Murata’s Type ABZ LoRa module, available from Mouser Electronics, is a small, cost-effective LoRaWAN module capable of supporting a wide range of sensors through 18 general-purpose inputs and outputs (GPIOs). The module includes a Semtech SX1276 ultralong range spread spectrum wireless transceiver and a STMicro STM32L0 series ARM® Cortex®-M0+ 32 bit microcontroller, with communication via UART, SPI, or I2C interfaces. The STM32L0 microcontroller includes 192 kBytes of flash and 20 kBytes of RAM, offering enough memory to embed customer applications and host other modulation stacks. The microcontroller also offers an optional STSAFE secure element to enhance the network security capabilities.

The Type ABZ module features pre-certified radio regulatory approvals for operating in the 868 MHz and 915 MHz industrial, scientific and medical (ISM) spectrum in most geographical regions of the world. The device’s normal output power is +14 dBm but a PA boost function can be selected to increase radio frequency (RF) output to + 20 dBm for long-range applications. The module also integrates a temperature-compensated crystal oscillator (TCXO) with robust low-drift thermal characteristics to provide an accurate clock source for the Semtech transceiver.

 

The Murata Type ABZ module measures just 12.5 × 11.6 × 1.76mm and is housed in a metal shielded package. Typical applications for the module include smart metering, wearables, tracking, machine-to-machine (M2M) communication, and IoT edge nodes.
