Based on the characteristics of sub-GHz signal, Unicmicro introduces the UMICLINK reference solution featuring star network topology, which allows the secondary development by customers to bring the project into reality in a short time. The network scale of the reference solution is 200 uplink and downlink nodes, supporting ML non-power-saving mode and S power-saving mode, and the communication distance between gateway and nodes is up to 1,000 m (10 Kbps).

The gateway reference design offers a WAN concentrator based on private wireless protocol, with RF channel set at the center frequency of 433 MHz (configurable within 200 MHz–1050 MHz). It can freely network with terminal modules and communicate with servers through wireless protocol.

The chips developed by Unicmicro used in the solution include the high-performance industrial real-time controller chip UM3243F (as gateway master controller) and the sub-GHz wireless MCU UM2080F32 (as gateway communication link processor and sub-node).
