The company Microchip Technology Inc., a leading provider of microcontroller, analog-to-digital circuits, analog and Flash-IP solutions, today announced the industry's first complete evaluation kits LoRaWAN. New kits provide developers with all the necessary components to create low energy consuming WAN (LPWAN) in Europe (DV164140-1 for a range of 868 MHz) or North America (DV164140-2 to 915 MHz). Each kit includes two sensor Mote (LoRaWAN ™) based on modules of Microchip RN2483 or RN2903 Lora, gateway and server application LoRaWAN local LoRaWAN.
Lora technology allows to achieve a range of up to 16 km and provide a 10-year service life of the battery pack. The technology is aimed at applications with low data rate and rarely go on the air to track and monitor such things as energy, location, communal infrastructure, smart city, environmental protection, agriculture and public security. The technology is mainly used for data transmission from the sensors, but support bidirectional transmission allows you to receive a confirmation of critical data in real time and manage remote sites.
"Lora New evaluation kits provide what many of our customers have requested, as long as we have not announced the industry's first certified module this year," said Steve Caldwell, vice president of wireless solutions (Wireless Solutions Group) company Microchip. "Lora Evaluation Kits provide everything needed for a developer to create LoRaWAN network directly to their workplace.
"Each set can serve as a building block for the development of the network LoraWAN long range, where developers can look forward to a range of 16 km and up to 10 years of battery life on two AAA batteries. Lora technology uses spread spectrum modulation, which provides excellent reliability data noisy environments and it works through the physical barriers. As the two Mote sensor has a European certificate of compliance with European R & TTE Directive Assessed (DV164140-1) or FCC certification (DV164140-2), time to market can be significantly reduced by simplifying and standardizing the state certification.
