SAM R30 Ultra-Low Power MCU
+ 802.15.4 Radio SiP

The SAM R30 SiP is a single-chip ARM® Cortex®-M0+ based 32-bit RF microcontroller that incorporates an ultra-low power MCU with an 802.15.4 sub-GHz radio, providing multi-year battery life in a compact 5 × 5 mm package. The SAM R30 SiP delivers design flexibility and proven reliability all in a small package, making it well suited for connected home, smart city and industrial applications.

As the demand for battery-powered, wirelessly connected systems continues to rise, the low-power SAM R30 SiP meets the extremely power-conscious needs of these markets with features that extend battery life for multiple years. The SiP is built using the SAM L21 MCU which leverages a Cortex®-M0+ core, the most energy-efficient ARM processor available. The SAM R30 SiP features ultra-low power sleep modes, with wake from serial communication or General-Purpose Input/Output (GPIO) while consuming a mere 500 nA. 
With the ability to operate within the 769-935 MHz range, the SAM R30 SiP gives you the flexibility to implement a point-to-point, star or mesh network. Microchip helps you get started immediately with our free MiWi™ point-to-point/star wireless networking protocol stack. Mesh networking capabilities will be available soon. Nodes outfitted with the SiP can be positioned as far as one kilometer apart, with the ability to double the range in a star topology. When used in a mesh network, the SAM R30 SiP delivers reliable wide-area coverage for applications such as street lighting or wind and solar farms.
