RP2040 Based Range-Pi USB LoRa Stick Using Semtech SX1262 & SX1268

We’ve covered plenty of hardware with LoRa radio from gateways, to Arduino shields, tracker boards, and mini PCIe cards, but after reading an article on Hackster.io this morning, I realized we never wrote about any LoRa USB stick.

RangePi – previoulsy LoRa Stick – is an open source hardware USB dongle based on Semtech SX1262 & SX1268, and offered on SB Components at £20 with free delivery worldwide.

RangePi is low power-consuming, half-duplex dongle. It can wirelessly transmit data to long-distance. It is built-in high speed and low power-consuming RP2040 MCU and SX1262 & SX1268 modulation chipset. This chipset is applied with the forward error correction technique which greatly improves interference immunity and advances sensitivity.

Range-Pi USB LoRa Stick Specifications

  • Onboard RP2040
  • Serial Port Module - E22-900T22S1B/E22-900T22S1B
  • Power - 22dBm
  • Onboard 1.14" LCD
  • Voltage Level Translator(74HC125V)
  • Communication range up to 5 KM
  • Supports auto repeating to transmit longer
  • Low Power Consumption
  • Highly Secured
  • For Evaluating signal quality with the RSSI or "Received Signal Strength Indicator"
  • Wireless parameter configuration support
  • Fixed-point transmission support
