LPWAN module supports LoRa, SigFox

Murata says its collaboration with STMicroelectronics and SigFox has enabled it to become the the first major vendor to offer an LPWAN module that supports the LoRa and SigFox protocols.

“We are very excited to collaborate with ST on launching Murata’s LoRa/SigFox dual mode module,” said product manager Samir Hennaoui. “By combining these two complementary technologies, we have produced a module suitable for many different kinds of applications. The interoperability of the module will also encourage new customers to enter the market.”

By porting the SigFox stack alongside the LoRa stack on its Type ABZ LoRaWAN module, Murata says its customers can decide which network technology best serves their application, depending on location, service requirements and cost. Support for both standards will also allow bridging between both networks, allowing dual mode operation from a firmware package that can be used globally.

The Type ABZ LoRaWan module uses an STM32 based wireless MCU and an SX1276 Semtech RFIC. Operating at frequencies ranging from 806 to 930MHz, the part has a nominal output power of +14dBm, which can be boosted to +20dBm for long range or poor signal location applications.
