Compact, Low-Power, Chirp Radio and Sensor Module - Inpixon Swarm Chirp

May 24, 2022

The Inpixon Swarm Chirp (formerly swarm bee LE V3 ) is a 2.4 GHz Chirp Spread Spectrum module, suitable for a variety of IoT implementations.

The small 22 x 23 mm form factor, low power consumption, long-range transceiver including embedded accelerometer and temperature sensors, along with a low external component requirement, make the Inpixon Swarm Chirp an ideal choice for personnel, equipment and asset tracking products, where indoor or outdoor location sensing is critical.

Relative position is derived via the module-to-module direct ranging feature, without the need for additional infrastructure. Tags based on the Inpixon Swarm Chirp when deployed with the nanoANQ anchors and IoT Platform, provide the most comprehensive Real Time Location System (RTLS) on the market today.

With a built in on-board microcontroller (MCU), a 2.4 GHz RF Chirp transceiver, 3D accelerometer and temperature sensors, and universal asynchronous receiver/transmitter (UART), the Inpixon Swarm Chirp module drastically cuts the time-to-market. Just add a battery, antenna and a housing, and it is market ready. It also comes with a complete API command set eliminating firmware implementation needs.

The Inpixon Swarm Chirp can be built into wearable IoT devices ranging from wristbands and visitor badges to belt clips and mining helmets. They can also be integrated into tags that are affixed to assets such as heavy mining equipment, forklifts, pallets, medical equipment, or theft-prone items. With four different energy saving modes, the Inpixon Swarm Chirp module easily adapts to different requirements to extend battery life.
