Sigfox + BLE module achieves certification
31 July 2019, Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless, IoT

Jorjin has received the ‘Sigfox Verified’ certification for its WS2116, a Sigfox Monarch + BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) module. The WS2116 features an intercontinental tracking function for solutions such as asset trackers, pallet trackers, container trackers, trolley trackers, luggage trackers and many other devices such as wearables, security buttons, panic buttons, alert buttons and air quality sensors.

The module benefits from the performance and energy efficiency of STMicroelectronics’ BlueNRG-2 BLE system-on-chip (SoC) and S2-LP sub-1 GHz RF transceiver. As a fully programmable device, it exploits the ultra low-power Arm Cortex-M0 technology embedded in ST’s BLE SoC with 256 KB of Flash memory to act as an independent IoT connectivity node.

The combination of BLE with Sigfox’s 0G network provides new functions to IoT systems, such as firmware updates over-the-air, which was not possible with conventional ‘Sigfox-only’ modules. Other benefits of having an IoT device connected both remotely through the Sigfox network and locally through BLE, include the possibility to modify device settings during installation or maintenance, or to trace assets which often change positions inside an area covered with BLE beacon stations.

The evaluation board for the WS211x module uses the Arduino interface to provide convenience for customer development, and is compatible with ST’s Arduino shield boards featuring MEMS motion sensors, environmental sensors, and time-of-flight (ToF) ranging sensors.

An SDK is available from Jorjin that enables customers to develop applications using WS211x modules with ST’s sensor shield boards, as well as an AT command list that assists customers in testing the modules’ BLE and Sigfox functions.
