EK-S76SXB Development Kit (1 set) includes:
1x EK-S76SXB EVK board
1x LoRa® Transceiver
2x extra S76S SiP modules
The EVK board is designed in X-Bee form factor which is very compact and reserves all interfaces for developers to access its embedded MCU functions. AcSiP has designed a "Grove" connector on the EVK board for developers to connect lots of existing "Grove" sensors in the market. This Development Kit is suitable for developing S76S module and also perfect for "Proof of Concept" usage or small volume field trials at any IoT project's beginning stage.
S76S SiP module integrates an ARM Cortex (32-bit RISC core operating at a 32MHz frequency) MCU with LoRa® modulation. This enables the user to have a long range spread spectrum communication and a very high interference immunity while also reducing the current consumption. S76S has the capability to gain a sensitivity of over -137 dBm. This device contains a powerful amplifier yield and when coupled with its high sensitivity can thus create a low data rate usage that needs a wide range or robustness.
This incredible Development Kit from AcSiP is made with LoRa Alliance™ specifications (LoRaWAN™ Protocol), which provides additional benefits and advantages such as blocking and selectivity over normal modulation techniques. This also helps to solve traditional design issues including range, interference immunity, and energy consumption.
