April 9, 2018 – Mouser Electronics, Inc., the New Product Introduction (NPI) leader empowering innovation, today announced it has entered into a global distribution agreement with Altitude Technology, a leading-edge designer and supplier of intelligent sensor technologies for the smart home and secure Internet of Things (IoT) market. As part of the agreement, Mouser Electronics becomes an authorized distributor of Altitude Tech’s popular line of IoT Bit HAT modules and accessories, which easily integrate with the Raspberry Pi single-board computer to enable internet access, GPS location data, and Bluetooth® connectivity.

The Altitude Technology portfolio of solutions, available from Mouser Electronics, consists of three main IoT Bit Hardware Attached on Top (HAT) modules that support the Raspberry Pi single-board computer. Each module is plug-and-play, supports any Micro SIM card with a single terminal command setup, and provides high-efficiency power regulation up to 3 A.

The IoT Bit GSM HAT is an 85-Kbits per second (kbps) intelligent HAT module that provides GSM mobile data logging for the Raspberry Pi, as well as GPS positioning information, Bluetooth connectivity, and battery support. The IoT Bit 3G HAT is a 4.5-Mbits per second (Mbps) intelligent HAT module that provides fast internet connectivity for web browsing and small data transfers. The IoT Bit 4G HAT delivers ultra-fast 4G internet connectivity (100 mbps down/50 mbps up) and is excellent for large downloads and video streaming. Both the 3G HAT and the 4G HAT also offer access to GPS data and SMS transmission through the application programming interface (API).

Supporting IoT Bit HAT modules is a variety of optional antenna accessories also available from Mouser. Optional accessories include a water-resistant GSM 28 dBi antenna, two 433 MHz antennas for the GSM HAT, and a high-speed 4G aerial 28 dBi antenna or a 4G SMA aerial 10 dBi antenna upgrade for the 4G HAT.
