Now being shipped by authorised distributor Mouser Electronics, is the FGH100M Wi-Fi HaLow module from Quectel.

The module provides Sub-1 GHz long-range wireless data transmission for both indoor and outdoor Internet of Things (IoT) applications, with low power consumption and ten times the range of traditional Wi-Fi for industrial automation, mobile devices, smart agriculture, smart cities, smart buildings, point-of-sale applications and more.

The module utilizes the IEEE 802.11ah wireless networking protocol, also known as Wi-Fi HaLow, to operate in the license-exempt Sub-1 GHz range between 850 MHz to 950 MHz.

This enhances the unique requirements of IoT applications by expanding smart networks with 1/2/4/or 8 MHz channel width, 21 dBm maximum output power, encryption algorithms, and a 32.5 Mbps theoretical maximum transmission rate.

Signal coverage enables users to control IoT devices in a radius of up to 1 km.

The module's ultra-compact size (13.0 mm x 13.0 mm x 2.2 mm) optimizes end-product size and design cost while fully meeting the demands of size-sensitive applications, with a durable and robust surface-mount LGA package to ensure reliable connectivity and easy embedding into size-constrained applications.

An operating temperature range of -30°C to +85°C and interfaces (including UART, SPI, I2C, SDIO 2.0, and PWM) make it an easy choice for the most demanding IoT applications.
