Many products today utilize a standard operating in the 2.4 GHz band such as Bluetooth, Zigbee of Wi-Fi. These standards and frequency band have their place, but they are far from the optimal solution for every project. Many products that use the 2. 4GHz band would benefit greatly from operating at a lower frequency, such as 433, 815 or 915 MHz. Several products have adopted the Sub-GHz band, but there is still a lot of untapped potential in product segments stuck at 2.4 GHz that would benefit from a lower frequency band.
We have 25 years of experience of developing in the Sub-GHz band. Our experience includes discrete hardware design using commercially available circuits, antenna design, protocol design and RF ASIC design. We have a mixed signal complete Sub-GHz transceiver IP block allowing us to efficiently create a custom ASIC with integrated Sub-GHz communication.

Sub-GHz frequencies are inherently better suited for many applications where low data rates (>1-10 Mbps) are used. The advantages come directly from physical laws.
Achieve Long Range (> 1 km) communication without relying on cellular technologies
Penetration of walls and ceilings allows reliable indoor communication without relying on tricks such as mesh networks and repeaters
Less attenuation due to atmosphere, foliage and non-reliance on RF reflection results in reliable extreme long range outdoor communication
Lower frequencies result in lower power consumption allowing longer battery life and/or a smaller battery
Sub-GHz allows both indoor and outdoor communication over a large area. One example of an application that greatly benefits from Sub-GHz technology is smart metering.
