Telecom Design’s TD1207 devices are high performance, low current SIGFOXTM gateways. The combination of a powerful radio transceiver and a state-of-the-art ARM Cortex M3 baseband processor achieves extremely high performance while maintaining ultra-low active and standby current consumption. The TD1207 device offers an outstanding RF sensitivity of – 126 dBm while providing an exceptional output power of up to +14 dBm with unmatched TX efficiency. The TD1207 device versatility provides the gateway function from a local Narrow Band ISM network to the long-distance Ultra Narrow Band SIGFOXTM network with no additional cost. The broad range of analog and digital interfaces available in the TD1207 module allows any application to interconnect easily with the SIGFOXTM network. The LVTTL low- energy UART, along with the numerous GPIOs can control any kind of external sensors or activators. Featuring an AES encryption engine and a DMA controller, the powerful 32-bit ARM Cortex-M3 baseband processor can implement highly complex and secure protocols in an efficient environmental and very low consumption way.
