Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading supplier of analog and mixed-signal semiconductors, today introduced the SX1238 to its long range transceiver platform. The SX1238 is the first device available to fully integrate transceiver and front-end module into a single package creating an ideal solution for smart metering applications such as water, gas and electric meters targeting WMBus, 802.15.4g, WiSUN, and Zigbee NAN. The SX1238 is an ideal complement to Semtech’s long range LoRa™ technology which has positioned Semtech as leader for machine-to-machine (M2M) and internet of things (IoT) solutions and infrastructure.
The highest output power available in most integrated transceivers is +20dBm or 100mW. In most smart metering solutions, manufacturers will include a separate front-end module (FEM) to boost the output power and increase the range and performance of the solution. The SX1238 is the first device to fully integrate the FEM and transceiver into a single package optimizing size and performance. Output power of +27dBm is typically viewed as the optimal tradeoff between range and battery lifetime. Most applications targeting long range and battery operation such as water and gas meters utilize +27dBm transmit or output power.
The SX1238 supports GFSK, FSK, GMSK and OOK modulation and is designed to support WMBus, IEEE 802.15.4g (SUN), WiSUN, Zigbee NAN, FCC 15.247, EN 300-220 as well as other worldwide RF standards and regulations.
“Delivering the longest range and the most robust link performance for the lowest power is the key focus for Semtech’s Wireless Product Line. The SX1238 reinforces this position by delivering an integrated solution with optimal range and battery lifetime tradeoffs,” said Hardy Schmidbauer, Semtech Director of Wireless Products.
