21-03-2024 | Mouser Electronics | Industrial

Mouser has announced a global distribution agreement with Morse Micro. The company now stocks Morse Micro's long-range, ultra-low-power Wi-Fi HaLow modules and development platforms through this agreement.

Morse Micro's comprehensive portfolio includes the industry's smallest, fastest and lowest power Wi-Fi HaLow SoCs and modules, supplying 10x the range, 100x the coverage area and 1000x the volume of traditional Wi-Fi solutions. Developed specifically for the IoT, Wi-Fi HaLow operates in the sub-GHz frequency band, delivering an optimal combination of extended range, power efficiency, long battery life, superior penetration of barriers, large network capacity, and advanced security. Targeting commercial, residential, and industrial IoT markets, these solutions are perfect for access control, security cameras, industrial automation, and retail and mobile device applications.

These products include the MM6108-MF08651-US Wi-Fi HaLow module. This fully integrated Wi-Fi HaLow module delivers long-range, low-power consumption, superior RF performance and features the company's MM6108 Wi-Fi HaLow SoC. The module simplifies Wi-Fi HaLow implementations by using an integrated PA, LNA and a transmit-receive switch (T/R). The module is FCC-certified for operating on frequencies between 902MHz and 928MHz, attaining a maximum data rate of 32.5Mbps. The module is ideal for transitioning from previous RF technologies and supports the latest WPA3 security protocols for secure, long-range applications.

The MM6108-EKH03 Wi-Fi HaLow development platform, also available from Mouser, supports a Linux SDK based on OpenWrt to deliver seamless connectivity through various applications and software for secure and efficient development. The platform features Ethernet and USB ports to serve as a Wi-Fi HaLow to Ethernet or USB adapter. The built-in web-based configuration wizard makes configuration and operation truly frictionless.

The Linux-based MM6108-EKH01 Wi-Fi HaLow development platform simplifies evaluation with a versatile set of interfaces, including USB-A for console access, Ethernet ports, and a Micro-HDMI port for display. It offers further expansion capabilities, permitting the addition of a camera module, which improves its functionality.
