Linkwave Part Number: 9073-01

Combine the Raspberry Pi compute power with the Pilot’s remote communications 4G data connectivity technology, to harness full IoT on the edge. Raspberry Pis are missing a real and reliable remote communication solution, currently limited to short-range Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. The PiloT brings remote 4G networking to your Raspberry Pi projects with an easy-to-integrate and setup hat solution.

The PiloT is a HAT-compliant board that is compatible with all versions of Raspberry Pi with a 40-pin header, including Pi 2,3,4 and Zero models. Fully controllable with I/O pins, the PiloT can communicate with the Pi over USB or serial ports*. The PiloT 4G-1is an LTE CAT-1 device with a fallback to 2G for Europe.

The PiloT can be fully controlled from the Raspberry Pi and can support data communication using either PPP or CDC-NCM (PiloT 4G-1). Scripts to automate communication setup are available

The PiloT power state is controlled via the Rpi GPIO and the PiloT is powered via the RPi 40-pin header.

Control and data communications between the PiloT with the RPi are via USB or the RPi physical serial port. Note that some RPi variants use the physical serial port to communicate with the RPi onboard WiFi / Bluetooth systems.



The PiloT is currently compatible with the following devices:

  • Raspberry Pi 4
  • Raspberry Pi 2 Model B
  • Raspberry Pi 3 Model B
  • Raspberry Pi 2 Model B+
  • Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+
  • Raspberry Pi Zero
  • Raspberry Pi Zero W
  • Up board (standalone mode)


  • 1 x Pilot 4G Hat 
  • 1 x USB to USB micro cable
