Mouser now stocks the XCVR development board and reference design from Connected Development. Based on the LoRa SX126x Sub-GHz radio transceiver from Semtech, the XCVR development board and reference design simplifies the design process and decreases time-to-market for customers developing solutions in markets, including building management, smart agriculture, logistics, supply chain and industrial control.

The company's comprehensive layout and schematic files for the board supply customers with convenient LoRa implementation into end-product designs. Software drivers are provided with the design and are compatible with multiple microcontroller vendors, including Nordic Semiconductor. The board's software drivers include various things, such as LoRa Point to Point and LoRaWAN (LoRaMAC-Node and LoRa Basics Modem), to facilitate rapid software development.

"The collaborative effort between Connected Development and Semtech on the XCVR provides our customer base with the combined benefits of Semtech's next-generation technology and Connected Development's state-of-the-art engineering design," says Gregor Bleimann, Connected Development's vice president and general manager. "We are confident that implementing Semtech's SX126x into the XCVR development board and reference design enhances functionality and product design and furthers our wireless solutions. Customers will decrease their time-to-market with added confidence by leveraging this reference design for their products."
