January 5, 2016 – Linx, a Merlin, OR based developer and manufacturer of Internet of Things (IoT) Products and Solutions is pleased to announce its new Thread Border Router and Gateway. Linx will be showing its Thread-based Gateway and Border Router at CES in Las Vegas this January at the Thread booth (#70560) in the Sands Expo.

The Linx Thread Border Router and Gateway is a compact, high performance and cost-effective solution to bridge Thread networks to the cloud. It combines an IEEE 802.15.4 radio running the Thread protocol with an Ethernet interface. It manages all of the communications and protocols, so no software development is required.

Unlike competitive solutions, the system runs embedded firmware on an ARM microcontroller instead of costly microprocessors running bloated Linux-based operating systems. As a Border

January 5, 2016 – Linx, a Merlin, OR based developer and manufacturer of Internet of Things (IoT) Products and Solutions is excited to announce its new Raven™ Platform with the Thread networking protocol. The Raven™ Platform Thread-Based RF modules consist of an 802.15.4 RF transceiver paired with a microcontroller. Unlike competing solutions, Linx designed and optimized the Raven™ module specifically to run over proven 6LoWPAN / IP-based protocol stacks, such as Thread.

Linx will be showing its Thread-Based Raven™ at CES in Las Vegas this January at the Thread booth (#70560) in the Sands Expo.

Linx Technologies continues to add powerful options to its IoT ecosystem offerings with its Raven™ Platform. We believe that Thread will provide the best way to connect and control products in the home, and we are excited to present an

September 23, 2015 — Linx Technologies, a Merlin, OR based developer and manufacturer of Internet of Things (IoT) Products and Solutions, is pleased to introduce its new pre-certified remote control and sensor transceiver modules.

The HumRC™ Series transceiver is built on the popular Hummingbird platform, and is a frequency hopping spread spectrum (FHSS) transceiver designed for reliable bi-directional remote control and sensor applications.

Available today in 900MHz, the HumRC™ outputs up to 10dBm. This results in a line-of-sight range of up to 1600m (1.0 mile).

Low Cost Remote Control and Sensor Transceiver for the Internet of Things

The HumRC™ Series module is a completely integrated RF transceiver and processor designed for bi-directional remote control. It employs a fast-locking FHSS system for noise immunity and higher transmitter output power as allowed by government regulations.

June 29, 2015 — At below $10 in volume, the Hummingbird platform is the lowest cost complete wideband transceiver with microcontroller module on the market today. The HumDT™ Series transceiver is built on this platform and is designed for data transfer. Linx is pleased to announce the addition of the HumDT™ multi-channel low cost RF modules in 868 MHz. Having a common footprint with the 900 MHz frequency agile model, designers can now serve the North American and European markets with common footprint modules, saving design time and material costs.

Low Cost RF Modules in a Small Package

Like its namesake, the low cost Hummingbird modules are tiny. At 11.5mm by 14.0mm, the HumDT™ uses advanced system on chip (SoC) technology to minimize the footprint and the number of components. It is designed
