What Icarus is good at

GPS and Cellular data on the go

Equipped with the new nRF9160 modem from Nordic Semiconductor, the Icarus board integrates GPS and Cellular data (LTE-M / NB-IoT) all in one.

3 Months of Free LTE-M & NB-IoT Data

The Icarus includes an eSIM with 10MB of free data for 3 months, so you can start testing your prototype immediately (*only in supported countries). After your free trial ends you can choose to get a subscription on actinius.io or use your own nano SIM!

Use the Icarus anywhere, anytime

Power comes in three: the Icarus board has input for a LiPo/Li-Ion battery (with charger!), USB, and Solar Panel input so that you can use the Icarus anywhere and anytime.

FeatherWing Form Factor Compatible

You can install extra components to the extension pins, easily of course. Don’t forget! Icarus is form factor compatible with Adafruit Featherwing also.
