STM32 LoRa Kit

Blog Post created by Sylvie Boube-Politano Employee on Nov 30, 2016

Developers, designers, new entrepreneurs, makers you  should all enjoy our low-cost development kit to build a large variety of prototypes, IoT products with LoRa Wireless LPWAN connectivity.

 

P-NUCLEO-LRWAN1 comes at $40 and provides the great combination of the ultra low power STM32L073 NUCLEO board - NUCLEO-L073RZ with the Semtech RF board based on the proven SX1272 LoRa transceiver -  I-NUCLEO-SX1272D

 

The STM32L073 MCU armed with the energy-efficient  Cortex®-M0+ core and  ultra-low-power features, provides an ideal host for devices such as utility meters, alarm systems, positioning devices, trackers, remote sensors. You can extend functionality by adding extra expansion boards, such for example  X-NUCLEO-IKS01A1 sensor board for motion, humidity and temperature sensing.

LoRa enables long-range communication with several advantages over conventional cellular connections, including lower power and cost. Versatile features include multiple communication modes, accurate indoor and outdoor location awareness, and native AES-128 security.

 

The new kit contains everything needed to build bi-directional end devices that comply with LoRaWAN™ version 1.0.1 and support class A and class C protocols. Devices can be activated using Over-The-Air Activation (OTAA) or Activation-By-Personalization (ABP). An application for LoRaWAN certification tests is included in the kit, and the I-CUBE-LRWAN LoRaWAN stack is available and posted at www.st.com/i-cube-lrwan.

 

Access to the STM32 ecosystem provides rich development resources, including STM32Cube tools and software packages containing sample code and Hardware Abstraction Layers (HALs). These allow porting to any of the almost 700 STM32 MCU variants that cover a wide range of performance, power, packages, and price points.
Developers will benefit from the familiar IDEs and ARM mbed™ online tools.

 

The low purchase price of the P-NUCLEO-LRWAN1 kit allows all engineers to enjoy a high-end LoRa development experience.

 

It is available NOW and can be purchased directly from st.com or through our distributors.
