Le Fresne-sur-Loire, France --- éolane has introduced a comprehensive SIGFOX reference design module that makes it easy to develop sensor-to-cloud applications for SIGFOX networks. As a SIGFOX partner and SIGFOX Ready solution provider, éolane is extending its range of sensor and actuator development platforms for SIGFOX networks.
éolane’s new 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 exceptional wireless performance with -128 dBm sensitivity (154 dbm link budget) and bi-directional communication (100 bps uplink and 600 bps downlink). The small-footprint (18 mm x 26 mm) module provides a complete wireless sensing solution for space-sensitive applications.
Complementing the SIGFOX reference design module, éolane supplies a SIGFOX development kit that combines various sensors (including GPS, accelerometers, gyroscopes, temperature sensors, hygrometry/humidity sensors and magnetic sensors), popular MCU interfaces (such as UART, USB and I2C) and an open-source, Eclipse-based software development environment that enables easy access and monitoring of the sensors embedded in the kit. The combination of éolane’s development kit and SIGFOX reference design module simplifies the prototyping and development of wireless sensing applications for the IoT.
