@ANY2400-SC USB Dongles

A plug-and-play USB-hosted gateway for IEEE 802.15.4 wireless networks. Using versatile @ANY2400-SC modules for international 2.4 GHz ISM band, these dongles combine exceptional transmission characteristics and out-of-the-box connectivity to IEEE 802.15.4-based networks.

Mechanical module size 53.5 x 17 x 5 mm

Based on the robust @ANY2400-SC modules, the @ANY2400-SC USB Dongles are reliable, host-powered gateway solutions in a compact size form factor. Optimal RF characteristics are achieved using on-chip ceramic antenna (@ANY2400-SC-1) or U.FL connector (@ANY2400-SC-2) option, thus providing maximum flexibility of external antenna adaptations. The on-board UART chip allows for an easy setup of a serial connection via USB interface.

Supported with off-the-shelf drivers by the commercially maintained FTDI Driver Suite, the USB 2.0 compliant interface ensures a seamless integration to various operating systems. Upgrades can be performed via an on-board bootloader or an integrated JTAG interface. White plastic enclosures are available as accessories, on demand.

Ensure the quick setup by ordering the product preprogrammed with either our AT-command-based Smart MAC Suite firmware, your own firmware, or common stacks such as 6LoWPAN, Zigbee PRO or Lightweight Mesh.
