The mangOH Yellow from Sierra Wireless is the newest and smallest mangOH platform for sending edge data to the cloud. It enables designers to build low-power IoT applications that can run for 10 years on a battery. It is available with full design support at Richardson RFPD.

The compact form-factor platform has a snap-in socket to add any CF3-compatible modules, including wireless modules (2G to 4G & LTE-M/NB-IoT, GPS) to achieve up to 10 years of battery life.

An IoT expansion card slot can plug-in any technology based on the IoT expansion card open standard.
