FAQ

What is Laird Connectivity's product lifecycle EOL and PCN policy?

Laird Connectivity is committed to the long-term supply of all its standard embedded wireless modules and packaged products. Laird Connectivity’s products are specifically designed to meet the needs of the industrial and medical markets, which typically require 7 – 10 years product lifecycle. Although Laird Connectivity can’t guarantee that a component used in our products will not be obsoleted and cannot be reasonably substituted, Laird Connectivity can assure customers we will continue to sell our product when we have customer demand and can obtain the necessary components to build our products.

View our full policy here. 

Can I get the source code for the Laird Connectivity application?

Source code for the module can be purchased through a design license. Contact Laird Connectivity sales for more details.

Can I write my own code in the module?

Yes, customers can write their own code in the module.

Can the Laird Connectivity application be customized?

Yes, the Laird Connectivity application can be customized. Contact Laird Connectivity sales for more details.

Does the module support AT commands?

The module supports a protocol very similar to AT commands. It is a binary packet protocol, which is described in the "Host Protocol Guide."

Can I interface to the module using SPI or IIC?

The only supported interface is UART. If SPI or IIC is required this could be developed through a design services contract.

What antennas can I use with the module?

The answer to this question depends on if you plan on using the modular certification of the module. If you want to use the modular certification you need to use one of the antennas that the module was certified with. Consult the datasheet, or product webpage to determine which antennas the module was certified with. If none of the certified antennas meet your requirements, another antenna may be used, however the modular certification will NOT be valid. The new antenna will need to be tested for EMC compliance. Contact Laird Connectivity’s EMC Test Services to learn more about this process and how we can help.

Can I substitute antennas? For example can I use another dipole antenna instead of the exact model a module was certified with?

Yes, this is possible if:

  1. The peak gain of the alternate antenna is less than or equal to the original antenna, and
  2. The antennas are the same type.

There are some cases that are not black and white. It is the customer's responsibility to collect and retain the appropriate and accurate test data traceable to NIST standards for the alternate antenna. Please contact Laird Connectivity to discuss any questions.
