The new DP1203 Series radio-only RF transceiver module from Linx Technologies (Merlin, OR) is designed for the wireless transmission of digital data at data rates of up to 152.3kbps. This module series is ideal for applications that require full-control of the radio channels and configuration, without having to go through the effort and expense of a discrete RF design.
The DP1203 Series transceiver module contains all of the components necessary for the radio link, but is otherwise completely configurable. All of the transceiver configuration registers are available to optimize the RF link for the application with an external microprocessor through a 3-wire interface. This allows the designer the ability to optimize the module for their specific needs. This includes controlling the radio to maximize battery life and optimize communication protocol. It also includes the ability adjust the radio on the fly to improve the link quality through Received Signal Strength (RSSI) and Frequency Error Indicator (FEI) features. The DP1203 modules can be used in any environment where wireless remote connection is an advantage. They are perfect for complex wireless networks involving high speed data rate applications. Application examples include security systems, home and industrial automation, process, access and building controls and home appliance interconnections. Features include:
- Operating in the 433, 868 and 915MHz license-free ISM (Industrial Scientific and Medical) frequency bands.
- The module has a maximum output power of +15dBm and a receiver sensitivity of –111dBm.
- Typical line of sight range of 2 to 3 miles (3.2 to 4.8km) at the maximum output power with typical monopole whip antennas, depending on frequency.
