The multi-band, low-power radio module enhances IoT development with versatile connectivity and meets international certification standards for global deployment.


Murata has introduced its innovative Type 2GT module, a multi-band, low-power radio (LoRa®) module that significantly advances IoT device development with its versatile wireless connectivity. This integrated module distinguishes itself by providing a holistic solution that meets the intricate requirements of international certification standards, easing deployment across various global regions and industries.

The compact Type 2GT module, measuring 9.98 x 8.70 x 1.74mm, features a robust design with a PCB encased in a metal housing and configured as a land grid array. It incorporates several high-performance components such as Semtech’s LR1121 RF transceiver IC, a thermally compensated crystal oscillator (TCXO), a secondary 32KHz crystal, an RF switch, and a matching network, ensuring optimal frequency precision and consistent operation in different environments. For device designers, this means simplified PCB designs, faster market entry, and lower development costs due to easy integration and a streamlined certification process.

Supporting various frequency bands, including sub-GHz bands, the 2.4GHz ISM band, and the 2.1GHz satellite communications S-band, the Type 2GT module offers flexibility and scalability for diverse IoT applications. These applications range from smart agriculture and industrial and environmental sensing to building and home automation. It also caters to sectors like asset tracking, utility metering, and control toys and drones. Including the 2.4GHz ISM band facilitates higher data rates and a uniform channel plan worldwide, also helping designers circumvent the duty-cycle restrictions of sub-GHz frequencies in Europe.

The Type 2GT module meets European CE, American FCC, Japanese TELEC, and Canadian IC standards, allowing designers to leverage module RF test reports across various certification bodies. This standardization significantly reduces compliance obstacles, encouraging innovation within the IoT ecosystem to benefit users in diverse geographic regions.

“We are thrilled to witness Murata’s strategic expansion with their cutting-edge, third-generation multi-band LoRa® modules,” said Carlo Tinella, Senior Product Marketing Manager at Semtech.
