Apr 11, 2023 — by Giorgio Mendoza 1,312 views

The SoftRF T-BeamSUPREME is a new small embedded device designed and produced by LILYGO and SoftRF. The new development board is compatible with U-blox MAX-M10S modules and Seemtech SX1262 LoRa modules. 

The SoftRF T-BeamSUPREME comes with a ESP32-S3 microcontroller as other recently launched LILYGO devices (T-TWRT-SIM7080G)

It appears that there will be two “CORE” variants; one with the U-blox MAX-M10S-00B module and the other with a SX1262 LoRa module. The U-blox module is described as an ultra-low power GNSS receiver for high-performance asset-tracking devices with less than 25mW power consumption.

The LoRa module integrated seems to be the Semtech SX1262 also recently seen on the RAK11720 module.
