Product Details

6LoWPAN (IPv6 over Low-Power Wireless Personal Area Networks) refers to a communication protocol for transmission of IPv6 packets over energy-saving wireless networks. As a basis for radio communication here thestandard IEEE 802.15.4 (PHY and MAC) is served like it is also used at ZigBee and WirelessHART. Radio links can be realized in the frequency bands 868 and 915 MHz as well as 2.4 GHz. 6LoWPAN is specified by a working group of the IETF. There appropriate proposals have been created, for example, for the compression of IPv6 header (RFC6282). Together with appropriate routing procedures - which are also specified in the IETF - this technology permits the construction of meshed networks consisting of small, wirelessly communicating, low-power devices.Using appropriate gateways they can be integrated into the global IP network - a big step towards the "Internet of Things".

Tall package size: higher storage capacity
Small size for SMD mounting
1.8 – 3.8 V supply voltage
Ultra low power modes: - RX: 5.5mA
Sleep-Mode: 185nA
Output power:+14dBm
Powerful ARM Cortex-M3
128kB Flash/ 20KB SRAM
All Digital Peripheral Pins can be routed to any GPIO
Supported by the open source platform Contiki/ 6LoWPAN

The COUA module is a single embedded and cost-effective Sub-1-GHz radio module. With 5,5 mA, the module stands out due to a very low RX current consumption and an even lower sleep current. The radio module is supported by the open source operating system Contiki, which allows for rapid product development on the basis of the wide range of protocols and applications that Contiki offers. All available IOs are routed to the outside, so that various sensor and actuator applications can easily be realized.
