RAK831 LoRa LoRa/WANan Gateway Developer Kit is an RF Front End module. The hardware contains the Semtech SX1301 baseband processor. This LoRa / LoRaWAN Gateway developer kit has been programmed to support the 470MHz frequency band. RAK831 LoRa / LoRaWAN developer kit can demodulate the LoRa signal even if the spreading factor of the sending Node is unknown. This kit features the MAX-7Q GPS Module and accessories include the GPS antenna as well.

Why Should You Use RAK831 LoRaWAN Gateway Developer Kit?

RAK831 LoRa / LoRaWAN developer kit is a highly portable compact module. It is ideal for developing the LoRa system. The kit supports true antenna diversity or simultaneous dual-band operation. Any combination of spreading factor and intermediate frequency for up to 8 packets is possible. The FT2232 USB to SPI converter module lets you work out the development on the connected computer. You can also integrate the LoRa Gateway concentrator module easily to LoRa functions. RAK831 developer kit is ideal for multiple applications such as intelligent farming, smart grids, and other IoT applications. This kit is compatible with different host systems such as Raspberry Pi or other OpenWRT-based or WisCam. The processor on the host system can be an MCU or a PC. You can connect the system with RAK831 via the SPI or USB interface.
