This is the RF Front End LoRa Gateway Module RAK831 with Semtech SX1301 baseband processor. This LoRa / LoRaWAN Gateway developer kit supports the 470MHz frequency band. RAK831 module can demodulate the LoRa signal even if the spreading factor of the sending Node is unknown.

Why Use RAK831 LoRaWAN Gateway Developer Kit?

RAK831 is an easily portable compact module ideal for developing the LoRa system. The FT2232 USB to SPI converter module supports quick development on the connected computer. You can also integrate the LoRa Gateway concentrator module easily to LoRa functions. RAK831 kit is ideal for a variety of applications including intelligent farming, smart grids, and other IoT applications. It works with many 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. 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
