The Evaluation 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 Evaluation Board is suitable for developing S76G module and also perfect for "Proof of Concept" usage or small volume field trials at any IoT project's beginning stage.
S76G SiP module integrates an ARM Cortex (32-bit RISC core operating at a 32MHz frequency) MCU with LoRa® modulation and CXD5603GF multi-GNSS receiver. This enables the user to have a long range spread spectrum communication and a very high interference immunity while also reducing the current consumption. S76G 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. Added with the CXD5603GF has an integrated digital noise filters and spectrum analyzer, enabling developers to measure against noise and observe the received spectrum in the final product.
This incredible Development Kit from AcSiP is made with LoRa Alliance™ specifications (LoRaWAN™ Protocol) included with GPS functions, 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.
