Microchip Technology and IoT solutions provider Sigfox have introduced a fully integrated RF transceiver and kits for developing IoT solutions for use on the Sigfox network.

Powered by Microchip’s highly integrated ATA8520E, a low-power RF transceiver with an integrated AVR microcontroller, the new kits contain the first FCC-certified board that allows developers to easily connect to Sigfox’s long-range, two-way global IoT network.

The solution is available in two versions. Customers can either purchase Microchip’s Sigfox-certified ATA8520E as a standalone kit, designed primarily to test the technology, or as a kit combined with an Xplained Pro board, a solution for system-design purposes. Both are dedicated for Sigfox’s IoT network in the license-free ISM bands.

The solutions come complete with the Sigfox library, modulation, ID and PAC code and a security key enabling IoT developers to quickly get their designs to market.
