Wireless Radio Interface For Raspberry Pi

Converts wireless signals to serial input and serial output to wireless signal. When connected to Raspberry Pi it acts as an IoT hub to virtually unlimited wireless devices. 

Features:

  • Simple plug and go radio module for the Raspberry Pi
  • Communicates with our radio modules
  • TTL UART (/dev/ttyAMA0 on the Raspberry Pi)
  • Fits inside the Stealth Case from ModMyPi
  • Fits inside the PiBow from Pimoroni
  • Default 9600 Baud
  • Fitted with wire whip antennae
  • Raspberry Pi Pins used:
    • TXD
    • RXD

Technical Specs:

  • All devices are based on the high-performance RF transceiver based on the market-leading CC1100 SOC.
  • Wide operating voltage range of 2-3.6V makes the devices suited for battery power.
  • Current consumption: RX: 16.2 mA , TX: 15.2 mA. Deep Sleep : 0.005Ma (0.5 µA).
  • Up to 1KM line of sight. Short range (30M) penetration of walls and floors.
  • 128-bit AES encryption security.
  • Driver-less installation.
  • All the devices are highly configurable through the serial port or over the air using the LLAP messaging protocol specified in the manual. 
  • Base station communicates through serial port (TTL UART).
  • Communicates in ASCII clear text making it very easy to exchange data between devices over the air.
  • Supports point to point, point to multi-point, multi-point to point and multi-point to multi-point.
  • Virtually unlimited amount of devices can be deployed. 99,999 Personal Area Network ID’s, 10 channels per frequency and 7,744 Device ID’s per network. 
  • Super low power consumption allows devices to be use with a coin cell battery for long periods of time (up to 1 year depending on transmission rates).
  • Supports 6 frequencies (433 MHZ, 915 MHZ (default US & Canada), 868.3 MHZ (default Europe), 868 MHZ, 903 MHZ, 315 MHZ)
  • 10 channels per frequency.
  • 4 pins for communicating with external micro-controllers like Raspberry Pi and Arduino : Tx, Rx, GND, 3V3.
  • Battery monitor to keep track of power consumption.
