LoRa1268F30-Mini is our latest LoRa front-end module. It belongs to the same series as our LoRa1268 and LoRa1268F30 modules. Therefore, they will have many similarities. Our company is worried that customers will not be able to distinguish the difference and buy the wrong product and return. Hereby, for these three products, write down the differences among them, hoping to help new and old customers.

Let's introduce these three products by the editor of NiceRF:

LoRa1268F30-Mini module

LoRa1268F30-Mini is a small size, low current, high power wireless transceiver module. It integrates Semtech’s SX1268 chip and an external LNA. It has increased 4dB on the basis of high sensitivity LoRa, its communication distance and receiving sensitivity All far exceed other FSK and GFSK solutions. At the same time, customers can also choose to add a band-pass filter to further improve the anti-interference ability.

Another feature of LoRa1268F30-Mini is low voltage. The wireless module is designed with an output power of 30dBm@4V, the receiving current is less than 11mA, and the sensitivity is as high as -148dBm. It is especially suitable for battery-powered scenarios. The ultra-long distance is also very suitable for remote industrial control applications.

 

LoRa1268F30 module

The LoRa1268F30 is an ultra-low-receiving, high-power wireless transceiver module that integrates Semtech's SX1268 chip. The solution uses LoRa spread-spectrum modulation frequency hopping technology, and its communication distance and receiving sensitivity are far superior to other FSKs. And GFSK's solution, and its multiple transmission signals occupy the same channel can be unaffected, making it highly resistant to interference, and is widely used in industries such as remote industrial control.

LoRa1268F30 has the characteristics of long transmission distance and low receiving current, which can be widely used in industries such as remote industrial control.

 

LoRa1268 module

The LoRa1268 wireless module uses Semtech's SX1268 device, ultra-low receive current and sleep current, and sensitivity of -148dBm. Built-in 64KHz crystal oscillator can wake up the microcontroller periodically under low power consumption. The module antenna switch is integrated and controlled by the chip, which saves the resources of the external MCU. The compact size and 22dBm (160mW) output power have great advantages in IoT and battery-powered applications.

Analyze according to the parameters of the above three products:

1. Chip

The three LoRa modules all use Semtech’s SX1268 chip.

2. Crystal

All three LoRa modules can be customized with 10ppm or TCXO industrial-grade crystal oscillators. You can visit our official website or call (0755-23080616) to contact our company.

3. Frequency

The working frequency of the LoRa1268F30-Mini module is 410-450 MHz, while the working frequency of the LoRa1268F30 and LoRa1268 modules is 433/490 MHz. When purchasing, be sure to pay attention to the frequency. Different operating frequencies have different applications in each country. For details, please refer to: https://www.nicerf.cn//news.aspx?cid=86&id=507

4. Output power and transmission distance

The greater the power of the module, the longer the transmission distance. The ultra long-distance transmission of LoRa1268F30-Mini and LoRa1268F30 modules is very suitable for remote industrial control applications.

5. Sensitivity

LoRa1268F30-Mini has increased 4dBm on the basis of high-sensitivity LoRa (-148dBm), so its communication distance and receiving sensitivity are far superior to other FSK and GFSK solutions.

6. Volume

LoRa1268F30-Mini and LoRa1268 modules: small size with high power output, it has great advantages in IoT and battery-powered application scenarios.

7. Receiving power consumption

The receiving power consumption of LoRa1268F30 and LoRa1268 are both <5mA. The lower the receiving power consumption of the module, the better it can play in battery-powered application scenarios.

8. Other

LoRa1268F30-Mini has a built-in LNA, which can output 1W at 4V.


The above is the sharing of the differences between LoRa1268, LoRa1268F30 and LoRa1268F30-Mini. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact NiceRF.
