The mDot is a LoRaWAN® ready, Low-Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) module for 868 MHz SRD and 915 MHz ISM bands. It is capable of 2-way single-duplex communication across distances of up to 5 miles/8 km line of sight, deep into buildings, or within noisy environments*. It supports ARM® Cortex®-M4 processor, complete with mbed libraries for intelligence and remote device monitoring. By using LoRa technology, mDot simplifies deployment and local connectivity for Internet of Things (IoT) applications in North America and Europe. The mDot is FCC/IC/CE certified.

*Distance depends on conditions, configuration, antennas, desired throughput, and usage frequency. In dense urban environments, a typical range is 1-2 miles. In Europe, with a larger spreading factor, the range may exceed 5 miles.

Using mDots

mDots ship from the factory pre-loaded with custom firmware, which provides a serial AT command interface for configuring and using the mDot. During development, use the firmware to test LoRa transmissions and, during production, use these AT commands when controlling an mDot with a separate host processor.

Additionally, our LoRa API allows you use mbed to develop custom applications. With the LoRa API, you don’t need a separate host processor.
