More About eRA Conenct2-Pi USB Dongles

This RF USB Dongle utilises LPRS’ proprietary easyRadio technology providing a simple wireless bridge between Raspberry Pi (Pi2Pi), a Raspberry Pi and a PC or any other device that supports USB serial communications. A bidirectional link is created with the easyRadio Advanced RF transceiver modules; no RF protocol software is required.

A greater range and lower power consumption can be achieved with these RF dongles compared to a similar Wi-Fi or Bluetooth device operating in the overcrowded 2.4GHz frequency band. Frequency, bandwidth, power output and data rate can (optionally) be configured to allow multiple devices to communicate free from interference from each other and any other RF devices.
Host devices can send and receive (half duplex) up to 180 Bytes of data per packet that will be seamlessly delivered and presented to other hosts within range. There is no need for any complicated ‘bit balancing’ or elaborate coding schemes. Easy Data In and Data Out!

FTDI FT232 USB IC.Linux & Windows drivers available.

Applications: RF Communications, Wireless, Sensing & Instrumentation.
