These include the MM6104 and MM6108. The former supports 1, 2 and 4MHz channel bandwidth. The latter SoC supports 1, 2, 4 and 8 MHzbandwidth and is capable of delivering tens of Mbps throughput to support streaming HD video. These Wi-Fi HaLow SoCs provide 10x the range, 100x the area and 1000x the volume of traditional Wi-Fi solutions, Morse Micro claimed.

The MM6108 and MM6104 SoCs integrate the radio, PHY and MAC and offer data rates that range from tens of Mbps to hundreds of Kbps at the farthest range. The radio supports operation in sub-GHz ISM bands worldwide between 750 and 950MHz.

The MM6108 and MM6104 RF interface provides the option to use on-chip amplification for typical low-power, low-cost IoT devices, or an additional external PCB-mounted power amplifier (PA) or front-end module (FEM) for ultra-long-reach applications. The RF receiver utilizes a high-linearity low-noise amplifier (LNA).

The chips come in 6mm by 6mm QFN48 packages.

Evaluation kits, as well as samples of the MM6108 and MM6104 SoCs and modules, will be available to early access partners and key customers starting late July.
