MKR FOX 1200-board

MKR FOX 1200

End of Life

The MKR FOX 1200 is your entry point to start working with the European Sigfox networks. The board can easily be added to the Sigfox infrastructure. It also features very low power consumption, and is designed to run on batteries for a longer period of time.

The MKR FOX 1200 adds Sigfox connectivity to your projects. Using the popular Arm® Cortex®-M0 32-bit SAMD21 processor, it also features the Microchip® Smart RF ATA8520 for Sigfox connectivity. The board is part of the MKR family, where you can choose from a large variety of shields to build projects out of the box with minimal effort!
Cortex-M0 32-bit SAMD21

The powerful, low-power processor that is used in all MKR Family boards.

Microchip® Smart RF ATA8520

Fully integrated, single-chip RF transmitter with low power consumption.

World Map

SigFox covers most parts of Europe, South Africa, Japan and is being introduced in many more countries.
