The Lora1268F30 is the latest lora module from NICERF.It uses Semtech's SX1268 chip, which is the same product as the lora1268module. So, the question is, what is the difference between the lora1268 andlora1268F30 modules? Why do we develop the lora1268F30 module of the sameseries as lora1268?

First, let's takea look at the difference between the lora1268 and lora1268F30 modules. We putall the data parameters of the two lora modules in the table so that we candistinguish the differences more clearly.

From thetableabove , we can clearly see that the parameters of the two lora modules aremostly the same, but in the output power parameters, the output power of thelora1268F30 module 33dBm is greater than the 22dBm of the lora1268 module; thegreat power of the module is, the farther the transmission distance is, so thetransmission of the lora1268F30 module is much farther than the lora1268, butthe transmission distance of the lora module of 1.5W power can reach 10KM, butit is not common in the market.

The receivingpower consumption of the lora1268F30 module is <5mA, which is a very lowreceiving power consumption value. You may not have a very intuitive judgment.We take the power difference and the same is the front-end module of theloraF30 and the lora1268F30. The loraF30 power is compared. It is 1W, the powerof lora1268F30 is 1.5W, the receiving power consumption of loraF30 is <13mA,and the receiving power consumption of lora1268F30 is <5mA. By contrast, wecan clearly see that the receiving power consumption of the loraF30 is morethan double the power consumption of the lora1268F30.

The purpose ofdeveloping  the lora1268F30 is to creat amodule which is low-power consumption and high output power. It can provideusers with more choices.
