LoRa SX1278 433MHz 0 - 3000m

This wireless transceiver is based on SX1278 from SEMTECH. It adopts LoRa spread spectrum technology, with this technology the transmitting distance and penetration ability of the module improved more than 1 times compared with traditional FSK. The module features FEC(forward error correction) algorithm, which ensure it's good anti-interference ability.
