The Hologram Nova is a global-band, simple-to-use, and completely open source cellular USB modem. Together, the Nova and Hologram Developer Tools are what we believe is the simplest way to get started using cellular on embedded Linux. This modem is also compatible with Linux, Mac OS, and Windows devices via an AT command interface.


We have made available the datasheet for the Nova hardware. The datasheet covers:

  • System block diagram
  • Input/Output Characteristics for USB and UART
  • Power Inputs
  • Operating Conditions
  • Mechanical Dimensions
  • LEDs
  • Antenna support
  • Bill of Materials

OSHWA and Github

Hologram is a big believer in open source software and hardware. That is why we have certified our hardware with the Open Source Hardware Association and have made the Nova hardware files and schematics available on Github.
