Kim1 Module by Kinéis

KIM1 Module by Kinéis

KIM1 is a low-power transmitter module based on Argos-2 waveforms and fully certified by Kinéis, CLS subsidiary, and the French Space Agency, CNES.

It enables communication with all the Argos/Kinéis polar satellites to provide satellite connectivity, data collection, and Doppler localization (GPS-free) for IoT devices.

The use of Argos-RF signals and protocols ensures very low power consumption and a global coverage.

Use it with the KIM1 Shield in order to ease integration.

Argos chipsets provide the freedom to design and develop unique ways to connect with Argos.

ARTIC Chipset by AnSem

ARTIC Chipset by AnSem

The ARTIC (Argos Receiver Transmitter with Integrated Control) is an integrated low power small size Argos-2, Argos-3, and Argos-4 single-chip radio.

ARTIC implements a message-based wireless interface. For satellite uplink communication, ARTIC will encode, modulate and transmit provided user messages.

For downlink communication, ARTIC will lock to the downstream, demodulate, decode it and extract the satellite messages.
