POWER-UP PCBA #5: Free LoRa-E5 Wireless Modules Sponsorship for PCBA Service

In this challenging time, in order to help developers working with LoRaWAN, Seeed is providing 5 of the new LoRa-E5 STM32WLE5JC modules, free with prototypes made with Seeed Fusion PCBA.

What is LoRa-E5 STM32WLE5JC?

LoRa-E5 is the world’s first LoRa module with an ST system-level MCU embedded. Early versions of the LoRaWAN module required an additional MCU to run the application code, but now you can directly use the LoRa-E5 STM32WLE5JC module to complete the task.

With it’s compact size, easy installation and fine-tuning, the LoRa-E5 is the perfect candidate for new smart IoT projects. Compared with other LoRaWAN modules, the price of the LoRa-E5 module is very competitive, which will carry great savings along the whole product development process.

LoRa-E5 is suitable as LoRaWAN sensor nodes and other wireless communication applications, particularly long-distance, ultra-low-power applications. Designed to industrial standards, the modules are suitable for industrial IoT (IIoT) products, which is the foundation for Industry 4.0 and Smart Factories.

It can play an important role in providing smart and efficient networks in the future, for example in smart cities, industrial applications, smart home applications, healthcare, agriculture. The highly integrated Lora-E5 has great flexibility. Developers can easily manipulate other GPIOs of the MCU, including UART, I2C, ADC, etc.

Orkhan AmirAslan, a hardware engineer from TTN recently developed a feather-style breakout board for the LoRa-E5 module, ahead of the module’s release, which is currently being manufactured with Seeed’s Fusion PCB assembly service.

As well as providing support for the LoRa-E5 module, with the PCBA Design for Assembly service (DFA), Seeed’s engineers were able to identify incorrect packages and footprint issues ahead of time, mitigating costly problems and delays later on. The PCB Design for Manufacture (DFM) review caught a major short, which would have turned the feathers into paperweights. Both DFA and DFM review services are included free with all PCB Assembly orders.

If you are interested in using it in your designs, then keep reading and see what Seeed offers!

PCBA Prototype Sponsorship for Commercial LoRa-E5 products.

If you are engaged in wireless applications, not limited to meter reading, IoT nodes, sensor networks or other low-power wide-area IoT scenarios that utilize the LoRa-E5, then don’t miss this opportunity. Seeed Fusion PCBA is providing designers with 5 free Lora-E5 modules for prototype PCBA orders.

How to apply:

What you need to do is just fill in the form and complete your LoRa-E5 design.

Please click the link and fill in the form:

For those who have successfully applied for sponsorship, please let us know when the design based on LoRa-E5 is completed. We will review your application and fulfill the sponsorship by bounding a $50 coupon to your account to deduct the price of five LoRa-E5 modules.

In addition, Seeed is providing free prototyping for business users to further reduce the financial burden, especially in the current difficult times. When you prototype with Seeed Fusion, and your product is upgraded to batch production (100 pieces or more) with Seeed Fusion, the prototyping costs will be deducted (up to 6% of the batch production value).

Seeed Fusion provides hardware services from prototyping to mass production. With more than 12 years of experience in the field of electronic manufacturing, Seeed’s expertise and connections can help you reduce costs, improve yield and reliability, and reduce production risks. 

The Seeed Fusion turnkey PCB assembly service handles PCB manufacturing, parts procurement and assembly all-in-one. With the Open Parts Libraries (OPL) of locally sourced parts, you can save money and if all your parts are from the OPL, the production time can be shortened to as little as 7 working days. There are currently over 150,000 parts in the Open Parts Library and is still growing. Get an instant online quote now.


Attention! For the first time ever, we’re bringing you free functional testing of 1 piece for every PCBA order. Seeed Fusion functional testing ensures the quality of PCBA products and avoids delays in product release due to rework. Come and get the first try!

We are always trying to improve the PCBA service we deliver to our customers:

  1. Interesting. I am using IMST modules (from Germany) now on a plug-in on boards you build for me.
    Could consider to swap to these for the next batch. Also the construction could then be done by Seeed.

    Of course would need to do a test.
    – Do you have one on a break-out board for a test?
    – Is there documentation for the API of the built-in LoRa stack?
    – Is this stack LoRa Alliance pre-certified?

    Cheers, Gijs

    1. Hi Gijs, thank you for your trust in Seeed and your interest in LoRa-E5.

      About the questions you raised, our reply is as follows:
      – We will launch the Lora E5 development board at the end of December.
      – The SDK also will be launched in December.
      – It doesn’t have LoRa Alliance pre-certified. LoRa-E5 provides FCC and CE certification.

      Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have further questions.

      Cheers,
