TypeABZ-104 is a new LoRa modem module embedding Semtech modem firmware integrating the LoRaWAN protocol stack and device-management features including security keys.
This new stand-alone module measure just 12.5 x 11.6 x 1.76mm, is constructed in a metal shielded package and comprises a Semtech SX1276 ultra-long range spread spectrum wireless transceiver and an STMicro STM32L0 series ARM Cortex-M0+ 32-bit microcontroller (MCU).
An integrated TCXO that has robust low drift thermal characteristics provides an accurate clock source for RF transceiver.
This module can transfer data via a UART.
TypeABZ-104 has pre-certified radio regulatory approvals for operating in 868 and 915MHz industrial, scientific and medical (ISM) spectrum in most geographical regions of the world.
The normal output power is +14dBm but a PA boost function can be selected to increase RF output to +18.5dBm for long-range application or those where the end -device is sited in a poor signal location indoors.
Typical applications for this module includes smart metering, wearables, tracking, M2M and internet of things (IoT) edge nodes. Accomodating a wide range of temperature.
