LPWA ProductsSigfox Modules

Murata has developed compact communication modules that support Sigfox communication. These modules are already "Sigfox" certified for easily installing in customer devices. Type ABZ (Sigfox) uses an STMicro STM32-based wireless microcontroller and SX1276 Semtech RFIC, and it operates in the frequency range of 860 to 930 MHz.

Sigfox Features

Wide Coverage at Low Power, Simple Settings for Quick Start

Sigfox is a global IoT network featuring low price, low power consumption, and long-range transmission.
Because it covers a wide area at low power, a major feature of Sigfox is its suitability for use in sensors and devices.
Sigfox's public network is attractive as a low-cost, reliable, and low-power solution. It is a network that handles extremely lightweight data with excellent interference resistance and fault tolerance, which is essential for infrastructure IoT and connecting large numbers of devices. As a Sigfox partner, Murata provides support for everything from certification to antenna design.

Sigfox Certification Types

[Module Certification] Sigfox Verified™

If you wish to develop your own solution or develop a full integrated Sigfox module, you will need to go through the Sigfox Verified™ certification process.
This certification will allow you to integrate Sigfox connectivity using Sigfox Library, which implements the Sigfox protocol.

[End-product Certification] Sigfox Ready™

Pre-requisites to apply for Sigfox Ready™ certification are:

  • Device must use a Sigfox Verified™ radio solution, such as a module or reference design.
  • Device is based on another Sigfox Ready™ device and complies with the rules described in the “Sigfox Ready™ similarity rules”.
