TI's ultra-low power Sub-1 GHz LaunchPad development kit is first to be Sigfox verified in Japan

Over the past year, Sigfox, the world’s leading provider of a global communication solution powering the Internet of Things (IoT), and Texas Instruments (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) have been working to increase IoT deployments using the Sub-1 GHz spectrum. Continuing on that journey, today TI announced that its ultra-low power SimpleLink™ Sub-1 GHz CC1310 wireless microcontroller (MCU) LaunchPad™ development kit is now Sigfox verified in Japan. For more information about TI and Sigfox, visit www.ti.com/sub1ghz. By using the Sigfox network being deployed and operated in Japan by KYOCERA Communication Systems (KCCS), developers creating wireless sensor IoT devices can take advantage of the ultra-low power nature and advanced integration of the CC1310 wireless MCU as it includes an ultra-low power radio, integrated ARM® Cortex®-M3 MCU, sensor controller and low-power modes in a small 4x4 mm QFN package. By using the Sigfox device-to-cloud communication solution, developers can reduce the cost and effort to get sensor data to the cloud and TI’s Sub-1 GHz technology provides years of battery life for less maintenance and long range.”
