The RYZ024A wi-fi module from Renesas helps Cat-M1 and Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) web connectivity with out the necessity for a gateway. Additional, the RYZ024A consumes simply 1 µA in power-saving mode, considerably lower than competing merchandise in keeping with the producer.
Whereas Cat-M1 and NB-IoT are each Low Energy Huge Space Community (LPWAN) applied sciences, NB-IoT makes use of solely a portion of the out there spectrum, making it extra energy environment friendly. NB-IoT additionally gives wonderful protection depth, together with underground and in enclosed areas.
The RYZ024A helps prolonged discontinuous reception (eDRX) and has an prolonged voltage vary from 2.2 V to five.5 V, helpful for battery-powered purposes. To make sure protection on the mobile community’s edge, in addition to deep indoor environments, the module supplies two power-amplifier output ranges: 20 dBm and 23 dBm.
The RYZ024A is obtainable at this time with Cat-M1 firmware and can be software program upgradeable to help dual-mode Cat-M1 and NB-IoT subsequent yr. Renesas plans to supply a Pmod growth package to simply connect with Renesas MCUs. The package will include the fully-certified RYZ024A module, LTE antenna, SIM card, and fast begin information, together with a software program improve.
