LiteOn announced that its wireless communication modules WSG300S, WSG303S, WSG304S and WSG306S have been officially certified by "Sigfox-Verified", which integrates RF and microcontroller technology from STMicroelectronics.
The WSG300S module supports RCZ2 (US, Mexico and Brazil) and RCZ4 (Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Colombia and Argentina), while WSG303S, WSG304S and WSG306S support RCZ1 (Europe, Oman, Iran) And South Africa).
LiteOn's full range of Sigfox certified modules integrates the S2-LP sub-1GHz RF transceiver with STMicroelectronics' STM32 microcontroller or BlueNRG-1 BLE system chip. Representing a high-performance, low-cost dual-radio cloud connectivity solution that enables customers to use IoT applications in a variety of contexts, including smart factories, smart farming, smart buildings, home security, asset tracking, and more.
Benedetto Vigna, president of analog, MEMS and sensor divisions at STMicroelectronics, said, "Over the years, STMicroelectronics has continued to invest in low-power RF IoT connectivity, while S2-LP sub-1GHz transceivers and BlueNRG BLE systems. The chip fits perfectly with the growth needs of the Sigfox IoT market. LiteOn's proven experience in the module market is bound to accelerate the ready-to-use Sigfox technology and the popularity of Global Cloud connectivity technology in the IoT market."
