That URL doesn't work, but:
This seems to be a single module that has
CPU (Cortex M4, low power ARM)
but it does not have BLE or wifi. The board that is sort of nodemcu
sized looks interesting, and it's nice it has an SMA connector for Lora.
The ESP32 has an ARM but it is some Xtensa variant. And it has
So the new part from seeed is not a direct replaement, as to get a
device to function as it does now, you'd have to add wifi or bluetooth.
As I understand it, the big power draw is running wifi, and I am
guessing also having the lora receiver enabled.
I think this part could be used to make a lora-only relay station with

buildable for as many devices as possible, in terms of forcing
portability on it by adding support. If it's really easy, that comment
is misplaced :-)
Keep in mind that I am a disaster.radio.newbie so I may have gotten
