AX−SIGFOX
COMMAND INTERFACE
General Information
When using Deep Sleep mode, keep two things in mind:
Everything is turned off, timers are not running at all and all
settings will be lost (use AT$WR to save settings to flash
before entering Deep Sleep mode). Out−of−band messages
will therefore not be sent. The pins states are frozen in Deep
Sleep mode. The user must ensure that this will not result in
condition which would draw a lot of current.
The chapter “Command Interface” is a documentation of
the AT−Command set for devices which do not have an
API−interface. To see whether the device is capable of
receiving AT−Commands, please refer to chapter “Part
Numbers”. If the device has been shipped with the
API−Interface, please refer to the AX−Sigfox SOFTWARE
MANUAL for an introduction on how to setup a project and
how to use the API−Interface.
AT Commands
Numerical Syntax
hexdigit ::= [0−9A−Fa−f]
hexnum ::= “0x” hexdigit+
decnum ::= “0” | [1−9] [0−9]*
octnum ::= “0” [0−7]+
binnum ::= “0b” [01]+
bit
::= [01]
optnum ::= “−1”
frame
::= (hexdigit hexdigit)+
uint
::= hexnum | decnum | octnum | binnum
uint_opt ::= uint | optnum
Serial Parameters: 9600, 8, N, 1
The AX−Sigfox uses the UART (pins UARTTX,
UARTRX) to communicate with a host and uses a bitrate of
9600 baud, no parity, 8 data bits and one stop bit.
Power Modes
Command Syntax
A command starts with ‘AT’ (everything is case
sensitive!), continues with the actual command followed by
parameters (if any) and ends with any kind of whitespace
(space, tab, newline etc.)
If incorrect syntax is detected (“parsing error”) all input
is ignored up until the next whitespace character.
Also note that any number can be entered in any format
(Hexadecimal, Decimal, Octal and binary) by adding the
corresponding prefix (‘0x’, ‘0’, ‘0b’). The only exception is
the ‘Send Frame’ command (AT$SF) which expects a list of
hexadecimal digits without any prefix.
Standby
After Power−Up and after finishing a SIGFOX
transmission, AX−Sigfox enters Standby mode. In Standby
mode, AX−Sigfox listens on the UART for commands from
the host. Also, OOB frames are transmitted whenever the
OOB timer fires. To conserve power, the AX−Sigfox can be
put into Sleep or turned off (Deep Sleep) completely.
Return Codes
A successful command execution is indicated by sending
‘OK’. If a command returns a value (e.g. by querying a
register) only the value is returned.
Examples
Bold text is sent to AX−Sigfox.
AT$I=0
AXSEM AT Command Interface
Here, we execute command ‘I’ to query some general
information.
AT$SF=aabb1234
OK
This sends a Sigfox frame containing { 0x00 : 0x11 : 0x22
: 0x33 : 0x44 }, then waits for a downlink response telegram,
which in this example contains { 0xAA : 0xBB : 0xCC :
0xDD }.
AT$CB=0011223344,1
OK
RX=AA BB CC DD
Sleep
The command AT$P=1 is used to put the AX−Sigfox into
Sleep mode. In this mode, only the wakeup timer for
out−of−band messages is still running. To wake the
AX−Sigfox up from Sleep mode toggle the serial UARTRX
pin, e.g. by sending a break (break is an RS232 framing
violation, i.e. at least 10 bit durations low). When an Out of
Band (OOB) message is due, AX−Sigfox automatically
wakes up to transmit the message, and then returns to Sleep
mode.
Deep Sleep
In Deep Sleep mode, the AX−Sigfox is completely turned
off and only draws negligible leakage current. Deep Sleep
mode can be activated with AT$P=2. To wake−up from
Deep Sleep mode, GPIO9 is pulled to GND.
www.onsemi.com
11
AX−SIGFOX
AT$P=1
OK
This transitions the device into sleep mode. Out−of−band
transmissions will still be triggered. The UART is powered
down. The device can be woken up by a low level on the
UART signal, i.e. by sending break.
This sends a Sigfox frame containing { 0xAA : 0xBB : 0x12
: 0x34 } without waiting for a response telegram.
AT$CB=0xAA,1
OK
The ‘CB’ command sends out a continuous pattern of bits,
in this case 0xAA = 0b10101010.

Set Power Mode
To conserve power, the AX−Sigfox can be put to sleep manually.
Depending on power mode, you will be responsible for waking up the
AX−Sigfox again!
0: software reset (settings will be reset to values in flash)
1: sleep (send a break to wake up)
2: deep sleep (toggle GPIO9 or RESET_N pin to wake up;
the AX−SIgfox is not running and all settings will be reset!)
AT$WR
Save Config
Write all settings to flash (RX/TX frequencies, registers) so they
survive reset/deep sleep or loss of power.
Use AT$P=0 to reset the AX−Sigfox and load settings from flash.
AT:Pn?
Get GPIO Pin
Return the setting of the GPIO Pin n; n can range from 0 to 9.
A character string is returned describing the mode of the pin, followed by the actual value. If the pin is configured as analog pin, then
the voltage (range 0…1 V) is returned. The mode characters have
the following meaning:

AT:ADC Pn[−Pn[(1V|10V)]]?
Get GPIO Pin Analog Voltage
Measure the voltage applied to a GPIO pin. The command also
allows measurement of the voltage difference across two GPIO pins.
In differential mode, the full scale range may also be specified as 1 V
or 10 V. Note however that the pin input voltages must not exceed
the range 0..VDD_IO. The command returns the result as fraction of
the full scale range (1 V if none is specified). The GPIO pins
referenced should be initialized to analog mode before issuing this
command.
AT:SPI[(A|B|C|D)]=bytes
SPI Transaction
This command clocks out bytes on the SPI port. The clock frequency
is 312.5 kHz. The command returns the bytes read on MISO during output. Optionally the clocking mode may be specified (default is A):
Mode

Note that SEL, if needed, is not generated by this command,
and must instead be driven using standard GPIO commands
(AT:Pn=0|1).
AT:CLK=freq,reffreq
Set Clock Generator
Output a square wave on the pin(s) set to T mode. The frequency of
the square wave is (freq / 216) × reffreq. Possible values for reffreq
are 20000000, 10000000, 5000000, 2500000, 1250000, 625000,
312500, 156250. Possible values if freq are 0…65535.
AT:CLK=OFF
Turn off Clock Generator

QFN40 Recommended Pad Layout
1. PCB land and solder masking recommendations
are shown in Figure 7.
A = Clearance from PCB thermal pad to solder mask opening, 0.0635 mm minimum
B = Clearance from edge of PCB thermal pad to PCB land, 0.2 mm minimum
C = Clearance from PCB land edge to solder mask opening to be as tight as possible
to ensure that some solder mask remains between PCB pads.
D = PCB land length = QFN solder pad length + 0.1 mm
E = PCB land width = QFN solder pad width + 0.1 mm
Figure 7. PCB Land and Solder Mask Recommendations
3. For the PCB thermal pad, solder paste should be
printed on the PCB by designing a stencil with an
array of smaller openings that sum to 50% of the
QFN exposed pad area. Solder paste should be
applied through an array of squares (or circles) as
shown in Figure 8.
4. The aperture opening for the signal pads should be
between 50−80% of the QFN pad area as shown in
Figure 9.
5. Optionally, for better solder paste release, the
aperture walls should be trapezoidal and the
corners rounded.
6. The fine pitch of the IC leads requires accurate
alignment of the stencil and the printed circuit
board. The stencil and printed circuit assembly
should be aligned to within + 1 mil prior to
application of the solder paste.
7. No−clean flux is recommended since flux from
underneath the thermal pad will be difficult to
clean if water−soluble flux is used.
2. Thermal vias should be used on the PCB thermal
pad (middle ground pad) to improve thermal
conductivity from the device to a copper ground
plane area on the reverse side of the printed circuit
board. The number of vias depends on the package
thermal requirements, as determined by thermal
simulation or actual testing.
3. Increasing the number of vias through the printed
circuit board will improve the thermal
conductivity to the reverse side ground plane and
external heat sink. In general, adding more metal
through the PC board under the IC will improve
operational heat transfer, but will require careful
attention to uniform heating of the board during
assembly.
Assembly Process
Stencil Design & Solder Paste Application
1. Stainless steel stencils are recommended for solder
paste application.
2. A stencil thickness of 0.125 – 0.150 mm
(5 – 6 mils) is recommended for screening.
