XK70 Support materials

The XK70 is versatile and allows you to build sophisticated IoT projects using LoRa. 

One of the ways you can assemble the components of the kit

The kit provides enough hardware to build a base station and a remote station with GPS and a range of sensors on-board: perfect for remote sensing and high altitude projects. The relay opens up automation options and the RPi bridge allows you to add the xChips to your RPi.

This page has links to a range of materials that will show you how to do all sorts of different things with your kit. And check back - we’re adding more stuff all the time.

Projects that involve writing code:

The CC03 Cortex M0+ and CR02 LoRa with ATmega328P are also ‘cores’, which means you can flash code directly on to them using a variety of code editors.

Find out more about how to build a high altitude project on our GitHub repo.

Below is a list of other projects that you can implement using the xChips in the XK70 kit:

Make your own 3D printed enclosures:

Why not build an enclosure for your XK70 kit?

Use the XinaBox enclosure design app to design a bespoke enclosure for your kit that you can print on a 3D printer.

Lesson plans and experiments:

There is a growing body of experiments that you can use your XK70 to conduct:

Learn more about the xChips:

Whilst the whole is often greater than the sum of its parts, each of the xChips in the XK70 kit can be used separately in a number of different ways:

Going further with the XK70 and XinaBox:

Did you know that you can use the xChips in your XK70 kit with a BBC micro:bit too? Or a Beaglebone Black? All you need is the right bridge: check out the full range of development boards that have XinaBox bridges.

There are over 80 xChips in our range, with more being added all the time. Extend your kit with all sorts of capabilities and functions, including:
