The Core Advantage of Nano Series

The Nano series’ Lora antenna offers superior performance in various environments, including near the human body, due to its special design that minimize signal degradation and maintain efficient communication. In contrast, most other antennas currently available experience significant performance degradation when placed near the human body, as evidenced by a marked shift in resonant frequency and a substantial increase in VSWR, making them less suitable for wearable wireless devices.

The Nano Series devices are engineered to be a portable and durable solution for outdoor adventures such as hiking, piloting, skiing and more. They are designed to strike a balance between RF performance, size, ruggedness, and power efficiency, providing users with a reliable solution in various outdoor environments.

Nano G1 Explorer

The Meshtastic Mesh Device Nano G1 Explorer represents a significant upgrade to the Nano G1, incorporating the latest RF technologies from B&Q Consulting. The Nano G1 Explorer features a new internal wideband Lora antenna, which supports frequencies from 815 Mhz to 940 Mhz. The wideband antenna, combined with an optimized wideband Lora RF frontend circuit, enables the Nano G1 Explorer to work with the majority of regions’ LoRa frequency bands around the world without the need for antenna changes. The design of the device also takes into account the potential effect of the human body on its antenna performance, ensuring optimal RF performance even when carried in a pocket.

The upgrades are summarized below

RF Upgrades [ More Technical Details ]

  1. Nano G1 Explorer features a new internal wideband Lora antenna with supports for frequencies from 815 Mhz to 940 Mhz. The optimized wideband Lora RF frontend circuit provides the ability to cover majority of regions in the world without changing the antenna.
  2. The device has a new internal GPS antenna that significantly reduces GPS lock time compared to the Nano G1.
  3. Lora transceiver has been upgraded from SX1276 to SX1262, resulting in an increase in the maximum TX power from 20 dBm to 22 dBm.
  4. SX1262 circuit includes a TCXO (+-1.5 ppm) for improved frequency accuracy.
  5. GPS module can be set to a low-power mode with the GPS physical switch.

Other Upgrades [ More Technical Details ]

  1. Enhanced message notification circuit with the option of LED or Buzzer, configurable through a physical switch.
  2. Physical power switch for easy turn on/off of the system.
  3. Replaceable OLED screen with a FPC connector.
  4. Internal Li-Polymer Battery Charger , an optional 3.7V 603450 JST 1.25mm Rechargeable Li-Polymer Battery could be installed (Battery is NOT Included) [ Battery Information ].
  5. Buck-boost converter, could provide stable 3.3V to the system even the Li-Polymer battery voltage drops as low as 2.5V. Supply voltage stability is very important to ensure that the performance of RF circuits meets design expectations.
