Long Range RF Transceiver Modules
The LT Series transceiver is ideally suited to a diverse range of consumer and industrial applications that require reliable, low-cost, bi-directional communication. It operates in the favorable 260 to 470MHz band, and is designed for full regulatory compliance and interference immunity, ideally suiting them to domestic as well as export wireless applications. The transceiver is capable of generating +10dBm into a 50-ohm load and achieves an outstanding typical sensitivity of -112dBm. The module allows for the transparent transfer of serial data at rates of up to 10kbps over distances of up to 3,000 feet from virtually any data source, including microcontrollers and transcoder chips. These RoHS-compliant modules are housed in a tiny SMD package that are well-suited to both prototyping and high-volume production. The modules operate over a 2.1 to 3.6VDC range and feature very low power consumption, a wide operational temperature range, adjustable transmitter power, and RSSI output. As with all Linx RF modules, no external RF components are required (except an antenna), which allows rapid integration, even by engineers without previous RF design experience.
