Product / Service Details


The iM980A-L is a compact and low-cost radio module that operates in the unlicensed 915 MHz band and combines a powerful Cortex-M3 controller with the LoRaWAN® transceiver of Semtech Corporation. A sensitivity of down to -137.5 dBm and a maximum output power of +17.5 dBm results in a link budget of more than 155 dB. 

Embedded Software:

The iM980A-L can be ordered with a pre-programmed embedded protocol stack: It enables Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWANs) for Internet-of-Things (IoT) and Machine-to Machine (M2M) applications and supports Activation By Personalization (ABP) or Over The Air (OTA) activation. It comes with the WiMOD LoRaWAN® HCI interface and allows easy configuration.

Additionally it is possible to integrate the application on the module’s MCU thanks to the Github open source code. For further information please contact
