The LPRS Connect2 development kit offers a modular approach to system design for customers wishing to incorporate eRA modules in a wireless communication system. The Connect2 kit can be customer configured to meet individual project requirements. Starting with the development platform designers can add the specific modules required for evaluation, USB boards, antenna and USB cables etc.
The recently introduced advanced easyRadio range of eRA transmitters and transceivers incorporates the LPRS easyRadio software protocol and builds on the simplicity of use of previous generations of easyRadio modules by remaining true to the original brief of “reducing time to market by removing the complexity associated with the radio software development interface”
The eRA modules allow developers to change many of the parameters of the radio to suit application specific requirements including the ability to change the bandwidth of the radio from 150KHz down to 12.5KHz, which provides narrow-band performance on a wide-band budget.
Designed with back compatible pin configuration, current “easyRadio 02” users can upgrade to the “Advanced” versions as required and with free flash firmware upgrade tools from LPRS, new updates/features can be quickly programmed, making LPRS eRA a truly future proof wireless solution.
“Our latest advanced easyRadio modules offer designers a host of soft and firmware control options increasing its versatility greatly. We have introduced our new Connect2 development kit to enable designers to fully explore all these options on the bench before moving on to final design” Says John Sharples, Managing Director of LPRS” Our UK designed and manufactured “out of the box” wireless module business has been highly successful and positioned LPRS as a major player in the wireless module market and we expect a lot of interest in our development kit at this year’s Fortronic Forum. We will also be running a very interesting demonstration of easyRadio wireless using open source Arduino on our stand”
In addition to manufacturing the highly successful easyRadio Advanced (eRA) wireless modules in the UK, the full LPRS product range now includes, narrow band long range wireless modules from CDP, the IQRF range of wireless networking components, the IQVC range of visual control panels together with antenna, wireless key fobs and a wide range of sensor products.
The Fortronic RF & Wireless Design one day conference is the UK’s only technically focused forum specifically dedicated to wireless and intended for engineers involved in the design and manufacture of wireless products. The event will host discussions covering a wide range of topics specifically on wireless, wireless sensor and telemetering technologies from major suppliers and be accompanied by an exhibition.
