Mouser Electronics Signs Distribution Agreement with Astrocast to Supply IoT Satellite Components

Astrocast operates a global nanosatellite IoT network, offering services in industries such as smart agriculture, infrastructure, maritime, environment and utilities. The Astrocast network enables companies to monitor, track and communicate with remote assets via satellite, utilising their Astronode S module, available from Mouser Electronics.

The Astronode S is a satellite communication module with a serial interface and a compact, surface mount form factor. The device is optimised for low-energy operation, making it ideal for highly integrated, battery-powered IoT systems. The Astronode S module enables the monitoring and control of devices with bidirectional satellite communication for up to 10 years off a single battery.

Also available from Mouser is the Astronode Patch antenna, a miniaturised antenna designed for communication with Astrocast's IoT satellites in low earth orbit (LEO). The Patch is manufactured on a high-permittivity ceramic substrate, resulting in a reduced antenna footprint while maintaining good RF performance at the operating frequencies of the Astrocast network in L band. The antenna's extremely low profile allows for seamless placement and device integration.

Mouser will also be offering the Astronode S+, a certified, ready-to-install industrial satellite communication device based on the Astronode S and an Astronode Patch antenna. The Astronode S+ is designed to quickly and easily connect to applications via the full Astronode S digital interface or via RS232, both available on the industrial-grade board-to-cable connector. No resources are required for electronic and RF design, enabling a short time to market. This device features a small form factor allowing discrete installations.
