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 can be deployed in space-constrained, remote IoT applications. The ultra-low power design has standby, sleep and deep sleep mode currents of just 0.55 milliamps (mA), 1.2 microamps (mA) and 180 nanoamps (nA) respectively allowing the device to be powered from a small battery.
Device connection for the AX-SIP-SFEU is through a 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.
AX-SIP-SFEU will be on ON Semiconductor’s booth at SigFox Connect, October 24-25th in Berlin, Germany.
