Adafruit LoRa RFM95W Radio Bonnets

Adafruit LoRa RFM95W Radio Bonnets are Raspberry Pi computers with WiFi and BLUETOOTH®. Upgrade a Raspberry Pi with a LoRa/LoRaWAN radio to communicate over very long distances. The bonnets plug into a Pi and give long-range wireless capabilities to remote nodes that may be battery-powered. Create Internet gateways with ease.

A 128x32 OLED display is included for status messages and three buttons for creating a custom user interface or sending test messages. All of the above is supported with Python libraries to send or receive LoRa data with other matching modules. Send data to a LoRaWAN gateway, or set up single channel LoRaWAN-to-Internet gateways.


  • Packet radio with ready-to-go CircuitPython libraries
  • Uses the license-free ISM band: "European ISM" at 868MHz or "American ISM" at 915MHz
  • Use a simple wire antenna or spot for uFL or SMA radio connector
  • SX1276 LoRa®-based module with SPI interface
  • +5dBm to +20dBm up to 100mW power output capability (power output selectable in software)
  • ~100mA peak during +20dBm transmits, ~30mA during active radio listening
  • Range of approx. 2Km, depending on obstructions, frequency, antenna, and power output
