   NANO-S100: The First Generation RPMA® Module By uBLOX

   We present you just announced uBlox’s first generation RPMA® Module.

   The Abbreviate RPMA® means Random Phase Multiple Access and this concept is a very suitable base for creating smart cities, under the road equipment controlling, telemetry and different sensing and control infrastructure matrix.

   The Device has ultimate parameters, as extremely Low power consumption in sleeping modes as low as 0.1 uA, allows creating of the independent & smart battery-powered infrastructure projects. The described device: Nano-S100 is based on RPMA® Radio with D-DSSS (Dynamic-Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum) modulation in 2.4 GHz, free of charge ISM band with its high selective – theoretical maximum of 177 dB Radio resource, which is suitable for significant distance coverage in building and underground installation, creating a simple star infrastructure topology of Random Phase Multiple Access enabled modules.   




Nano-S100 Main Features:

  • Using 2.4 GHz, free ISM Band,
  • The Radio Spectrum = 80 MHz,
  • Used Bandwidth when the device is working = 1 MHz,
  • Device has an ultra low-power consumption in Deep Sleep and Power Off Mode, assuring more than 10 years of battery operation,
  • Completely Secure design,
  • Reliable work based on Quality Of Service : Link-> QoS , Link-> ITU E.800 recommendation
  • System has a unique adaptation mechanism, which optimizes the influence of the surrounding environment interferences,
  • NERC / Critical infrastructure protection – CIP compliant.
  • Ultimate possibility for rapid broadcast FOTA – Firmware On-the-Air update, using the separate RF & TD channel.    
  • Global_Region_coverage_with_a_single_SKU – Global Roaming 
  • Communication Interface: 7-wire SPI – Serial Peripheral Interface with Handshake, 
  • Data Throughput – 100 kB per day for easy Broadcast FOTA updating the Module Firmware or updating the Application Software,
  • Reliability & Temperature range: Highly Reliable Radio module, working in whole Industrial Temperature range -40 to +85 degree Celsius.
