Arduino MKR WAN 1310 MCU + LoRaWAN Development Board

Arduino’s MKR WAN 1310 provides designers with an easy way to add LoRa connectivity into larger projects, with a compact form factor of 67.64 x 25 mm. Improving over the previous MKR WAN 1300 board, the MKR WAN 1310 features 2 MB external SPI flash memory for local data logging before bulk transfer using Over-The-Air (OTA) functionality, and improved power consumption as low as 104 µA for extended battery life. A secure element (ATECC508) is also included on the board to protect your IoT from external threats.

The MKR WAN 1310 features pin headers for easy connection to external systems, and a battery connector and on-board charging circuit to support power via a 3.7-V Li-Po single-cell rechargeable battery (1024 mAh minimum capacity). It can also be powered via 5 V applied through the USB connector or VIN pin. Applications include all manner of IoT applications from smart home and building automation to industrial.

The two hearts of the MKR WAN 1310 are the Microchip SAMD21 32-bit Cortex-M0+ low-power MCU – running at up to 48 MHz and supported by 256 kB flash and 32 kB SRAM – and Murata’s CMWX1ZZABZ LoRa module, which supports 433-, 868-, and 915-MHz carrier frequencies for EU and US region support. Arduino offers Sigfox, NB-IoT, and 3G solutions for alternative global connectivity, with MKR pin compatibility for easy swapping to serve different customer requirements – this swapping also extends to boards such as the MKR WiFi 1010 for a completely different type of IoT. The MKR WAN 1310 is compatible with Arduino IoT Cloud for remote monitoring and control.

The pinout for the Arduino MKR WAN 1310 can be found in the diagram below:

With a circuit operating voltage of 3.3 V, this board features the following interfaces with a DC current per I/O pin of 7 mA:

  • 22x digital I/O pins (15 dedicated)
  • 13x PWM pins
  • 7x analogue inputs with 8-, 10-, or 12-bit ADC
  • 1x analogue output via 10-bit DAC
  • UART, SPI, and I2C interfaces, with an additional I2C port
  • +3.3 V and +5 V output pins for reference or powering external devices
  • 1x GND pin
  • 1x Reset pin
  • Power, user, and charging LEDs
  • A reset button
