RF SiP Snags CE Certification For Sigfox

ON Semiconductor has achieved CE certification for its AX-SIP-SFEU System in Package (SiP) solution, which means it conforms to health, safety, and environmental protection standards for products sold within the European Economic Area. The AX-SIP-SFEU provides ready-to-use Sigfox connectivity (uplink and downlink) for industrial IoT applications including building and home automation as well as sensor and asset tracking.

 

The SiP includes a Sigfox radio IC, discrete RF matching, all required passive components, and firmware into a single, miniature solution. The RF transceiver is Sigfox verified for the RC1 zone network. Housed in a 7 mm x 9 mm x 1 mm conformally coated package, the AX-SIP-SFEU occupies 10% of the space of a PCB module-based solution. The design specifies standby, sleep, and deep sleep mode currents of 0.55 mA, 1.2 µA, and 180 nA, respectively.

Fierce AI Week

Register today for Fierce AI Week - a free virtual event | August 10-12

Advances in AI and Machine Learning are adding an unprecedented level of intelligence to everything through capabilities such as speech processing and image & facial recognition. An essential event for design engineers and AI professionals, Engineering AI sessions during Fierce AI Week explore some of the most innovative real-world applications today, the technological advances that are accelerating adoption of AI and Machine Learning, and what the future holds for this game-changing technology.

 

Device connection is through a Universal Asynchronous Receiver Transmitter (UART) interface. AT commands are used to send frames and configure radio parameters; an API variant is available for customers wishing to write their own software to have a true single-chip solution. For deeper knowledge, peruse the AX-SIP-SFEU datasheet.
