SIGFOX reference design module

A SIGFOX reference design module has been introduced by éolane, a French solution provider. The small-footprint (18 x 26mm) module is said to provide a wireless sensing solution for space-sensitive applications.

According to éolane, the module makes it easier to develop sensor-to-cloud applications for SIGFOX networks and is based on Silicon Labs’ EZR32 wireless MCU, which combines a sub-GHz transceiver with an ARM Cortex-M3 MCU. The reference design module offers a sensitivity of -128dBm (154dbm link budget) and bi-directional communication (10bit/s uplink and 600bit/s downlink).

Eolane also 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). It contains 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.
