The iC280A concentrator module enables high-performance LoRa® gateway solutions or retrofit existing routers with 2.4 GHz LoRa® gateway capabilities. In mini PCIe form factor based on Semtechs sx1280 chipset, this radio concentrator allows robust communication between a LoRa® gateway and a huge amount of LoRa® end-nodes spread over a wide range of distance.
The iC280A is able to receive up to 3+1 LoRa® packets simultaneously sent with different spreading factors and also on different channels. This unique capability allows to implement innovative network architectures advantageous over other short range systems.
The concentrator can be integrated into any embedded platform with a free mini-PCIe slot and capable of providing enough power, as a complete RF front end. In combination with an embedded Linux board and the HAL software from Github a complete gateway can be set up easily.
All available software, firmware and documentation can be found and downloaded from the open source project LoRa-net provided by Semtech® on Github.
