Digi-Key stocking Sigfox SDR dongle to speed up development

The Sigfox SDR dongle, designed for device and solution makers to speed up development and tests, is now available globally through Digi-Key Electronics, a global electronic components distributor. The SDR dongle allows for development of Sigfox devices independent from Sigfox public network coverage.

The Sigfox SDR dongle is the hardware platform on which to run the Sigfox Device Test Suite, a comprehensive device developer software toolkit:

  • The Network Emulator: Developed to test end-to-end and bidirectional data transport services between your device and your application

  • The Radio Signal Analyzer: Developed to test radio compliance with Sigfox Verified certification requirements

"SDR dongle will accelerate adoption of Sigfox technology for partners all across the world," says Laetitia Jay, Chief Marketing Officer at Sigfox. "We feel excited that Digi-Key now provides essential developer tools for quick starting, prototyping and fast developing scalable IoT solutions."

The Sigfox SDR dongle is a powerful and configurable radio Receiver and Transmitter emulating the Sigfox network. It is an esy 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.

“We’re excited to advance our role as an ecosystem partner of Sigfox and continue to increase our portfolio to support customers in their Sigfox journey,” said Robbie Paul, Director, IoT Business Development at Digi-Key. “With our global reach, the Sigfox SDR dongle will be available to everyone and will allow any device maker to start designing devices regardless of the radio zone they are in or where an R&D team is located.”
