With the growing Internet of Things, Microchip has a LoRa® Technology wireless solution to address increasing demands on end-devices for long range connectivity, low power for battery operation, and low infrastructure cost for volume deployment. Microchip’s solution, the RN2483, utilizes a digital spread spectrum modulation and proprietary protocol in the Sub-GHz RF band to enable:
- Long range – greater than 15 km
- Low power consumption – up to 10 years battery life
- High network capacity – up to 1 million nodes
The RN2483 is a fully certified LoRa Sub-GHz, 433/868 MHz modem that serves as the end node device in the LoRa network infrastructure. This small form factor modem has the complete LoRaWAN protocol stack and PIC MCU on board, and is easy to configure via simple ASCII commands through the UAR which greatly reduces development time.
