Designed for use in all available frequency bands, power limits and broadcast standards worldwide, the eRIC (easyRadio Integrated Controller) wireless module from LPRS provides IoT and other wireless control or communication system builders with an SoC fully integrated wireless controller. This enables a single device to be set to the local standard for legislation in the end user market.

The most common standards for ISM frequency bands are 433 and 868MHz for Europe and 315 and 915MHz for the USA. Coming into force in 2016, the 802.11.AH standard will move away from the current dependence on 2.4GHz devices. This allows designers to use longer range and more reliable sub 1GHz WiFi systems. eRIC modules are ready to support this when the standard goes live.

Providing system builders with a simple to integrate complete wireless communication solution, the eRIC modules are low-cost and feature-rich with a wide range of user options. They can be supplied preconfigured to operate as standalone modules or modified by the developer for end-user application programming and control functions. The modules meet ETSI and FCC standard requirements.

An AES 128 bit data encryption option provides secure over-air transmission, while current consumption as low as 32µA enables very low power operation for remote, battery powered sensor systems. Other advanced features include received signal strength indicator (RSSI), carrier detect and group ID. Supplied in a 20x15x5mm SMD package, the device is intended for embedded high-volume applications in the 'Smart' or 'IoT' arena including building and lighting control, security, home monitoring and medical products, vehicle and contents monitoring, renewable energy control and remote sensor systems.

“Offering designers the ability to set our new eRIC system-on-chip wireless controller for operation anywhere in the world greatly simplifies the design process and reduces procurement costs,” comments Barry Gillibrand, Managing Director, LPRS.
