The development kit contains 60 high-performance passive components, including crystals, filters and antennas, from five different product ranges. The devices are all commonly used in LoRa product development in Asia, Europe and North America.
The components in the passive component LoRA development kit complement popular LoRa ICs from Semtech, Microchip and STMicro and have been specifically chosen to quicken designs for use in multiple markets based on available license-free radio bands.
The kit includes three different sized 32.000 MHz crystals that meet the frequency, thermal and performance requirements of the LoRa protocol. The kit also has 32 MHz and 52 MHz temperature compensated crystal oscillators (TCXO). The crystals offer low-G sensitivity compatibility with LoRa standard requirements, and can be used for applications subjected to harsh environmental conditions such as acceleration forces. To meet different regional LoRa performance requirements, the LoRa Development Kit contains 433 MHz, 868 MHz and 915 MHz SAW filters as well as three different size stub antennas in the same frequencies. In addition, the development kit offers 868 MHz and 915 MHz ceramic filters. The kit also has a memory stick with product specifications for each component.
The development kit costs $99.00 at authorized distributors including Dove Electronics and Arrow Electronics.
