@ANY900ARM-SC USB Dongle

A high security plug-and-play USB gateway for IEEE 802.15.4 wireless networks. Based on @ANY900ARM-SC-3 module for European, Chinese, Japanese, and North American Sub-1 GHz band, the gateway boasts exceptional transmission characteristics and out-of-the-box infrastructure connectivity to IEEE 802.15.4 based networks.

Mechanical module size 53.5 x 17 x 5 mm

@ANY900ARM-SC USB dongles are reliable, host-powered gateway solutions based on the @ANY900ARM-SC-3 modules. Using the state-of-the-art ARM Cortex controller and the robust and popular Microchip/Atmel hardware platform, optimal RF characteristics go along with a maximum of computing power. SMA antenna connector ensure maximum flexibility of external antenna adaptations for a wide range of use cases. Optionally, a special ECDH crypto module can be used to realize asymmetric key agreement and provide highly secure AES data encryption on demand. The on-board UART chip facilitates easy serial connection setup 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.

Ensure 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 USB dongle’s impressive feature set, designing ambitious wireless IoT structures becomes a breeze.
