April 08, 2016 // By Graham Prophet
AMIHO Technology (Cambridge, UK) and Rohm Semiconductor (Willich-Münchheid, Germany) have configured an evaluation kit for sub-GHz radio designs. The kit contains two nodes based on AMIHO’s AM060 868 MHz Wireless M-Bus radio modem module and features the Rohm LAPIS ML7345 radio transceiver.

The AM060 module offfers high sensitivity, is contained in AMIHO’s compact footprint (17.8 x 20.3 mm), is pre-loaded with AMIHO’s fully-featured Wireless M-Bus software stack and drivers, has on-board power saving features and is ready for deployment in volume production. It includes AES128 encrpytion with AES256 to follow.


Features include;

• AMIHO’s complete Wireless Meter-Bus radio module with fully featured Wireless M-Bus-compliant protocol stack

• Compact footprint 20.3 x 18.7 mm

• Universal evaluation board suitable for all AMIHO products

• AES128 encryption/decryption

• Accessible on-board Renesas RL78 MCU

• Rohm LAPIS ML7345 radio transceiver

• M-Bus packet engine for low power operation
