Sigfox SDR dongle is an USB device associated to a Software package that emulates the Sigfox network.
It is intended solely for product or software designers for use in a research and development setting.
The Sigfox SDR dongle is a powerful and configurable radio Receiver and Transmitter emulating the Sigfox network. It is the easiest way for device and solution makers to speed up development and tests, without the need for network coverage and for every country’s radiofrequency configuration.
The Sigfox SDR dongle is the hardware platform on which to run the Sigfox Device Test Suite, a comprehensive device developer software toolkit:

The breakout BRKWS01 is a very small footprint SigFox breakout board based on the Wisol SFM10R1 module (EMEA Region). This board will enable you to integrate and use the SigFox LPWan network into your IOT project design, providing simple data transmission feature.
Thanks to the small dimension of the SFM10R1 Wisol module, an ultra-small foot-print breakout board design was possible.
The design of the breakout allows versatile usages from the development of your prototype to the mass production of your project. Indeed, the layout of input/output pin is such that you can use the standard module features with the breakout board positioned vertically as a Single Inline Package module (SIP). Therefore, the integration into your PCB design is possible and facilitated.
The SigFox network allows sending 12 bytes messages long.
A credit of sending 140 messages per day and receiving 4 messages per day is included with the card.
All inclusive Kit:
The module is controlled with serial AT commands sent on TX/RX pins.
