Wio-E5 mini (STM32WLE5JC) Dev Board, for Long Range Application
Wio-E5 mini is a compacted-sized dev board suitable for the rapid testing and building of small-size LoRa device and application prototyping. Wio-E5 mini is embedded with and leads out full GPIOs of Wio-E5 STM32WLE5JC. It has rich interfaces including UART, ADC, SPI, IIC,etc. Supporting Long Range protocol and global frequency, Wio-E5 mini is able to achieve a transmission range of up to 10 km in open area and ultra-low power consumption.

Wio-E5 mini is a compacted-sized development board suitable for the rapid testing and building of small-size prototyping and helps you design your ideal Long Range wireless IoT device with a long-distance transmission range.
There is a built-in USB to UART function on board, you could connect the Wio-E5 mini to your PC with a USB type C cable, and use serial communication software to send AT commands and read data from the board.
For example, connect Wio-E5 mini to Seeeduino XIAO and the Expansion Board via UART, and send AT commands and read data from Seeeduino XIAO through Arduino IDE serial monitor.
Develop your own Long Range development board with MCU function by using STM32Cube Programmer, which is the SDK officially provided by STMicroelectronics. To download this SDK resource, please find the resources in learning and document down below.
With all the outstanding features listed above, the Wio-E5 mini will be a superior choice for IoT device development, testing, prototyping, and applications in long-distance, ultra-low power consumption IoT scenarios like smart agriculture, smart office, and smart industry.

1. Factory AT Firmware
Wio-E5 series has a built-in AT command firmware, which supports Long Ragne Class A/B/C protocol and a wide frequency plan: EU868/US915/AU915/AS923/KR920/IN865. With this AT command firmware, users can easily and quickly build their prototype or application.
The AT command firmware contains a bootloader for DFU and the AT application. The "PB13/SPI_SCK/BOOT" pin is used to control Wio-E5 to stay in the bootloader or jump to the AT application. When PB13 is HIGH, the module will jump to AT application after reset, with a default baud rate of 9600. When PB13 is LOW (press the "Boot" button on Wio-E5 Dev Board or Wio-E5 mini), the module will stay in the bootloader, and keep transmitting "C" character every 1S at baud rate 115200.
1. Factory AT Firmware is programmed with RDP(Read Protection) Level 1, developers need to remove RDP first with STM32Cube Programmer. Note that regression RDP to level 0 will cause a flash memory mass to erase and the Factory AT Firmware can't be restored again.
2. The "PB13/SPI_SCK/BOOT" pin on the Wio-E5 module is just a normal GPIO, not the "BOOT0" pin of the MCU. This "PB13/SPI_SCK/BOOT" pin is used in the bootloader of the Factory AT firmware, to decide to jump to APP or stay in bootloader(for DFU). The real "BOOT0" pin doesn't pinout to the module, so developers need to be careful when developing low-power applications.

from order viewIt's a very nice product, but I wish it used the same UART port for the APP_LOG that the STM32 Nucleo boards used. It would be easier to use.
from order viewSuperior product. After short testing, it works very nicely.
from order viewDocumentation is a little bit thin. There is very limited info about this board from Seeed just some very basic information on how to get started. That lack of information really lets the excellent hardware down.
