AE090 Evaluation Kit
AM090 Wireless Meter-Bus Narrow-Band
Multi-Channel 868 MHz Radio Modem/ Module
© AMIHO Technology Ltd 2014 – This information is subject to change
The AE090 Wireless Meter-Bus evaluation kit provides
a demonstration and development for EN13757-4 and
low-power wireless communications. It uses the
AM090 AMIHO compact modem which is the first of a
family of narrow-band multi-channel sub-GHz modems
that feature Freescale’s Kinetis ® family of ARM
Cortex based MCUs. It is designed specifically for
Wireless Meter-Bus, but is also suitable for other ISMband applications.
The kit includes the hardware and software required
for the user to evaluate the use of the AM090 in a
variety of end applications. It also features the AM092
USB stick modem for easy PC/terminal end
applications such as dataloggers.
The AM090 has a 20mW transmission power output, and
has low-operating power using a highly integrated, costeffective single package solution for sub-1 GHz applications
with built-in ARM ® Cortex M0+ CPU. Using the AMIHO
Wireless Meter-Bus software stack, it is driven by an AT
command set. It also features a binary API, allowing unused
resources in the processor to be available for user
applications.
Additional technical information and software is available
from AMIHO to assist the user in developing their end
application.
