B-L072Z-LRWAN1
STM32L0 Discovery kit LoRa, low-power wireless

The B-L072Z-LRWAN1 LoRaDiscovery kit is a development tool to learn and develop solutions based on LoRaand FSK/OOK technologies. This Discovery kit features an all-in-one open module CMWX1ZZABZ-091 (by Murata).

The module is powered by an STM32L072CZ and an SX1276 transceiver. The transceiver features the LoRalong-range modem, providing ultra-long-range spread spectrum communication and high interference immunity, minimizing current consumption. Since CMWX1ZZABZ-091 is an open module, user has access to all STM32L072 peripherals such as ADC, 16-bit timer, LP-UART, I2C, SPI and USB 2.0 FS (supporting BCD and LPM).
