    What's Whisper Node?
    It's a real ultra-low power board based on the popular Atmel AVR ATMega328p, an Arduino Clone. Thanks to the highly efficient MCP16251 Step-up Switching regulator, this board can be powered with little as 0.9V. In other words, you can run it on a single Alkaline Cell until the battery is totally dry.

    Alternatively, you could connect a 5V power supply, like an USB charger, and take advantage of the dual 300mA LDO regulator, giving more flexibility while developing or running hunger projects. Having two independent 3.3V rails is a great solution to prevent other components from taking the power of the core circuits.

    As standard, this board comes with an RFM69W Sub-GHz RF module, giving you wireless connectivity out of the box! Finally, a W25C40 4MBit SPI Flash is attached to the PCB, giving you plenty of storage and option for remote firmware upgrade over-the-air. You get all this running on a board that consumes less than 4µA in sleep mode when powered by a 3V source, like two Alkaline cells.
