With just 10.0 mm × 8.0 mm × 1.6 mm, Murata developed the smallest LoRa module available in the world today.
Suitable for a wide range of high-volume applications where small size, long range, extended battery life, security and a competitive price point are requirements.
Based upon a second-generation Semtech SX1262 radio frequency IC (RFIC), the Type 1SJ-296 module is preprogrammed with a modem firmware that supports LoRaWAN™ US915 band protocol and is easily controlled with AT commands from the Host MCU through UART interface.
Operating from a single supply rail (up to 3.9V DC), the Type 1SJ-296 module incorporates several low power modes that allow the real time clock (RTC) to operate while drawing a typical current of just 1.3µA.
This enhanced current consumption allows devices based upon Murata’s module to operate for years from a single battery.
The resin mold package provides physical ruggedness, allowing the module to operate across the temperature range -40ºC to +85 ºC.
The new Type 1SJ LoRa module will help designers to develop solutions that meet the most demanding requirements, especially in areas such as asset tracking, utilities, agriculture, smart cities, smart buildings, industrial and other IoT applications.
Sample quantities of the new module, along with a full evaluation kit are available with immediate effect.
