The RYLR330 is a LoRaWAN® Gateway Module with Mini-PCIe form factor based on Semtech®SX1302/SX1303, SX1250 and SX1261 for Listen Before Talk feature, which enables easy integration into an existing router or other network equipment with LPWAN Gateway capabilities. It can be used in any embedded platform offering a free Mini-PCIe slot with USB/SPI connection. Furthermore, GPS chip and Crypto Co-processor are integrated onboard.

This RYLR330 is a complete and cost-efficient gateway solution offering up to 10 programmable parallel demodulation paths, 8 x 8 channel LoRa® packet detectors, 8 x SF5-SF12 LoRa®demodulators, and 8 x SF5-SF10 LoRa demodulators. It is capable of detecting an uninterrupted combination of pockets at 8 different spreading factors and 10 channels with continuous demodulation of up to 16 packets

Electrical Requirements

Stressing the device above one or more of the ratings listed in the Absolute Maximum Rating section may cause permanent damage. These are stress ratings only. Operating the module at these or any conditions other than those specified in the Operating Conditions sections of the specification should be avoided. Exposure to Absolute Maximum Rating conditions for extended periods may affect device reliability.

The operating condition range defines those limits within which the functionality of the device is guaranteed. Where application information is given, it is advisory only and does not form part of the specification.


Absolute Maximum Rating

The limiting values given below are following the Absolute Maximum Rating System (IEC 134).

ESD_CDM     1000V Charged Device Model JESD22-C101 CLASS III


Although this module is designed to be as robust as possible, electrostatic discharge (ESD) can damage this module. This module must be protected at all times from ESD when handling or transporting. Static charges may easily produce potentials of several kilovolts on the human body or equipment, which can discharge without detection. Industry-standard ESD handling precautions should be used at all times.


Power Consumption

Version Mode Condition Max.
SPI Version Active mode (TX) The power of the TX channel is 26dBm and 3.3V supply. 410mA
SPI Version Active mode (RX) TX disabled and RX enabled 45mA
USB Version Active mode (TX) The power of the TX channel is 26dBm and 3.3V supply. 443mA
USB Version Active mode (RX) TX disabled and RX enabled 60mA



Power Supply Range

Input voltage at 3V3 must be above the normal operating range minimum limit to switch on the module.

Symbol Parameter Min Typical Max
3V3 Module supply operating input voltage 3V 3.3V 3.6V
