Introduction

STM portfolio of Sub1GHz includes transmitters, transceivers and modules supporting a host of different applications in home and building automation (Smart Home and Smart City) as well as industrial process control (Smart Factory) and automated metering infrastructures (Smart Grid) or, more broadly, for the Internet of Things (IoT).

They support network operated in the license-free ISM and SRD frequency bands at 169, 315, 433, 868, and 915 MHz and several modulation schemes such as 2(G)FSK, 4(G)FSK, OOK and  ASK.

STM transceivers also support advanced technologies such as frequency hopping, auto-acknowledgment and antenna diversity to secure error-free data transmission even in harsh-environmental or challenging-logistical conditions

STM Sub-1GHz modules, operating in IMS and SMD band, are based on our transceivers and are equipped with antenna, xtal and balun.
Modules are available with or without the host microcontroller for enhanced flexibility. They provide a ready to use solution, fully RF, ETSI, IC and FCC certified, that helps minimize time to volume.

STM ICs and Module are supported by an extensive set of evaluation boards, software, firmware and application notes.

The ICs are:

  • S2-LP – transceiver (TX/RX)
    Band: 433, 868 and 915/920 MHz
    Modulation: 2(G)FSK, 4(G)FSK, OOK, ASK and -130 dBm.
    Consumption: 7 mA RX and 10 mA TX @ +10 dBm
    Ready for: Sigfox, Wireless M-Bus, 6LowPAN, ENOCEAN and IEEE 802.15.4g networking connectivity, simplifying the design of IoT applications and enabling remote sensors to directly connect to the cloud without the need for a local gateway.
    Frequency bands and order codes:
    – 430-470, 860-940 MHz (S2-LPQTR)
    – 470-512 MHz (S2-LPCBQTR)

    • The evaboard is:
      • STEVAL-FKI868V1 – Sub-1GHz transceiver development kit based on S2-LP
      • STSW-S2LP-DK – Evaluation SW package based on S2-LP
        Key Features
        * S2-LP DK GUI PC application supporting S2-LP device
        * S2-LP library and examples
        * SDK Eval NUCLEO-L1 LL (low level) API to manage the motherboard (NUCLEO-STM32L1) interfacing with the S2-LP daughterboard
        * STM32L1 HAL driver (STM32Cube)
        * Drivers for PC (USB Virtual COM + mass storage)

        After the installation the tools are in the:
        START > STMicroelectronics > S2-LP DK_x.x.x
        (x.x.x is the SW version, in my case 1.2.0)
        See below.



        The projects ready to use for STM32L1 and STM32L0 based on KEIL are in the directory:
        C:\Program Files (x86)\STMicroelectronics\S2-LP DK_1.2.0\Projects\Projects_Cube\S2LPLibrary_Examples\MDK-ARM



        This directory, often is blocked by the administrator of your PC.
        For use the examples copy the contents of the directory:
        C:\Program Files (x86)\STMicroelectronics\S2-LP DK_1.2.0

        into a new directory, for example XYZ.
        Now work in your directory XYZ.
      • STSW-S2LP-SFX-DK – Evaluation SW package for SigFox based on S2-LP
