Plug-and-Play, High-speed, Long-range Radio Modules from 100 MHz to 4 GHz

Doodle Labs has introduced a high-speed, long-range radio that has been optimized for SWaP (Space, Weight, and Power). The Smart Radio has been designed to simplify integration into Industrial IoT applications while providing the high performance of Doodle Labs’ proprietary BII Technology (Broadband for Industrial IoT) and powerful 2x2 MIMO communications. The full Smart Radio portfolio includes models that cumulatively cover the 100 MHz to 4 GHz frequency range.

The Smart Radio solution has been developed to meet the unique physical and performance requirements of mobile applications that need to transmit large amounts of data (e.g. video) over long distances.

Some examples of applications include:

  • Unmanned Aerial Systems (Drones)
  • Mobile Ground Robots
  • Mines and Construction Site Machines
  • Public Safety/Video Surveillance
  • Private Networks in Oil and Gas Fields
  • Wireless Ethernet Extension

Integration of the Smart Radio is sort of plug-and-play. It is a complete wireless modem, removing the need to connect to a separate CPU board, and utilizing an ethernet interface (USB interface available). The radios come preloaded with a customized version of OpenWrt, a widely-used open source Linux OS. Beta testers have completed integration of the Smart Radio into their systems in just a few hours.

The Smart Radio is the only device in the market that combines its high-performance in a very small form factor. 2×2 MIMO technology and 1W of transmit power to enable Tx distances exceeding 10 miles and data throughput exceeding 100 Mbps. MIMO leverages antenna diversity and RF reflections from the radio’s surroundings to reinforce reliability, improve throughput, and extend range. All of the hardware is contained in a space slightly larger than a matchbox (37x57x11 mm, 40 grams) and consumes small amounts of power (6W max, 1W sleep).

With the introduction of the Smart Radio, Doodle Labs now offers the industry’s widest range of high-speed, long-distance connectivity options between 100 MHz - 6 GHz. Moreover, with an agile development team, Doodle Labs is uniquely positioned to work with large OEMs and system integrators to customize existing products to meet specific requirements.
