What Is The True Frequency Band Sora Is Operating On RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Currently we have WBX RF integrate with Sora. SDK version 2.0. There is one thing we could not figure out.

    According to WBX specification, its working frequency range is from 50MHz to 2200MHz. These are not within 802.11a frequency band, which is 2.4GHz or 5GHz.

    What is the true frequency Sora is operating when we run the 802.11a sample program? Is there any way to find out? Because There are several license bands in the range from 50MHz to 2200MHz. We are not allowed to use those license bands.

  • If you are talking about the 802.11a baseband output, it is in zero intermediate frequency. The radio board will upward convert it to the RF frequency. So the true frequency depends on the specification and configuration of the radio board.

  • The working frequency can be modified using APIs defined in SoraSDK. You can directly contact Sora hardware vendor for more details, because the final configuration is performed in the firmware which is maintained by Sora hardware vendor.

  • Hello Qi,

    Thanks for your reply. But we still not very clear. Where can we look up the specification and configuration of the radio board?
