LoRaWAN Modem Solution Introduced at Murata

Murata has expanded its Type 1SJ product line with the addition of a new LoRaWAN modem solution.

Murata “The new Type 1SJ LoRaWAN modem module allows designers to develop products that meet the most demanding requirements, especially in areas such as asset tracking, utilities, agriculture, smart cities, smart buildings, industrial, and other IoT applications. By collaborating with Semtech on this offering, we leverage both companies’ leadership and expertise to create the solutions most needed in the IoT market,” said Steve Kim, Business Development Manager, Connectivity Solutions for Murata Americas.

“LoRaWAN empowers customers to develop secure, next-generation and innovative IoT applications by providing them with accessible and easy-to-use solutions. The long-range and low power advantages of LoRaWAN enables applications with leading flexibility for nearly any possible use case and vertical market,” said Pedro Pachuca, Director of Wireless Products in Semtech’s Wireless and Sensing Products Group. “Murata’s module allows developers as well as enterprises to efficiently develop their applications and quickly bring them to market, shortening the design and implementation cost.”

The AT-command controlled modem module version measures only 10.0 mm x 8.0 mm x 1.6 mm, making it the smallest available in the world. Operating from a single supply rail up to 3.9V DC, the device incorporates several low-power modes that allow the real-time clock (RTC) to operate while drawing a typical current of just 1.3µA.

This current consumption level assures that a single battery can operate for years. Additionally, the resin mold package provides physical ruggedness with a -40ºC to +85ºC temperature range.

Based on a second-generation Semtech SX1262 radio frequency IC (RFIC), the Type 1SJ LoRaWAN modem module comes preloaded with AT Command controlled modem firmware and a LoRaWAN stack with an AT Command middle layer. These features enable a faster time-to-market and ease design challenges for IoT developers.

The device currently supports the US915 band in North America. Future adaptations of the module are intended for Europe, India, China and Pacific Rim markets.

It is suitable for a wide range of applications where a miniaturized footprint, long-range, extended battery life, advanced security, and a competitive price point are all critical requirements.
