@ANY900 Modules

A ruggedized IEEE 802.15.4 wireless networking module for Sub-1 GHz ISM band that combines exceptional transmission characteristics and ultra-low power consumption in a tiny form factor ideally suited for battery powered applications.

Mechanical module size 40 x 13.5 x 3 mm

@ANY900 modules are fully integrated solutions that contain all of the digital and analog circuitry required for easily establishing wireless connectivity. Utilizing the robust and popular Microchip/ Atmel platform, the modules achieve optimal RF characteristics with either an on-chip ceramic antenna (@ANY900-1) or a U.FL connector (@ANY900-2), providing ultimate flexibility of external antenna adaptations.

The module eliminates the need for costly and time-consuming RF development and shortens time to market for a wide range of standards-based wireless products.

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.

Thanks to @ANY modules’ impressive feature set, creating ambitious wireless IoT designs becomes a breeze.
