity (WiFi and BLE) and keeps the pinout of the previous models, so you can use any shield or board designed for it.
Check below the product features and specifications.

The idea behind the Raspberry Pi to Arduino shields connection bridge is to allow to use any of the shields, boards and modules designed for Arduino in Raspberry Pi.

It includes also the possibility of connecting digital and analog sensors, using the same pinout of Arduino but with the power and capabilities of Raspberry.

Libelium's LoRa module works in both 868 and 900 MHz ISM bands, which makes it suitable for virtually any country. Those frequency bands are lower than the popular 2.4 GHz band, so path loss attenuation is better in LoRa. In addition, 868 and 900 MHz are bands with much fewer interference than the highly populated 2.4 GHz band.

Besides, these low frequencies provide great penetration in possible materials (brick walls, trees, concrete), so these bands get less loss in the presence of obstacles than higher bands.

The Arduino XBee shield allows your Arduino board to communicate wirelessly using Zigbee. It was developed in collaboration with Arduino. This documentation describes the use of the shield with the XBee module.

It is also compatible with Raspberry Pi using the Raspberry Pi to Arduino shields connection bridge.

The usage of the Radiation Sensor Board board along with the affordable and easy to use Arduino platform helps people to get radiation values from specific places.

The radiation board has two main parts, the power circuit and the signal circuit.

The 3G shield for Arduino and Raspberry Pi enables the connectivity to high speed WCDMA cellular networks in order to make possible the creation of the next level of worldwide interactivity projects inside the new ""Internet of Things"" era.
