November 13, 2018 - Mouser Electronics, Inc., the industry's leading New Product Introduction (NPI) distributor with the widest selection of semiconductors and electronic components, announces a global distribution agreement with Sigfox, the world's leading Internet of Things (IoT) services provider. Through the agreement, Sigfox Sens'it Discovery solution and SDR dongle are now available at Mouser.

Sens'it Discovery is a customizable IoT solution that combines the Sens'it 3 device with the sensit.io application, along with Sigfox connectivity. With battery life of up to one year depending on use and frequency of messages, the device incorporates six different sensors (thermometer, hygrometer, light meter, accelerometer, magnetometer, reed switch) and a central button for multiple use cases. The device works in any of the 53 countries and regions where Sigfox has coverage and can be configured to communicate in multiple areas with different Sigfox Radio Configurations (RC) RC1, RC2, RC3, or RC4. Sens'it offers a dedicated software development kit (SDK), which allows developers to create their own firmware, rewrite the Sens'it behavior, and use it for their own use case. This makes Sens'it device a powerful and versatile device for anyone who wants to start with the IoT.

The Sigfox SDR dongle is a powerful and configurable radio receiver and transmitter that emulates the Sigfox network. The USB device works for all Sigfox Radio Configurations and provides an easy way for device and solution makers to speed development and tests, working without any network coverage. Engineers can use the SDR dongle with the Sigfox Device Test Suite. It includes a comprehensive device developer software toolkit that contains Sigfox Network Emulator for testing end-to-end and bidirectional data transport services between the device and application, along with a Radio Signal Analyzer for testing radio compliance with Sigfox Verified certification requirements.
