The FG25 is the ideal SoC (system on chip) for long-range, low-power transmissions, capable of broadcasting up to 3km with minimal data loss in dense, urban canyon environments when coupled with the Silicon Labs EFF01 Front End Module. It is also the first SoC in Silicon Labs’ portfolio to support the orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) modulations introduced in Wi-SUN Field Area Network (FAN) 1.1. OFDM supports high data bandwidth of up to 3.6 Mbps. With the higher data rates, the FG25 SoC enables the large networks needed by smart cities where the nodes can number in the thousands.
We’re also pleased to announce that we have been certified by the Wi-SUN Alliance for the PHY layer of the FAN 1.1 profile. Customers can leverage this certification to lower the burden placed on them as they design Wi-SUN FAN 1.1-complaint devices.
