Mouser Electronics is now stocking the Wio Tracker from Seeed Studio. The Wireless Input Output (Wio) Tracker is an open-source gateway that allows for faster GPS solutions for the internet of things (IoT) by tracking almost any moving thing and uploading the data wirelessly.

The Seeed Studio Wio Tracker is an Arduino-compatible development board that integrated Bluetooth® 3.0 and GPRS into a single board for quickly and easily developing location-tracking solutions. The GPRS feature provides a moderate bandwidth that allows immediate interaction between the user and device.

The Wio Tracker is based on the low-power Microchip SAM D21G ARM® Cortex®-M0+ microcontroller with 256 Kbytes of flash and 32 Kbytes of SRAM. The board features a space-saving Nano SIM/microSD socket, as well as six user-friendly Seeed Grove connections that enable any combination of Grove system sensors and actuators. This can simplify the prototyping and development phase. For added speed and flexibility, the Wio Tracker features 99 GNSS receiver channels for quicker lock times. The board offers a GNSS low power (GLP) mode and can reduce power consumption by up to 40 percent.
