eLichens, the specialist in the detection of environmental gases, has integrated the ISP4520 RF module by Insight SiP, the developer of ultra-miniature RF modules, into its Avolta connected Natural Gas Detector.

Grégoire Aujay, Vice-President, Research and Development at eLichens said: “Integrated into our Avolta connected Natural Gas Detector, the LoRa and BLE capabilities of Insight SiP’s ISP4520 RF module are crucial.

“This combination used in industrial and residential environments allows us to ensure large-scale deployments with reliable connectivity in our two markets, which are Europe and the USA, while preserving the very low energy consumption of our products as an essential asset.

“The pre-certified radio module was decisive in our choice of the module because it is a major asset that saved us time. We were also able to obtain ATEX certification for our Avolta product to prove its safe use and compliance in explosive atmospheres.”

With its combination of two leading IoT radio technologies in one miniaturised package, the ISP4520 RF module offers the long-range capability of LoRa for data transmission over distance, with the high-throughput flexible service of BLE for a more local connection that can be used to carry out configuration, commissioning, and update via smartphone or tablet applications. The ISP4520 includes an array of power saving features, allowing for multi-year coin-cell operation. The BLE part of the ISP4520 integrates the WLCSP nRF52832 chip from Nordic Semiconductor and the SX1262 LoRa transceiver from Semtech.
