SIGFOX reference design module for M2M

July 06, 2016 // By Graham Prophet
éolane (Le Fresne-sur-Loire, France) a company active in connected solutions for M2M and the Internet of Things (IoT), has introduced a SIGFOX reference design module assisting development of sensor-to-cloud applications for SIGFOX networks.

éolane’s SIGFOX reference design module is based on Silicon Labs’ EZR32 wireless microcontroller (MCU), which combines a high-performance sub-GHz transceiver with an energy-friendly ARM Cortex-M3 MCU. The reference design module offers wireless performance specifying -128 dBm sensitivity (154 dbm link budget) and bi-directional communication (100 bps uplink and 600 bps downlink). The small-footprint (18 x 26 mm) module provides a complete wireless sensing solution for space-sensitive applications.

 

éolane supplies a SIGFOX development kit that combines various sensors (including GPS, accelerometers, gyroscopes, temperature sensors, hygrometry/humidity sensors and magnetic sensors), common MCU interfaces (such as UART, USB and I ²C) and an open-source, Eclipse-based software development environment that enables access and monitoring of the sensors embedded in the kit.
