Wave One is a low power IOT sub 1GHz sensor node, designed to operate for years on a small coin cell battery and solar power. The design is based around Texas Instrument's CC1310 wireless MCU capable of running a number of different RF protocols. It’s the size of a credit card with room to spare and has everything you would want to remotely measure temperature and humidity in large environments, where other RF technologies are inadequate. Examples are places like factories, the great outdoors, or any place that wifi and bluetooth just don't cut it. It’s capabilities are endless once you no longer have to rely completely on cellular network coverage.
Some Design Features
- 11 Configurable GPIO pins to add more to the Wave One sensor node.
- Temperature and Humidity over I2C
- Ambient Light measurements over I2C
- Coin Cell battery - 2023 Coin Cell
- DC Plug for Solar or other mW Energy Collector (2.1mm Inner, 2.5mm outer DC Jack).
- PCB Antenna - range varies based on application but we have tested consistently over 1000Ft line of sight at 256Kbps. (#Link to TI Range Calculator#)
- RTOS used to run power management software to maximize battery life.
- CC1310 Microprocessor
- Sub 1 GHz (Free ISM Band)
- 915MHz and 815MHz
- Works with Smart RF
- BQ25502 Energy Harvesting IC for power Management - Charges capacitor bank to run main task and uses battery backup remainder of the time.
- 11 GPIO outputs that can be configured to anything, ADC, UART, SPI, I2C…
- DC plug for Power or Solar Panel
- 3V Coin Cell battery holder (Panasonic 2023)
- Low power wireless sensor network
- Outdoor Sensor Monitoring
- Weather Station miles from power and normal connectivity
Create connected devices - like a light switch
Due to the high cost of low volume manufacturing this is a great way to prototype with CC11310 designs, if you create a product that you want to mass produce with these the cost of these boards at scale drops to about ~$20.
- Note that you will need more than one board to communicate with anything, so we recommend getting the CC1310 or CC1350 launchpad to both program and communicate with a single sensor for development.
A starter Kit is the combination of a CC1310 launchpad with a single Wave-One sensor node. This allows a user to connect to the launchpad and monitor sensor data.
