The RAK4630 module delivers a powerful Nordic nRF52840 MCU with BLE 5.0 paired to the latest LoRa® transceivers from Semtech, the SX126x series.
The module also includes a temperature-controlled crystal oscillator (TXCO) for correct operation across a wide range of temperature and bandwidth requirements as well as multiple communication interfaces including UARTs, I2C, SPI, ADC, USB and GPIOs.
The module complies with Class A, ClassB, Class C of LoRaWAN 1.0.3 specifications, and it also supports LoRa Point to Point (P2P) communications. The module is suitable for various applications that require long-range data acquisition and low power consumption, The two RF communication characteristic of the module (Lora® + BLE) makes it suitable for a variety of applications in the IoT field, such as home automation, sensor networks, building automation, and IoT network applications.
You can configure the mode and operation of the RAK4630 module using RAK4630 AT Commands via a UART interface or over BLE. Also, it offers low-power features that are very suitable for battery-powered applications.
The AT command firmware of the RAK4630 is based on our RUI3. You can as well write your own firmware using our powerful RUI3 API.You can directly interface sensors and other external peripherals to it without needing an additional MCU. On top of that, RAK4630 can be interfaced to an external host MCU using AT commands via USB, UART, or BLE connection.
