We are really looking forward to being part of such a great and important event!

Embit is IN and you?

Embit launches the new EMB-LR1276S LoRa micro module

Embit is proud to announce EMB-LR1276S, the new sub-1GHz Embit’s wireless module that supports the LoRaWAN long range protocol.

It comes in a very small form factor (11.5 x 11.5 mm) providing a simple and easy way to add LoRa / LoRaWAN long range connectivity into existing products.

It is based on the new Microchip SAMR34 SiP, an ultra low power microcontroller combined with a UHF transceiver communication interface.

Its main features are:
– Output power: up to +14dBm (+18dBm with PA boost)
– Sensitivity: down to -136dBm
– Crypto unit to protect communication
– Extremely reduced power consumption (<1uA in XLP sleep)

EMB-LR1276S can communicate with other devices through a wide range of serial interfaces: UART, I2C and SPI ports, several digital and analog I/O ports useful for the management of external devices and interfaces.

EMB-LR1276 firmware can be easily developed thanks to the Embit SDK, which include the LoRa / LoRaWAN stack develoed by Microchip.

Electronica 2018 – Messe Munchen, Germany


From 13th to 16th November 2018 Embit joined Electronica 2018, the World’s leading trade fairs and conference for electronics in Munich. On that occasion Embit presented two new products: the brand-new EMB-LR1276S and the LoRaWAN mPCIe boards set/family (EMB-LR1301-mPCIe and EMB-LR1308-mPCIe).

EMB-LR1276S is the smallest module available on the market and it is based on the newest Microchip SAMR34 SiP which is the combination of a 32-bit ARM Cortex M0+ coupled with a sub-1GHz RF transceiver based on Semtech’s SX1276 which fully supports both 868/915 MHz.

On 31/01/2019 and 1/02/2019 Embit will officially present the EMB-LR1276S at The Things Conference in Amsterdam, one of the most important events about LoRaWAN technology in Europe. Embit is partner of the Things Conference.

– Embit is happy to be partner of the event –

The new EMB-LR1301-mPCIe 868/915 MHz mini PCI express multichannel LoRaWAN board is coming.

We are pleased to announce to modulo 1 okthe customers and who is interest about LoraWAN technology the release of the EMB-LR1301-mPCIe. This solution provides long range connectivity using ultra-long range spread spectrum communication and high interference immunity on the 868/915MHz radio band

EMB-LR1301-mPCIe offers up to 8 LoRa Channels in the 868MHz (or 915 MHz) frequency allowing it to receive up to 8 LoRa packets simultaneously and it is able to achieve a sensitivity of -137dBm and a RF output of +27dBm making it the ideal device to use in LoRaWAN gateways applications. It includes as well a GPS module.

EMB-LR1301-mPCIe has also the Listen Before Talk (LBT) capability giving to the user to share the same channel. When enabled, the device monitors channels continuously and transmit only if the channel is free. It includes as well a GPS module.

Please contact our sales representative for more information or visit the EMB-LR1301-mPCIe web page.
