First Passive-Component LoRa Development Kit Simplifies IoT Design

Raltron Electronics unleashes what it calls the industry’s first passive component LoRa Development Kit to ease IoT design projects. The development kit features five different product families with a total of 60 passive components, including crystals, filters, and antennas, commonly used in product development based on the LoRa protocol. The development kit includes components that facilitate IoT device development and meet LoRa protocol requirements in Asia, Europe, and North America.

 

The kit’s passive components are designed to work with popular LoRa ICs from Semtech, Microchip, and STMicro. The components have been chosen for use in multiple markets based on available license-free radio bands.

The kit includes three different sized 32-MHz crystals that meet the frequency, thermal, and performance requirements of the LoRa protocol. The kit also has 32 MHz and 52 MHz temperature compensated crystal oscillators (TCXO). The crystals offer low-G sensitivity compatibility with LoRa standard requirements and can be used for applications subjected to harsh environmental conditions such as acceleration forces.

 

To meet different regional LoRa performance requirements, the kit contains 433-, 868-, and 915-MHz SAW filters as well as three different size stub antennas in the same frequencies. This is important as Asia, Europe and North America utilize different frequency bands for LoRa.

 

In addition, the development kit offers 868- and 915-MHz ceramic filters and a memory stick with product specifications for each component. The 60-piece passive component LoRa development kit is available for $99.
