LoRa gateway and concentrator card
15 August 2018, Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless, IoT

Laird’s Sentrius RG1xx Series LoRa-enabled gateway is a secure, scalable, robust solution for end-to-end control of a private LoRaWAN network. Leveraging Laird’s field-proven and reliable 50 Series ‘Wireless Bridge’ certified module, it also offers enterprise dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v4.0 (BLE and Classic) and wired Ethernet for design freedom.

Based on the Semtech SX1301/SX1257 chipset designs, it offers a LoRa range up to 16 km and pre-loaded LoRa packet forwarder software, ideal for highly scalable, flexible IoT networks. The gateway works with Laird’s RM1xx Series LoRa+BLE certified modules for simple out-of-the-box integration, and is compatible with third-party cloud and LoRa partners, as well as any LoRaWAN certified client devices.

For OEMs looking to integrate a high-performance, certified LoRaWAN gateway interface into any Linux based platform, Laird also offers the Sentrius RG1xx-M2 concentrator card. This hardware solution expands upon Semtech drivers and reference design for improved RF performance. Comprehensive integration and design services for a custom gateway are also available via Laird’s dedicated engineering services team, as are qualified LoRa antenna solutions from Laird.

The module is designed around the Sentrius SX1301 digital baseband chip with an integrated LoRa concentrator IP, which is designed to perform high-performance gateway function in the ISM band. The RF front-end consists of two of SX1257 high-performance digital I and Q modulator/demodulator transceiver chips. The SX1257 is designed to operate over the frequency band of 862 – 960 MHz to cover the European and North American markets.

The RG1xx-M2 concentrator card’s RF front-end is terminated with a standard U.FL connector. The board’s form factor and connector pinout are designed to conform to M2.COM specifications. The card requires a single 5 V supply and it generates its power supply requirements on-board. Standard SPI communication, reset and power supply to the board are provided through a 75-position host interface connector.
