@ANY900ARM-SC Modules

A cutting-edge high security IEEE 802.15.4 wireless networking module for European, Chinese, Japanese, and North American Sub-1 GHz ISM bands. It combines exceptional transmission characteristics and industry leading low power consumption in an ultra-small form factor.

Mechanical module size 24 x 13.5 x 3 mm

@ANY900ARM-SC modules are fully integrated ultra low power solutions that contain all the digital and analog circuitry required for easily establishing secure Sub-1-GHz wireless connectivity. Based on Microchip’s innovative ARM Cortex SoC SAMR30G platform, the module combines optimized RF performance with maximum computing power. Either a standard U.FL connector (@ANY900ARM-SC-2) or RF-Pads (@ANY900ARM-SC-3) ensure utmost flexibility of external antenna adaptations and design-ins. Available as an option, a special ECDH crypto chip can be added, adapting asymmetric key agreement and ensuring highly secured data encryption.

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.
